How Does Abortion Work?
There are two main types of abortion procedures that result in terminating an existing pregnancy. Both are considered medical procedures but are very different methods: chemical and surgical abortion.
As with any medical procedure, both come with risks and should be thoroughly discussed with a medical professional before deciding if abortion is right for you.
- Chemical Abortion is the process of removing pregnancy tissue through a medication regimen.
- Surgical Abortion is the removal process of pregnancy tissue through a more invasive procedure that uses instruments such as vacuum and suctioning techniques.
While abortion is often considered a quick fix, it’s worth taking time to carefully consider any potential adverse physical or emotional reactions before deciding to get an abortion.
What’s Adoption Like?
These days, the birth mother and father come up with the life plan for their child. You get to select the family, the environment in which your child will be raised, and if you want to have contact.
The three adoption types include an open, closed, or semi-open adoption. The one you pick is based on how much interaction and what kind of relationship you desire to have with your child and the adoptive family.
The Adoptive Family
You have a say when it comes to who adopts your baby. There is a lengthy process potential adoptive families go through, including in-depth questionnaires, in-home studies, background checks, and more.
If you work with an adoption agency, they will match you with a family with the best potential, and you can see details, including pictures, hobbies, religion, and more. You get control over who is the best fit to adopt your baby and what type of adoption you’d like to move forward with.
