Q4. I am thinking about having an abortion; what do I need to consider?

A4. Make sure that it is the right decision for you. It is a personal decision which you make for your own reasons only. Everyone’s circumstances are different and where abortion may be right for some people it may not be the best option for others.

Much depends upon what stage you are at in your pregnancy and your feelings about abortion in general. Everyone has their own sense of morality which affects their attitudes towards abortion.

It is a good idea to obtain as much information as you can about abortion. Do plenty of research, visit sites such as this one and talk to anyone who has been in a similar situation.

Your GP or local family planning centre can help.

Your personal circumstances, state of health and reasons for abortion will all be taken into account before you make your decision.

Think about what is right for you, your values and opinions and your current circumstances.
