How to Deal with an Unplanned Pregnancy If Abortion Isn’t for You

How to Deal with an Unplanned Pregnancy If Abortion Isn’t for You:

If you are not sure whether abortion is right for you, then there are other options available. These include adoption or parenting. While these things may seem like a better option than getting an abortion, they aren’t necessarily better choices either. They all have their pros and cons and each one will require its own consideration.

Adoption:

The main reason why people adopt is because they feel like they would be missing out on something if they didn’t have children. Adopting someone else’s child is a great way to make up for having missed out on having your own. However, adopting a child from another family isn’t always easy especially when you’re not familiar with them personally. There are also some issues related to being adopted into a new household.

It is true that adoption can give you a second chance at life. But it doesn’t mean that you won’t miss the person you had before. Some of us just need time to adjust to our new lives and sometimes it takes longer than others. For those who decide against adopting, there are still other ways of making up for lost time such as fostering or even giving birth yourself!

Fostering:

There are a lot of children out there who need your help, which is why some people decide to become a foster parent. Foster children often come from broken homes or have parents that abuse them and as a result have to stay with a family until the courts figure out where to place them permanently.

Essentially, you would provide the child with a temporary home until they can be placed with a long-term family. This might mean providing them with all the things they need to succeed in life such as food, shelter, and love. It isn’t an easy job by any means, but it is rewarding to know that you saved a child’s life.

As mentioned above, parenting can be a very rewarding experience, even if it isn’t your own flesh and blood. Whether you’re raising your own children or someone else’s, remember that you can always learn something from them. The key to being a good parent is to be patient and to listen.

Giving Birth:

There are still some people out there that prefer to have their own kids. If you are one of these people, then more power to you! There are many ways in which you can try to get pregnant. If you are married or in a long-term relationship then the easiest way is probably the old-fashioned way.

Of course, there are some people that might need a little help from a medical professional and that’s okay too. These people might be a little more fertile than others so there’s a higher chance of getting pregnant. If neither of these methods work after a few months, then it might be time to see a doctor about artificial insemination or other fertility treatments.

Regardless of what you decide, remember that you still have a lot of time. Don’t worry too much about it for now and just try to enjoy your youth while you can.

Well, that’s all the major choices out of the way. Now you can focus more on enjoying your senior year of high school. But remember, there will always be more choices and more consequences. You can’t foresee everything that will happen in life so you have to try your best to adapt to each situation as they come.

And who knows?

You might even live happily ever after.

***You have completed the High School Simulator!***

You reached the “Good Ending”

Congratulations!

Video Game High School: The Game has been successfully saved.

You can now restart the story with three unique options that were unavailable to you before.

The first option is a risk and reward scenario. If you choose this option then a new option will be unlocked.

You can restart the story with an EDGAR Employee at your side. While this seems like an appealing idea, it is very dangerous. Should you choose this route, the EDGAR employee will accompany you through the rest of the story. However, this also means that you cannot switch control to any other characters. Choose wisely.

Use the “EDGAR” option to continue.

You’ve defeated Kane and saved the day, now it’s time to rest. Unfortunately, there aren’t many jobs out there for a washed up gamer so if you can’t get a job then your story might as well come to an end. Try to get a job before the money runs out.

Use the “No Job” option to continue.

If you think you’re up to the task, then select the “EDGAR” option to continue.

CONGRATULATIONS!

You’ve unlocked Nathan. Now you can control him in addition to Simon, Jett, and Apple.

Use the Nathan option to continue.

If you decide that you would like to play as all of the characters again then select the “Do a Quick Run” option.

You have reached the “Bad Ending”.

It seems that you just weren’t meant to make it in today’s world. The game will now shut off as there is nothing left for you.

Use the Power button to turn off the console.
