Know your options

It is important to have accurate information when you are making a decision around an unplanned pregnancy. This is a personal decision that only you know what is best for you. We are here to support you and ensure you know all of your options.



Your options

Unplanned pregnancies are more common experiences than most people expect. About half of all women in Oregon and Washington have an unplanned pregnancy at some point in their lives. There are three options:

  • Parenting - giving birth and raising a child

  • Adoption - giving birth and placing your child with another person or family

  • Abortion - taking medication or having a procedure that ends pregnancy


Boys & Girls Aid believes all women should be given the opportunity to decide what is best for them when experiencing an unplanned pregnancy. We hope to empower you to think about each option, whether it is adoption, parenting, or abortion, and make a plan that works best for whatever you decide. We honor each woman’s unique circumstances.

We are experienced working with people from all backgrounds and circumstances. Boys & Girls Aid is a non-sectarian 501c3 nonprofit, which means we will provide unbiased counseling. Our goal is to provide support and get you all the information you need to make the best decision.
