Is Abortion My Only Option If I Don’t Have Any Money?

Finding out you’re unexpectedly pregnant can feel overwhelming.

Maybe it seems like abortion is your only option because of the financial responsibility of parenting, or you’re wondering about what expenses may be involved in the adoption process.

However, you may be surprised to learn that resources are available to support you and lighten the financial burden of parenting. Likewise, in the adoption process, the birth mother is not required to pay for any of the expenses.


In the adoption process, there is a variety of financial support available for expectant women and birth mothers.

The adoption agency or adoptive family covers pregnancy-related medical bills and the delivery, and you may also be eligible for assistance with rent, groceries, and other monthly expenses.

In modern-day adoption, you, as the birth mother, have the freedom to decide how involved you would like to be in your child’s life.

The three common types of adoption include:

  • Open adoption: You can select the family you want to adopt your baby and decide how involved you want to be in your child’s life.
  • Semi-open adoption: You can contact the adoptive family and your baby through a professional adoption agency while keeping your personal information confidential.
  • Closed adoption: You have no contact with your baby or the adoptive family, and the adoptive family has no contact with you. The court seals all adoptive information.

For some women, choosing open adoption gives them the peace of mind they need, knowing that their child is being cared for by a loving family.

No matter what option you choose, placing your child for adoption is a very selfless decision.


Maybe you’re not at the place in your life that you thought you would be when you envisioned becoming a parent. Although parenting is challenging, it is also one of the most rewarding jobs you will ever have.

While you may feel caring for a child is too great of a financial burden, there are resources to support you on this journey.

Community resources can include:

  • Childcare assistance during work or school
  • Free formula and diapers
  • Support groups
  • Parenting education

These resources can provide you with financial and emotional support as you enter parenthood, allowing you to continue to grow and work toward accomplishing your career, schooling, and financial goals.
