Pregnancy Options

Making a decision about a pregnancy is personal. Accurate information and support helps, but only you can know what’s best for you. No matter your decision, we're here to provide compassionate and nonjudgmental care.

Compassionate, Nonjudgmental Care

Sometimes deciding what to do about a pregnancy is easy. Other times, it’s difficult or complicated.

Your decision is very personal, and everyone’s situation is different. Ultimately, decisions about whether to choose adoption, end a pregnancy, or raise a child must be left to an individual, their family, their faith, and with the counsel of their medical provider. No matter your choice, we will never judge you.

What are my options if I'm pregnant?

People who are pregnant have three options: parenting, adoption, or abortion. At Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, we're here to give you accurate information about all of your options without shame or stigma.

Parenting

The decision to raise a child is a very important and very personal one, and only you know what's best for your situation. So how do you know if parenting is the right choice for you? 

A number of factors can impact your decision to become a parent — family, relationships, money, school, work, life goals, personal beliefs, and the well-being of your future child. Learn more about parenthood and how to decide whether it's right for you.

Adoption

Some people choose adoption when they find out they're pregnant. Everyone has their own unique and valid reasons for choosing adoption, and only you know if that's the right choice in your case.

If you're interested in adoption, our staff can provide you with more information, local resources and refer you to adoption agencies. Learn more about whether adoption is right for you.

Abortion

There are two ways of ending a pregnancy: an abortion procedure and a medication abortion (the abortion pill). Both are safe and very common. If you're pregnant and considering abortion, we're here to help.

Abortion Procedure

Abortion procedures, sometimes called in-clinic abortions, work by using gentle suction to take a pregnancy out of your uterus. They are extremely safe and effective. Planned Parenthood Center for Choice at Prevention Park offers abortion procedures up to 21.6 weeks after your last menstrual period. Learn more about abortion procedures.

Medication Abortion (The Abortion Pill)

A medication abortion, also known as the abortion pill, is the common name for using two different medicines to end a pregnancy: mifepristone and misoprostol. The abortion pill is very safe and effective. Our Stafford and Prevention Park health centers offer medication abortion up to 10 weeks. Learn more about the abortion pill.
