Plan C

Do you feel confident in your plan? How about a new plan?

 

Plan A…. Have sex. Did that plan include birth control or other forms of contraception? Did that plan succeed? In a national survey done by The Society for Women’s Health, it was found that 43{909da48ad593815cb90f20faf8b9ea30c7655185ddd4210efebf3c3df1113258} of 1,000 women across the U.S. become pregnant by accident, and about 50{909da48ad593815cb90f20faf8b9ea30c7655185ddd4210efebf3c3df1113258} of those pregnancies were caused by birth control failure.

 

Plan B… Also known as the “Morning after pill”, it is intended to be taken within 72 hours. This form of emergency contraception almost always invokes a negative reaction in the hormonal cycle, which can cause many adverse side effects. Even then, Plan B may not be an effective solution.

 

Sometimes, your Plan-A and Plan-B fail, or perhaps you simply didn’t plan to be in this situation and now you are onto Plan-C.

 

Plan C… Have an abortion. This can be effective in terminating a pregnancy, can cause negative responses throughout the body and/or mind. Post-Abortion Syndrome (PAS) affects 19{909da48ad593815cb90f20faf8b9ea30c7655185ddd4210efebf3c3df1113258} of women, and may cause grief, nightmares, anxiety, and irritability, even months after the procedure. Even worse, 10-30{909da48ad593815cb90f20faf8b9ea30c7655185ddd4210efebf3c3df1113258} of women experience some form of serious psychological problems, which can become developmentally very persistent. Physically, the body’s response can be uncontrollably painful. This method can easily cause more harm than good, and can quickly become a bad option for your health.

 

When Plans A, B, and C aren’t right for you, and you’re facing an unexpected pregnancy, it is best not to make a hasty decision. During this important decision, you should surround yourself with people who want to uplift, educate and mentor you through this experience, all to give you the best outcome and the most resources.

 

This would be a good time to reach out to someone. Perhaps you cannot reach out to your best friend or family member, simply because they wouldn’t understand how Plans A, B and C aren’t for you. Or maybe someone you believed would be there for you just can’t help…

 

Reach out to us. There are options readily available to you to lovingly guide you.

 

Real choices with positive effects and empowering results are here and available to help.

Why You Need an Ultrasound Before Your Abortion

You might be thinking “I’ll just get this over with quickly, then I’ll be done with this problem.” But the truth is it’s not that simple? Some people may advise you that it’s fast, easy, and you’ll have no problems recuperating afterward.  But in all honesty, they are not disclosing the truth, nor giving you the “full story.” Don’t you think you have the right to know the whole truth BEFORE making your decision? What are they NOT telling you?  Or what may “THEY” not know?

First of all, did know you may not even need an abortion? Statistics show that somewhere between 20-25{909da48ad593815cb90f20faf8b9ea30c7655185ddd4210efebf3c3df1113258} of all pregnancies end in a miscarriage.   An ultrasound is a safe & painless way to help show you not only the (approximate) number of weeks you may be pregnant, but if this is even a viable pregnancy.

What does it mean if something is “viable”? According to Merriam-Webster English Dictionary, “The adjective ‘viable’ refers to something able to function properly and even grow. It is made up of the Latin root vita, which means ‘life,’ and the ending -able, which meansto be possible.’ “This basically means they are checking to verify that there is truly a life inside of you. The clinic, doctor, ultra-sonographer (person performing the ultrasound), nurses or other health professionals at the facility may or may not even tell you this. It is definitely not “just tissue!”

In addition, during your ultrasound, you have the right to SEE what the doctor or technician is visualizing on their screen. However, in some cases, professions may turn the monitor away, so you cannot see what they are looking at or doing on the screen. But you cannot just ignore it – this is happening right inside of YOU. It is absolutely your right-both morally and, in some states, legally for the practitioners to honor your request to “Show me”.

If you are far enough along, you may even be able to see or hear a heartbeat. Which begins to beat just 21 days after conception.  That is a very exhilarating experience! And even more exciting, you may also be able see organs forming or arms and legs moving about.  Did you know that by 40-45 days after conception all major organs have begun to develop?  What you are seeing is a new human life. Can you just imagine that?

Having an abortion is a major decision and it is imperative that you research your options and know all the facts prior to proceeding.  Ramona Women’s Clinic empowers women and couples to address the pressures that leave them feeling like abortion is their only option.  With support, many choose alternatives to abortion like parenting or adoption. We hope we’ve given you enough food for thought. And that you will have the courage to say “Show me!”

Crisis!

Someone once said a crisis is “a decision not made.”

The dictionary on my “smart phone” defines crisis as (1) “a stage in a sequence of events at which the trend of all future events, especially for better or worse is determined; turning point.” Or (2) “a dramatic emotional or circumstantial upheaval in a person’s life.”

If you are a teenager, crises come often and pass quickly—as an elderly person, crises are often dismissed as “This too shall pass.”

If you are facing an “un-planned pregnancy,” your decision making may be forced to be made in a “heartbeat” in some states and up to 9 months in others.

Here at Ramona Women’s Clinic, our loving and life-affirming staff will freely share the many options you have, so your “decision” will be the right one for you.

It is only a “Crisis” for a very short time. The decisions you make today may change the entire trajectory of your life – For better or for worse. Remember you are making an important decision that will affect the life of not ONLY you, but at least one other person! So choose wisely and think “long-term”.

Take heart, dear one. You will get through this crisis and not only strive, but THRIVE!

Unplanned but Chosen

Unplanned but chosen.  Unplanned does not mean life is over or that you’re without resources. Unplanned means a direction change and a new opportunity.  And what is unplanned is coming from a surprised perspective.  What may be a surprise to you can often be a blessing in disguise like the mystery in an unwrapped gift.  Is the gift what you want or what someone specially chose for you?  Either way we know to be grateful to the giver of gifts.  In the case of LIFE the Giver is God and your surprise is His chosen plan for you and your baby.  Every life has intrinsic value and a purpose to contribute to our world because of God’s design.   New life is always a gift and a unique and special blessing.  It’s not to be taken for granted, because we know there are many who experience infertility today and long for a baby.  A positive pregnancy test may cause fear to the uniformed but that can be remedied.  Information brings knowledge, peace of mind, and access to resources to support mom and baby.  An unopened package of resources needs a mom’s hands and courage to embrace the surprises of support that are inside.  These resources are available to those who pursue them and our clinic is especially designed to help moms be successful at getting them.  It’s not about the money but the willingness and diligence to care for the baby from the start.  Getting informed about doctors, a healthy lifestyle, baby supplies, baby development, delivery options, and more is needed.  Women are uniquely equipped to provide for the next generation and impact their world.  It’s up to women to rise to the challenge of bringing in new life and offering change to our world.  Come and visit our clinic and see for yourself. You were chosen for such a time as this to be a life changer. Don’t let fear steal your joy. Get informed.

Positive Test? Now What?

“Surprise !?  All I wanted was a closer relationship with my boyfriend, and now I think I have a positive pregnancy test.”   Maybe it’s not true.  How can you know for sure?  This is a serious matter that needs verification, but without breaking the bank.    The Ramona Women’s Clinic can meet this need by both a urine test and an ultrasound at no charge to you.  Even a positive urine test does not mean the baby is in a position to support their own life.  That information can only be known by an ultrasound. This is the objective clinical information you need and our clinic can provide to all who seek our services.  Once this information is known, then the next step of decision making will be made by an informed mother, not someone in a state of panic.  A mother’s decision to choose life for her baby or not needs careful thought.  One decision path ends quickly and there’s no turning back, while the other may look like a mountain too high to climb but hasn’t it been done before?  How is that mountain of carrying an unplanned baby accomplished?  You may have no money, no insurance, and no place to stay, but did you know there are resources for these needs, too?  You need more information.  This may be a challenging time but it’s up to you to rise up and seek out this knowledge for your own sake.  How have other women felt after an abortion?  How have they felt after giving life to their baby and selecting an adoption family?  Why can’t you just google this choice?  This decision is not black and white or a computer calculation from a machine.  It’s a human choice that impacts human life for both mother, father, and baby. How will you do it?   Surely, you should gather information.  Many have been in this place before.  How did they decide?  Does everyone trembling in fear get informed with no regrets?  Come and find out.  Seekers are welcomed here.  Then you’re ready to make your decision.
