If you have unexpectedly found yourself pregnant, it can seem like your world is falling apart. If you have aspirations in your education or your career, a baby seems like an impossible addition to those goals. It might seem like an abortion is the answer to your fears. Abortion is not some quick fix, it is a choice that carries grief, physical complications, and often great regret for women who choose it. Before you make such a huge decision, consider an alternative perspective.

In fact, many women who are in situations just like you, have found that having a baby helped their perspective change in a way that made them better students and employees.
