If you think abortion will solve your problems - ask yourself some of the following questions: Have you received a second opinion from a different doctor that you are pregnant? Does the abortion doctor have a gynecological business outside of the abortion facility or does he/she only perform abortions? Have you seen an ultrasound of your baby yet? Would you like a free ultrasound if you are thinking of abortion? Have you seen photos of what a baby looks like at 6, 8 and more weeks gestation? The decision you make at this time will affect the rest of your life. Take time: don't rush into a quick decision - even though you may be pressured by a boyfriend or doctor or abortion clinic.
