With everything you have to think about, you may feel like no one understands your situation right now. You may be afraid to talk with someone in your life about what is happening. Lifeline is here to listen without judgment. You can meet one-on-one with a peer counselor who will listen to your feelings about pregnancy and abortion, help you process information, and talk through your options with you. The decision of how to handle your pregnancy is up to you. We are not here to tell you what to do, but rather to be a sounding board and give you the space to decide what to do next. We provide understanding and support to assist you to be able to make an informed choice from a place of confidence, not a place of panic.
Facing an unplanned pregnancy is not easy. If you are feeling pressured by someone to get an abortion, remember this is a big decision. Don’t let anyone rush you. Give yourself the time to make an informed decision that you can feel confident about. This process can feel really overwhelming, but it is helpful to take things one step at a time.
Your first step is to confirm pregnancy. At Lifeline, we offer no-cost, lab-certified pregnancy tests that provide immediate results that are over 99.9% accurate. We can also offer a limited obstetrical ultrasound to confirm a viable intrauterine pregnancy at no cost to you. This will give you more accurate information about your situation.
As with all pregnancy-related medical needs, it’s important to talk to your doctor before making a decision. If you do not have a doctor, Lifeline can provide you with a referral for a doctor or for insurance. Although Lifeline does not perform abortions or refer for abortions, we are here to listen and help you talk through all your options. We are dedicated to providing you with the support you need to make a decision for yourself.
