Even if you are in foster care, you still have the same right to choose what to do with a pregnancy as any other teen.  That means if you are pregnant, you can choose whether you want to:

  • get an abortion
  • continue a pregnancy
  • or set up an adoption.

No one can make this choice for you or force you to make a certain choice.  That includes your social worker,  your group home, your foster caregiver, your parents or even a judge.

You also have the right to go to the health care provider of your choice.  If you feel like you aren’t being given a choice or your rights are being violated, contact us or contact your lawyer or social worker.
