How an Adoption Plan Can Prevent Depression Caused by Abortion


 Abortions are often marketed as easy, convenient and safe. Unfortunately, many women undergo abortions without understanding the physical and mental side effects they may be left with.

Research has shown that depression is a lesser-known side effect of abortion. Women who have a past with mental illness or are currently struggling with anxiety or depression are most at risk.

You deserve to know all your options so you can be confident in the decision you make for your pregnancy and future. Adoption is one alternative that can prevent depression brought on by an abortion.

What Are The Benefits Of An Adoption?

If a woman does not want to keep her pregnancy, she may think an abortion is her only option. However, adoption can be a wonderful alternative. Here's a snapshot to help you better determine if an adoption is a good choice for you.

Can I Afford To Carry My Pregnancy To Term?

Financial concerns are among the top cited reasons women end up choosing abortion. The truth is many adoption agencies provide financial assistance to birth mothers. Whether it's help paying for prenatal appointments or buying maternity clothes, you have support should you choose adoption.

Combating Mental Illness

A 2008 report from the American Psychological Association found that an abortion can cause feelings of sadness, grief, and loss. Other women will experience a significant disorder like clinical anxiety or depression. In choosing adoption, while you may still experience feelings of loss, those feelings can be balanced with the joy you feel in knowing your child will be loved in an adoptive family.

Adoption can positively impact your self-esteem. If you're at all concerned that terminating your pregnancy could result in mental illness, adoption may be a better fit for you.
