UNWANTED PREGNANCY(ABORTION)

It is appropriately said that every child should be a wanted child. Sometimes a pregnancy may not be wanted. In this case one may seek an abortion. Abortion is legal provided it is carried out within the legal permits. An abortion can be done only up to 20 weeks of pregnancy

Under the terms of the abortion act, doctors can agree to an abortion if they believe one or more of the following:
  • Continuing with the pregnancy would involve more risk to your physical or mental health than terminating it.
  • Continuing with the pregnancy would involve greater risk to your life than terminating it.
  • Any existing children of yours were likely to suffer if the pregnancy continued.
  • There is a substantial risk that the child would be deformed or seriously handicapped.
  • In our teenage counseling program, we conduct an informative counseling session in an open-friendly atmosphere. The young girl is informed about the normal body anatomy, physiology and the menstrual hygiene. Healthy habits regarding diet & exercise are promoted. Young girls have many misconceptions and myths regarding menstruation. Some of the common ones are questions like why one cannot go to the temple during periods and why should one not swim during periods? We address these whilst respecting the social/religious sentiments. Puberty & menarche are important milestones in a girl’s life. It is now the time to prepare her for womanhood. Sexual education is important subject and needs to be handled well. Professional expertise is valuable in addition to the role of parents, teachers & peer educators. In our counseling sessions we provide information on various issues such as how one gets pregnant, how to prevent pregnancy, what are sexually transmitted infections, and safe sex.
