PREGNANCY SUPPORT

With adequate informed consent, the woman should be informed of the pregnancy support resources in her region, through a regional resource guide.

Possible advantages for the woman

This option will allow for the respect of the will of the woman who often wants to avoid having to experience abortion but feels forced by the pressures, abandonment or even rejection of her entourage (parents; partner, etc.) and by not being informed of the resources or the lack thereof;

This option can give the woman a new relationship that is most enriching;

Additional advantages of a social nature

As depopulation increasingly threatens Canada, this option can give Canada a brand new citizen and preserve the fertility of the woman;

This option can reduce the social costs related to abortion (sterility, breast cancer, etc.).

Pregnancy support resources in the province of Quebec (Canada) are as follows:
