Lack of Unplanned Pregnancy Resources

Many birth mothers of an unplanned pregnancy, especially those who experienced a sexual assault, tend to lack the proper resources that are required to take care of a child. There are a variety of factors that might contribute to an individual’s lack of readiness to take care of a child. This includes a lack of resources and inadequacies (such as housing and educational opportunities), or Some people may propose asking a relative or close friend to help care for the child; however, this is not always possible and might put a strain on existing ties.  Putting your baby up for adoption may be the best option for you if you are going through some of the challenges listed above.

In New York, you are able to receive an abortion if you are up to 24 weeks pregnant. If you are more than 24 weeks, it may be possible to still receive an abortion only if you are experiencing health risks.
