Consider Your Options

You're facing difficult choices.  We're here to help you make a fully informed decision.

If you're experiencing an unplanned pregnancy, you may feel like you're being pulled in a million different directions. The pressure may be great to make an immediate decision. Maybe you've already made up your mind and you just want to confirm the facts. Whether you decide to parent, abort or have someone raise your child, none of your choices are easy. 

Our trained staff and volunteers know that your situation is unique and important. We're here to provide you with accurate, up-to-date information to help you make an informed choice that you can live with and have no regrets.

The Pregnancy Support Center of Ulster County does not perform or refer for abortions or arrange adoptions so we have no financial interest in your decision. We hope that you visit us for information about your options, your health, and for pregnancy verification.

Parenting

It's difficult to make the decision to parent when you feel that your career, education, financial stability and relationships are in jeopardy. These are valid concerns and our client advocates will examine these issues further with you. Parenting is a lifelong commitment with many challenges and rewards. Thankfully, you do not have to face it alone. Our client advocates will be there for you and will help you prepare over the next several months if you decide to parent. 

Abortion

This decision may initially appear to be the easiest, especially when you feel that your career, education, financial stability and relationships are at stake.  These are valid concerns.  There are health risks and psychological consequences that may arise from an abortion that you should understand before you make a decision to have one.  The decision to abort should not be made quickly or under pressure. While others may have input that you value, it's your future that will be effected and you will have to live with the consequences.  Our client advocates will examine these issues with you.

Adoption

Often, the choice to place a child for adoption initially appears to be the most difficult emotional decision.  The idea of carrying a child for nine months only to release him or her into the care of another family may seem emotionally impossible. However this option may have a positive impact on your career, education, financial stability and relationships. Our centers can give you information on who to call should you choose adoption as the possible outcome for an unplanned pregnancy. 

You don't need to rush into a decision.  Take the time to seriously explore and compare all your options before you decide.  Call us for a free, confidential appointment today.  (845) 340-7355 or (845) 255-8242.
