Partnership for Families, Children and Adults
An individual who seeks counseling at this agency in regard to pregnancy may share concerns, feelings and thoughts about the situation, just as in the case of a person who comes to the agency for counseling in any area of personal or family concern. In all areas of counseling, the partnership is non-judgmental.
When individuals request information regarding resources for termination of pregnancy, it is suggested that they consult their private physicians and/or the local health department.
