Helping a Friend

Are you visiting this site to help a friend who may be in a crisis pregnancy? If so, they are very fortunate to have someone like you in their life who cares enough to help with information and support.

 

Your friend is probably very scared about a possible pregnancy. It could be that she's experiencing panic and feels that abortion is her only choice. The first thing you should do is to encourage her to verify the pregnancy at our center. Our pregnancy tests are free and confidential. We will help her explore her options. We encourage you to come with her for the visit where she will receive caring and compassionate service.

If your friend is pregnant please understand that her decision could affect you. If she wants an abortion, encourage her to take the time to investigate all her options. There is no reason to rush or panic. Understand that many friends who accompanied women to abortion facilities discovered that they felt "responsible" and were even traumatized by the experience afterwards.


Abortion is a decision that many women regret. Some women will even hold deep anger against the individuals who assisted with their abortions because "they didn't stop them." This could be a moment in time that you remember for the rest of your life. Be a friend by providing her with the best support available through our center.

 

Regardless of your feelings about abortion, it's best to offer your friend everything that can help her make an informed decision. Encourage her to visit us and learn about all her options. In doing so you will be able to look back at this time and understand that you truly helped her in a time of need!
