Options Counseling

You Have Options

If you recently found out you are pregnant, it is important to take a step back and evaluate all of your options. There are rarely easy answers to the questions you are likely asking yourself, but it is important to know that there is help out there for you. The Walker Area Pregnancy Support Center understands and respects your freedom to choose, and we are here to support you as you go through that decision-making process.

One thing we always want to stress is: You have time! A decision does not have to be made today, and you should take whatever time you need to gather information so you can reach a well-considered final decision.


Before pursuing an abortion, you will need to research the facts associated with the procedures. It is important to ask yourself questions like the following:

  • Am I eligible for an abortion?
  • What types of abortion could I have?
  • Are there any risks associated with abortion?

If you are considering an abortion, it is recommended that you speak with someone before making your decision. The staff at the Walker Area Pregnancy Support Center is available to answer any questions you may have. Please schedule an appointment today to learn more.

Choosing adoption does not necessarily mean never  seeing your child again. Regardless of why you are considering it, it is important to know that adoption can provide your child with a loving and caring home while providing you with peace of mind. You may be considering adoption because:

  • You don’t feel ready to be a parent
  • Your partner is not supportive of your pregnancy
  • You feel unable to provide your child with emotional and/or financial support

If you feel adoption may be a good option for you, our staff can provide you with information and guidance and will walk with you through the adoption process.

Even for those who plan to become pregnant, deciding to have and raise a child is a life-changing event. However, having that pregnancy be unplanned can make things even more daunting. You may be unsure about parenting for the following reasons:

  • Your parents aren’t supportive
  • You are worried about how your friends will react
  • School and/or work are your main priority
  • You don’t feel mature enough to raise a child

This is certainly not an exhaustive list, and you are sure to have additional questions. If and when that happens we are available to help you find the answers to those questions.
