When you have an unplanned pregnancy, numerous challenges can present themselves. And if you’re a minor, you may wonder what rights you have.
In Kentucky, abortion is illegal. If a minor wants an abortion, she must obtain parental consent in most cases.
But if your parents want you to have an abortion, know that you have rights. No one can force you to make a pregnancy decision if you feel uncomfortable. And if you’re in an abusive situation, you can find 24/7 support by contacting the National Domestic Violence Hotline.
I’m Pregnant. What Should I Do?
Navigating an unplanned pregnancy as a teenager or young adult can be difficult. You may face criticism and judgment from friends or family members. Your partner may or may not be supportive. And it can be challenging to complete your education.
But support is available. Once you’ve confirmed your pregnancy, receiving an ultrasound is crucial. New Hope Center offers free and confidential limited ultrasounds to verify key details, including viability, gestational age, and location.
We also provide information on all three pregnancy options: abortion, adoption, and parenting. You deserve to be educated on the side effects and risks of abortion procedures, as well as weigh the pros and cons of adoption and parenting.
All services are offered in a non-judgmental environment. And if you choose parenting, we’ll provide resources like parenting classes to help you be the best one possible.
An unplanned pregnancy doesn’t mean you don’t have options. We’ll help you find clarity and empower you to make an informed decision.
