For Those Who Are Not Ready to Go the Abortion Route
Crisis Pregnancy Centers
The crisis pregnancy center locator identifies 2,525 crisis pregnancy centers in the United States; that’s an average of more than 50 per state, so chances are, there is a crisis pregnancy center within accessible distance from you. The site even lists the crisis pregnancy center in my small town, if that makes any difference in credibility to you.
Many crisis pregnancy centers solicit donations from their communities, but they are also subsidized by state and federal tax dollars. For example, in 2018, Care Net received a substantial grant from the United States government to help finance its operations across the country. Because each crisis pregnancy center likely receives tax-payer money, there are rules about how much care a center can provide to each patron and how frequently you may attend.
In a study published in March of 2020, the University of California San Francisco associate professor Katrina Kimport found that most of the women she studied had already decided against abortion before visiting a crisis pregnancy center. If you are not interested in terminating your pregnancy, then a crisis pregnancy center could prove a useful tool as you prepare for your next steps.

The Adoption Option
There are no national statistics on how many people are waiting to adopt, but experts estimate it is somewhere between one and two million couples. Every year there are about 1.3 million abortions. Only 4% of women with unwanted pregnancies place their children through adoption.
What Resources are Available
Being a single mother can be hard on the finances. The government does understand the different situations that a single mom can find herself in. Fortunately, you can find government help for single mothers! There are thousands of state and federal programs out there.
These programs can help with housing, child care, scholarships and tuition for college, job placement, overdue bills and even with credit card debt. However, where do you find these programs and how do you apply for them?
