Unintended pregnancy

Unintended pregnancy continues to be a common and difficult experience for women in Canada. It is a situation that each woman must face according to her own unique circumstances. You may find it helpful to discuss the options, including abortion or adoption, with a physician, public health professional, health clinic or family member you can count on for non-judgmental listening and support.

Access to unbiased counseling and services is important. The Canadian Federation for Sexual Health maintains a list of member organizations, such as Planned Parenthood, which can provide counselling services throughout the country.
