If you think you might be pregnant, you may have some difficult decisions to make. It can be overwhelming to try and consider all of them by yourself. Compassion Women’s Center is here to help process all the information.
You may feel like you have to make an immediate decision about your pregnancy, but that is not the case. Give yourself time to explore your feelings and your options before you make a decision you can’t change. Try not to think only about your current circumstances. Consider how different your life may be in the future as you decide what is the right choice for you and your baby.
Talking with your friends may help you cope, but do keep in mind that they are not experts on abortion. You should talk to someone who frequently answers questions on abortion and knows the medical facts. You owe it to yourself and your baby to be informed. Oklahoma law even requires you to give informed consent prior to an abortion. The law is called the Women's Right to Know Act.
Our caring volunteers at Compassion Women’s Center of Rogers County are here to listen to you and help you regardless of what choice you make. We will always be honest with you. Unlike abortion clinics, we have no financial incentive in your decision. There is never a fee for our service, and your visit at our Claremore, Oklahoma, office is confidential.
