On Campus

An unplanned pregnancy in college and high school often creates a personal crisis full of concerns about the future and what might happen next. If you’re enrolled at Penn State, Elizabethtown College, Messiah College, Harrisburg Area Community College (HACC), Lebanon Valley College or any other area university or high school, you have unique concerns as a student. Let Morning Star help you work through the situation and understand your options. Find the support and information you need to make an informed decision about what to do next.

Really Pregnant?

The first and most important thing you can do is determine if you’re really pregnant. Even if you’ve taken a home test, it may not be accurate. Morning Star offers free pregnancy tests that are 99% accurate. The counselors at Morning Star can help you confirm your pregnancy before you make any decisions.

Free Ultrasound

If you have a positive pregnancy test at Morning Star, you may be eligible for a free limited ultrasound. Having an ultrasound allows you to learn more about your pregnancy and its timing and can give you more information to help in making a decision about your pregnancy. If you’re considering abortion, an ultrasound provides information that may determine the abortion procedures available to you.

Many Pregnancies End In Miscarriage

If you’re considering abortion, you should know that even if you have a positive pregnancy test, 20% to 25% of pregnancies end in natural miscarriage. An ultrasound can help determine if your pregnancy is viable or if you’re going to miscarry naturally.

Free STD Testing And Treatment

If you are concerned about STDs, Morning Star is here to help. Our centers provide free, confidential STD testing and treatment. If you’re considering abortion as a solution to an unplanned pregnancy, it’s important to be tested for STDs before making a decision. Women who undergo an abortion with an untreated STD are up to 25% more likely to develop Pelvic Inflammatory Disease following the abortion procedure, which can lead to serious health issues. Make an appointment to get tested and learn more about reducing your risks of contracting an STD.

Making Decisions

As you make decisions regarding your pregnancy, we understand you have questions:

  • How will I get medical care?
  • How will I finish school?
  • What will my parents say?
  • Will I lose my scholarship?
  • What will happen to me?

Morning Star offers a safe place to find the answers you’re looking for. Make an appointment to talk with one of our counselors today. At Morning Star, you can make a plan that works for your life. All our services are free and confidential, even if you are a minor under 18 years old.

Thinking About Abortion?

Every year, our center sees women from high school and college campuses in the Harrisburg area who are considering abortion as a solution to an unplanned pregnancy. If you’re thinking about visiting an abortion clinic in the Harrisburg area, you should know your rights and be fully informed about abortion. Make an appointment to talk with Morning Star about abortion procedures and risks.

 

Feeling Pressure?

You Should Know: A coerced abortion is illegal under Pennsylvania law.

An unplanned pregnancy in college or high school might bring added pressure from a partner or boyfriend who is worried about his own future or a parent who had different plans for you. If you’re feeling pressured by someone else to have an abortion and want someone to talk to, make an appointment to speak with one of our counselors. Your situation is unique, but you’re not alone. We’ll help you understand your legal rights, so you can make the decision that’s right for you.
