Editor's Comment

You have 2 options: you can end the pregnancy with either a surgical abortion or a late medical abortion, or you can think about an adoption plan where you place the baby with new parents. It depends where you live as to how you access these different options. look on the website for information, and call the helpline to talk this through with someone 0300 4000 999, for unplanned pregnancy support.
