Helping A Friend
Are you visiting this site to help a friend who may be in an unplanned pregnancy? If so, they are very fortunate to have someone like you in their life that cares enough to help with information and support.
Your friend is probably very scared about a possible pregnancy. It could be that she’s experiencing panic and insisting that abortion is her only choice. The first thing you should do is to encourage her to verify the pregnancy at Pathways Pregnancy Help Center. She doesn’t need to make any decisions until she is sure that she is pregnant. Please consider coming with her for the visit. Pathways Pregnancy Help Center provides free medical quality pregnancy tests . We won’t tell anyone of her visit with us as her confidentiality is important. We are there to help her explore all of her options. Our assistance is caring, compassionate and free.
When clients have a positive pregnancy test, Pathways Pregnancy Help Center takes the time to provide her with detailed information about all her options – single parenting, marriage, adoption or abortion – and our extensive support services. Many women initially feel like they have no other choice but to abort their babies. With Pathways Pregnancy Help Center’s physical and emotional support services, many realize that they have the ability to consider other options like single parenting, get married or placing their baby for adoption.
If your friend is pregnant, please understand that her decision could impact you. If she wants an abortion, encourage her to take the time to investigate all her options. There is no reason to rush or panic. Abortion decisions are permanent and cannot be reverse.
Understand that many friends who accompanied women to abortion facilities feel “responsible” for the abortion. Some share that they were traumatized by the experience afterwards. Accompanying her for an abortion may be something that wounds your heart in the future.
Many women who have had abortions share that they held deep anger against individuals who assisted with their abortions because “they didn’t stop them” from making a choice that they would later regret. This could be a moment in time that you remember for the rest of your life. Be a friend by providing her with the best support available through Pathways Pregnancy Help Center.
This could be a moment in time that you remember for the rest of your life. Be sure to allow those memories to be “comfortable” by providing her with the best support available through our center.

Regardless of your feelings about abortion, it’s best to offer your friend everything that can help her make an informed decision. If she is determined to have an abortion, you won’t be any less of a friend if you don’t accompany her to the facility. Encourage her to visit Pathways Pregnancy Help Center and learn about all her options. In doing so you will be able to look back at this time and understand that you truly helped her in a time of need!
