You want to be a good friend, but you are not sure what to do when your friend tells you she is pregnant and considering abortion. Maybe your feeling overwhelmed? Or maybe you’ve never experienced this, or it hits too close to home. What can you do? We are glad you asked.


“A best friend is the only one that walks into your life when the world has walked out.” ― Shannon l. Alder

Regardless of how your friend’s pregnancy makes you feel (disappointed, sad, excited, nervous), try to focus on her thoughts and feelings. Listen to her. Be kind. Be gentle. Treat her how you want to be treated if you were in her shoes.



“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” ― Nelson Mandela

If your friend does not know where to find the help she needs, why not tell her about Real Options? We will provide HER with ALL the information and education she needs to make an informed choice. You can also tell her that as many as half of pregnancies end in miscarriage. It is very plausible that she may not even need to make an abortion decision. Regardless, of the decision she is leaning towards; she will need to know the gestational week of pregnancy.

To find out this information, she should schedule a sonogram. Our medical providers and counselors can offer her all of the information she needs to make an informed choice. We can help her weigh out all her options.



“Strong people don’t put others down. They lift them up.” ― Michael P. Watson

Give us a call! We are here to answer any questions you or your friend might have. You do not have to worry about the cost because all of our services at Real Options are FREE! We offer pregnancy tests, sonograms, and STI screening —all, of course, with her consent. If your friend thinks she may be pregnant, encourage her to come in right away.

And why not go a step further by offering to go with her. We know you care about your friend. Otherwise, you would not be online looking for help. Her decision about this unplanned pregnancy may be one of the most significant decisions she ever makes. But, remember, you have a strong voice in her decision. You can encourage her to make an appointment. At her appointment, she can share all her thoughts with someone who does not have a personal connection with her pregnancy. Regardless of her ultimate decision, we are here to support her and care for her with the utmost care and compassion. Call 972.440.0167. Or schedule an appointment HERE.
