I’ve Already Had an Abortion and Don’t Want Another One. What Are My Options?

Posted on August 16, 2023 by Metro Women's Care

Women that have already had one abortion often do not want to experience a second abortion. Often they are concerned about the physical and mental effects their previous abortion had on them and do not want to relive that experience.

Making decisions about your reproductive health can be emotionally complex. Knowing you have options is essential, and the choice is ultimately yours.


One option you have is parenting. While parenting comes with its own challenges and sacrifices, it also offers a unique and profound sense of joy and fulfillment.

Parenting might involve lifestyle adjustments and a commitment of time and finances, but many find that the sacrifices are outweighed by the love and connection they share with their child.

Metro Women’s Care offers valuable resources that can provide you with parenting support. Here you will find a range of services and resources, from parenting education to material assistance. We are here to help you navigate the practical aspects of parenting. We can also connect you with government resources, community support, and a network of individuals who understand your situation and are ready to offer assistance.


Adoption is another equally valid option to consider. This choice involves carrying the pregnancy to term with the intention of placing the child in the care of loving, adoptive parents.

While adoption can be emotionally challenging, it also holds the potential for a bright future for you and your child. This decision takes immense strength and selflessness as you prioritize your child's well-being.

Adoption plans come in various forms, allowing you to choose the level of involvement you want in your child's life after placement.

Open adoptions, for example, provide the opportunity for ongoing contact and communication with the adoptive family. This way, you can maintain a connection while ensuring your child's needs are met in a stable environment.

Closed adoptions allow you to maintain your privacy and confidentiality by sealing your information after the adoption.
