A pregnancy decision can be one of the most challenging choices to make in life. While the decision is ultimately yours to make, here is more information to know if abortion or adoption is right for you. Each pregnancy choice has its challenges.

What is Abortion Like?

Abortion is a major medical decision, and there are two main types of abortions done, depending on how far along you are in pregnancy.

Medical Vs. Surgical Abortion

Medical abortion terminates a pregnancy by taking two drugs: mifepristone and misoprostol. According to Mayo Clinic, common physical risks of medical abortion include:

  • Incomplete abortion, which may need to be followed by surgical abortion
  • An ongoing pregnancy (if the procedure fails)
  • Heavy and prolonged bleeding
  • Digestive system discomfort
  • Infection
  • Fever

Dilation & Evacuation (D&E) and Dilation & Curettage (D&C) are two types of surgical abortion that work to dilate your cervix and use surgical tools to remove the pregnancy from the uterus. Each type of surgical abortion uses similar processes of termination and comes with the same risks, including:

  • Perforation of the uterus (when a surgical instrument pokes a hole in the uterus)
  • Damage to the cervix
  • Scar tissue on the uterine wall
  • Infection
  • Excessive bleeding 

What is Adoption Like?

Adoption can be a rewarding yet challenging journey. There are three types of adoption plans to choose from: open, closed, and semi-open adoption. Birth mothers have the flexibility to choose the plan that works best for them. 

Some women struggling financially, mentally, or with relationships in their homes often choose adoption. If you want open communication with your child and adoptive family, open adoption is for you.

You can choose a closed adoption if you want to have no contact with your child or adoptive family due to life’s circumstances. Finally, semi-open adoption is a middle ground, where all communication is done through a third party.
