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.

Choices

Where can someone facing an unplanned pregnancy find choice?  The word “choice” is used a lot when considering a pregnancy decision. While most people are uncomfortable with the thought of ending a pregnancy, using the word “choice” as a euphemism is more helpful to the abortion movement.

But where can one truly find choice? At abortion centers, the only product offered is . . . Abortion. No one has options at an abortion center; one can either terminate a pregnancy or walk back out the door.  Yet, at Ramona Women’s Clinic, anyone facing an unplanned pregnancy is given a wide range of choices to consider. In truth there are five options in every pregnancy: Adoption, Marriage, Single Parenting, Co-Parenting, and, yes, abortion.

Ours is the only organization where a person can find support for four of the five choices one might consider; and is the only place where full disclosure is provided for the fifth option, abortion.  After all, when one is selling a product like abortion, many facts must be left unsaid, or the buyer may walk away.

So again, let’s ask, “Where can someone facing an unplanned pregnancy find choice?”  When we consider this question we quickly realize that an industry that sells one product is falsely advertising to its target audience when they claim they offer choice. Politicians, media outlets, and more have seized on this word and . . . propagated an absolute myth.  Choice?

The fact is, we are choice, and always have been.  And yet there is more. With the many choices we support at Ramona Women’s Clinic we offer something extremely powerful in any life: Hope. Hope takes place when a decision made is positive for all involved, including the child waiting to be born. In addition, hope grows when the decision doesn’t violate one’s conscience.  This is our goal: To offer true choice, and true hope. We do this every day at Ramona Women’s Clinic regardless of what we hear from those who focus only on one option.

For nearly 30 years here, there are no myths. Here, there are no sales techniques.  But here, there is hope.  And yes, there is life.  And there always will be.
