Congratulations if it is the best news. You'll find info to help you along the way in the links section. It is a wonderful adventure. And if it isn't the best thing ever let's
think about this without panicking. Please read all of the following because Planned Parenthood won't tell you these things. The following my save YOUR life as well as the baby you are carrying.
Did you know that all the DNA
your baby needs to develop into a fully formed infant is already
present, and your baby's sex, hair color and eye color are already
At 18 days [when the mother is only four days late for her first menstrual period], and by 21 days it is
pumping, through a closed circulatory system, blood whose type is different from that of the mother. J.M. Tanner, G. R. Taylor, and the
Editors of Time-Life Books, Growth, New York: Life Science Library, 1965, p. So any time after that you really are stopping a beating heart.
Please remember that being pregnant will be only 9 months out of your life (and sometimes less) so it isn't the end of the world. Telling yourself the truth at this time will be very helpful. Truth is: maybe this isn't the best time but the positive side is that it may just be the right time for someone else to get the baby they've prayed about for years. And YOU are their answer. Yes YOU will actually be able to deliver the gift from God Himself. Oh so you don't think this was the gift from God? Well the bible says that children are a gift from God without exception!! My adoptive parents thought I was their gift from heaven even though I was conceived in rape!
Studies have also proven it is healthier to give birth than to abort. Planned Parenthood won't tell you this and if you ask they very well might deny the facts . But breast cancer has been linked to abortions as well as infertility not to mention the emotional trauma.
The Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer writes on their site:
"In 1986, government scientists wrote a letter to the British journal Lancet and acknowledged that abortion is a cause of breast cancer. They wrote, "Induced abortion before first term pregnancy increases the risk of breast cancer." (Lancet, 2/22/86, p. 436) As of 2006, eight medical organizations recognize that abortion raises a woman's risk for breast cancer, independently of the risk of delaying the birth of a first child (a secondary effect that all experts already acknowledge). An additional medical organization, the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, issued a statement in 2003 calling on doctors to inform patients about a "highly plausible" relationship between abortion and breast cancer. General counsel for that medical group wrote an article for its journal warning doctors that three women (two Americans, one Australian) successfully sued their abortion providers for neglecting to disclose the risks of breast cancer and emotional harm, although none of the women had developed the disease."
Breast Cancer Prevention Institute of New York, along with many other doctors and organizations stand behind the research of aboriton related cancer. One group had this to say:
Association of American Physicians and Surgeons
1601 N. Tucson Blvd., Suite 9
Tucson, AZ 85716-3450
"The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons believes that patients have the right to give or withhold fully informed consent before undergoing medical treatment. This includes notification of potential adverse effects. While there is a difference of medical opinion concerning the abortion breast cancer link, there is a considerable volume of evidence supporting this link, which is, moreover, highly plausible. We believe that a reasonable person would want to be informed of the existence of this evidence before making her decision."

Read the article by Mrs. Karen Malec's, President of Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer, "The Abortion-Breast Cancer Link: How Politics
Trumped Science and Informed Consent," in the Journal of American Physicians
and Surgeons: www.jpands.org/vol8no2/malec.pdf (this is an amazing article that should be read by everyone)
The National Cancer Institute isn't telling the whole truth and neither is Planned Parenthood.
It would seem there is an agenda to prevent truth being told because less women would choose abortion knowing their own lives are at risk. The research has been there for a long time. as early as 1957, but over and over the pro abortionists try to negate those findings. Research for yourself. There is an organization called Silent No More. Men and women tell what they went through with abortion. Please take time to listen to these people who experienced it for themselves and now warn others. Planned Parenthood will not tell you these things. In fact after Abby Johnson,director for Planned Parenthood, Bryan, Texas resigned from her horrible job, Planned Parenthood tried to put a restraining order against her to not speak out. But the courts denied it. Planned Parenthood wants no one to know the truth. They make lots of money on abortions even telling Abby Johnson to increase their quota. If more women saw the choices they have and the consequences of abortion there would be fewer abortions and less money in the pockets of Planned Parenthood.
What if this was the ONLY child you could ever have? This has happened to many young women. You don't want to live with the horrible guilt that you destroyed your only child. It is so sad when women tell me that. You have the choice now if you are reading this and are pregnant. Please get a sonogram and see the life inside you.God to a pregnancy resouce center in your area. Find one that offers free sonograms.
If it is still early then you can see even at 1 week that a human life has formed.
Can you look at a baby and not say they are precious? Think of the child you are carrying as a real human being because he or she is just that. Check out the links section and go to websites that show you what your baby looks like right now. I thank my mother for giving me life no matter how hard it has been and your child will thank you too. Give that baby the chance to come back to you and hug your neck and make you the hero. Maybe you can't see the future in this but trust me if you make the decision to let your child make choices in their own life you will go away with a clear conscience and no regrets.
There are plenty of resources today that will help you with everything. There is no need to make your life hard because of a pregnancy. Just think of yourself as carrying a special delivery to a deserving couple. How you got pregnant wasn't maybe the best thing or maybe you were raped. That part is horrible. But that baby had nothing to do with it. Would you kill a child just because you knew his father was a rapist?? That's what happens when women who are raped and have abortions. Just give it some thought. I have heard many women regret abortions but I have never heard someone say they regret giving birth.
Don't you want to be somebody's hero?
You can be a hero by saving a life- your baby's life.
