Best Practices in Pregnancy Options Education Online Course
Quality pregnancy options education includes providing medically accurate, unbiased, non-judgmental information about abortion, adoption and parenting. Best practices include sharing information about related laws, timing, the decision-making process, pros and cons, health risks, and the range of beliefs about all pregnancy options available.
