Thinking about abortion?
It’s important to remember that abortion is a medical procedure. What types are available? What are the risks? You owe it to yourself to get all the facts so you can make an informed choice.
You may feel uncertain about this decision, and you’re not alone. If you’re considering abortion, we can help you get the answers to questions like these:
- Am I really pregnant?
- How far along am I?
- What if the father of the baby or my friends want me to have an abortion?
- What if I don’t think I’m ready to be a parent?
- What if I’m afraid to tell anyone I’m pregnant?
- Do I have a viable pregnancy? Am I at risk for natural miscarriage? Do I have any conditions requiring immediate medical attention?
Before you decide on abortion services, please request an appointment for free pregnancy testing. If the test is positive, the pregnancy should be confirmed by a free ultrasound exam to ensure there is a viable, intrauterine pregnancy.
