Unexpected Pregnancy Options in Oklahoma

By Madeline McRae

Knowing your options when you are greeted with an unexpected pregnancy can be crucial to choosing a decision right for you. The main three options you can expect would be parenting, adoption, and termination of the pregnancy. Whatever option you choose, it’s important to remember to have loved ones and professionals you can lean on to help you through the process.


Your first option can always be parenting the child and being in charge of the child’s life. Maybe you have always wished to be a parent, and having this happen to you could be a blessing in disguise. Although, assuming that the pregnancy is unexpected, It could be best to make sure that you are prepared to have a child in your life. Make sure you are financially and have enough space and love to incorporate the child into your life. 

Termination of Pregnancy

Another option would be termination. Now, regarding Roe vs. Wade being overturned, some states have outlawed termination, one of the states being Oklahoma, so sadly, termination would not be an option. Oklahoma has begun to enforce two criminal bans. Some states (for example, the West Coast, New York, Minnesota, Illinois, New York, and two other Northern states) have expanded access to help other women who need termination but cannot get one. If you are able to go to one of these states, they will be able to help you if need be.

Choosing Adoption for Your Baby

Adoption is also an option. Adoption Choices of Oklahoma  would be the place to go to get more information on what kind of adoption you would want to go with. Setting up an adoption plan is crucial in figuring out what you want for the child’s future. Either closed, semi-closed, or open, depending on how transparent you would want to be during the process. Any agencies in Oklahoma will have people that will guide you through any questions or concerns you might have. Throughout the process, you will encounter paperwork, and the staff will help you find the perfect family you want the child to have for their future, whether it be family size, pets or none, or the type of parenting style and environment you wish to have.
