Pregnant Woman With Serious Health Risk Wonders About Abortion

My doctor told me that I'll be risking my own life by carrying my baby to term. Should I have an abortion? I was so excited when I learned that I was pregnant, but now I'm devastated and confused.



Our hearts go out to you. There are no easy answers to the agonizing questions you’re facing. Yes, doctors often recommend terminating a pregnancy (abortion) when the mother’s life is at risk. But that doesn’t mean you don’t have other options.

Don’t panic

The question you face involves two precious human lives: your baby’s and your own. There’s too much at stake to jump to conclusions. Slow down and take a deep breath. And remember that God loves you with an incomprehensible love — and He cares deeply about the life of your child.

Get a second opinion, preferably from a physician with strong pro-life convictions

From our perspective, this is probably the most important thing you can do. Take a family member or a close friend with you to your appointment. Ask hard questions, and don’t be intimidated by the doctor’s status as a medical professional. Get answers to the questions that you want resolved.

Call us

Don’t hesitate to call Focus on the Family’s Counseling department if you’d like to discuss your situation at greater length with a member of our staff. They’d be glad to come alongside you in any way they can.
