Giving birth to the baby:  You can raise the baby yourself or have another family member raise the baby, such as your parents or another relative.

Open adoption: You choose your child’s adoptive parents and can chose to be a part of the child’s life.

Closed adoption: An adoption agency finds a suitable couple to raise your child, and you do not need to contact the adoptive parents or child.

Birthright does not provide abortions, but we do offer information about the process and the effects on your health:

Terminating pregnancy is legal in California.  No one can keep you from having an abortion, and no one can force you to have an abortion, even if you are less than 18 years old.

More information can be found on the Information on Abortion page under the”Information” heading.
