When a woman has an unplanned pregnancy, she's dealing with many emotions. One of the things we do at our center is we give them an options counseling session. We give them the ideas that they can carry the child to full-term. They have the option for adoption. They can terminate the pregnancy through abortion. They have to make the decision on their own as to what choice is best for them, Everyone comes together to decide what is best for the woman and what she wants to do.
