Frequently Asked Questions

Can I have a baby and still live my life?

You may see this unplanned pregnancy as a major roadblock in your life. Thankfully, there are other routes that can get you back on track. Be encouraged to know that many women in the same situation have found the necessary help and resources to make positive choices and realize their dreams.


Does my mom or dad have to come with me to the center?

No. Free pregnancy testing, consultations, and ultrasound services may be provided without parental permission or notification.


What is the parental consent and notification law for minors in Texas?

Texas requires that one of your parents or a legal guardian give permission for your abortion, and separately, that one parent or legal guardian be told of your decision 48 hours before the abortion takes place.


Should I be concerned about having an abortion?

Abortion is not just a simple medical procedure. For many women, it is a life changing event with significant physical, emotional and spiritual consequences. Most women who struggle with past abortions say that they wish they had been told all of the facts about abortion.


What can I do about people pressuring me?

Remember, no person will be required to live with the consequences of this decision as much as you will. If your boyfriend or parents are pressuring you to make a quick decision, explain your needs and try to involve them in  counseling to explore your positive options. You have the right to continue this pregnancy if that is your choice.
