Are you feeling afraid, confused, and just overwhelmed at the thought of telling your parents about your unplanned pregnancy? What will they say, and how will they act? We understand, but you are not alone. 

In Alabama, the state law requires consent to a minor’s abortion from a parent, legal guardian, or judge. We know it’s not easy to share the news with your parents, but you are braver than you know. You can do this.
As a minor, it’s important to understand the options and resources available to you, as well as the laws in place surrounding your pregnancy. 

After A Positive Pregnancy Test

A positive pregnancy test is not enough when it comes to pregnancy confirmation. An ultrasound is needed to safeguard your health. 

An ultrasound will confirm the following three pregnancy details that will determine if you’re eligible for abortion:

  1. How far along you are (known as gestational age)
  2. The viability of your pregnancy (if there’s a heartbeat & pregnancy is progressing)
  3. The location of your pregnancy (whether it’s located within the uterus or not)

Ultrasounds can also alert you to potential pregnancy complications like miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy. In these cases, you would not be eligible for abortion but would want to seek immediate medical attention with your medical provider.

Even when considering abortion, know that abortion is one of your three pregnancy options: abortion, adoption, and parenting.
