Terminating/Aborting the Pregnancy

Receiving a prenatal diagnosis is often an unexpected thing to hear during a pregnancy.

GSF recognizes that the decision of what to do next is difficult for many people, and our goal is to make sure you have all of the information you need to make the right decision for you and your family.

Before making a decision to pursue an abortion, we do encourage individuals and couples to make sure that they have all of the information they need to make an informed decision. This is obviously a decision that cannot be undone, and it is important that you are confident in that decision.

If you are at the point where you have made the heart-wrenching and very difficult decision to terminate, you are not alone. We understand that this is a hard decision that every family must make for themselves, and make these decisions for a variety of reasons, and we support you.

One thing that the GSF team has learned over the years is that there are many different religious, cultural, and personal factors that play into this decision. Often times this is a choice that is made in cases where the pregnancy was planned and wanted, which can make this decision even more agonizing.

Your providers should be able to walk you through all of the logistics of this process and support you.  Click below to find additional online resources and support groups. If we can assist you in any other way, please contact us.
