How often do you hear the phrase “my body, my choice”? Indeed it is. Abortion is legal in this country. But how often do you see the choices clearly laid out, and the consequences of either choice presented plainly. So many young women are left feeling alone, hopeless, judged; and as though they have no choice.
Regardless of your circumstances, there are choices if you are considering an abortion. And not only could the life of an unborn child be saved, but your life could be saved and spared traumatic heartbreak, too.
While Planned Parenthood has been in the news a lot as of late, and is often cited as the agency for women to seek assistance when considering abortion, the Bangor area is blessed to offer an alternative- First Step Pregnancy Resource Center. This alternative receives no government funding and exists solely from private donations, and all the services they offer are FREE.
