Melissa had an abortion in June. She didn’t realize how much it would affect her. She told our counselor, “The children you abort haunt you.” She hadn’t received counseling before her abortion. Sadly, 67% of women considering an abortion receive no counseling before the procedure. With this pregnancy she asked, “Do I have to have an abortion? I think if I could get help, maybe I could keep my baby or maybe someone would want to adopt her. I don’t think I could go through with another abortion.”
Through First Care, Melissa found a safe place to learn about the life growing inside of her, the many avenues of adoption, and an entire system of support available to help her choose life for her child.
