Pregnant and Feeling Alone? You’re Not. Here’s Where to Get Help.

Home / Pregnancy Resource Centers / Pregnant and Feeling Alone? You’re Not. Here’s Where to Get Help.

Live Action News — An unplanned pregnancy often brings challenges; having no support makes those challenges a lot worse. If you’re pregnant and don’t know where to turn, you might feel like you’re on your own. Let’s fix that.

First, check out pregnancy care centers and maternity homes. You can find one by visiting OptionLine.org or by texting “Helpline” to 313131. One of the largest pregnancy center networks is called CareNet. It provides free pregnancy testing along with material resources and information; some pregnancy care centers administer STI tests and ultrasounds for pregnancy confirmation as well.

Pregnancy care centers can also give you information about adoption. You might not feel ready to raise your baby, and if that’s the case, I’ve got some good news: plenty of people are. Couples seeking to adopt actually outnumber available infants; one place you can find them is Adoption.com. It’s a website where those who have been approved by a licensed adoption agency can create a profile. You can sort through them by location, age, religion, or other criteria. More information, including how to create an adoption plan, can be found at AdoptHelp.com.

This is the kind of help you won’t find at Planned Parenthood, which doesn’t offer ultrasounds (unless you’re having an abortion), and which offers little to no help with adoption or prenatal care. They’ve admitted this themselves in undercover recorded phone conversations:

Whether you’re pregnant or not, getting medical care can be tough when you don’t have insurance. That’s why a number of pro-life groups created GetYourCare.org. It features a map showing your nearest federally qualified health centers. Pro-lifers also run clinics for new moms, like Tennessee’s Morning Center and Colorado’s Bella Natural Women’s Care. You can learn more about them here.

Another type of care pro-lifers are providing is abortion pill reversal. If you’ve already started a medical abortion but changed your mind, it may not be too late if you’ve only taken the first pill, mifepristone. Chemical abortion is a multi-step process, explained in the video below by former abortionist, Dr. Anthony Levatino:

Nurses are available 24 hours a day at (877) 558-0333, and they can help you find a doctor who assists with abortion reversal. More information is available at AbortionPillReversal.com.

Finally, sometimes moms need legal help. If you’re being pressured to abort and fear violence, call the police. For help with other kinds of pressure, check out the Justice Foundation and its Center Against Forced Abortions (CAFA). CAFA “was created to provide legal resources to mothers who are being forced or coerced into an unwanted abortion.”

You can download letters addressed to partners, parents, and abortion staff explaining the potential legal consequences of a forced abortion. For more information or to reach an attorney, call 210-614-7157 or email [email protected]. Other places to turn include Alliance Defending Freedom, the Thomas More Law CenterACLJLiberty Counsel, the American Freedom Law CenterLife Legal Defense Foundation, and the Foundation for Moral Law.

Of course, this information isn’t just meant for new moms: if you know someone who’s pregnant or fathered a child, you can use it to support them as well. New babies bring a range of emotions, and all too often, that includes feeling alone. It’s a feeling pro-lifers want to change.
