We care about you and your health. You deserve to make an informed choice. So what are your options?
You may have many questions……How many weeks pregnant am I? What kind of abortions are there? What are the risks, physical and emotional? How many doctor visits will it take? How is it done? Am I really even pregnant? What if I have an STD? These questions are real concerns….and we can help you answer these questions.
There are different types of abortions: RU-486/Abortion Pills; Suction Curettage (4-13 weeks); Dilation and Evacuation (13-24 weeks); Late Term Abortion (24 weeks and up). We can tell you all about these procedures, their potential side effects, and their risks.
No one can force you to have an abortion, even if you are a minor. To learn more about all of your rights as a patient, contact us.
What about STDs? Unrecognized STDs, such as Chlamydia and Gonorrhea, and infections such as Bacterial Vaginosis can spread during a surgical abortion leading to major complications including PID which can cause infertility. We can test you for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea as well as Bacterial Vaginosis. If you are considering abortion, don’t gamble with your future, you need to be tested, even if you don’t have symptoms.
Adoption may not be the first thought in your mind if you face an unplanned pregnancy. However, you may be pleased to know that you may select the parents who will raise your child and that you may have some level of ongoing relationship with your child, if you wish. Developing an adoption plan empowers you to create a positive future for yourself and your child. Each year thousands of women in America make this choice. This loving decision is often made by women who first thought abortion was their only way out.*
Choosing to parent can feel overwhelming at first. There is so much to consider, but we are here to help you through each step. We can give you verification of pregnancy for Medicaid and WIC. We offer classes during your pregnancy in which you can earn baby items while learning about pregnancy, childbirth, and parenting. There are many resources available to you, so let us help you be successful in your choice to parent.
Because we don’t perform abortions, refer for abortions, or arrange adoptions, we are not financially interested in your decision.
