Thinking About Abortion?
You are unexpectedly pregnant. You might be thinking about scheduling an abortion. Before you do, take time to learn about your options and what to expect next.
If a baby is not in your plans right now, abortion might seem like the best way out. Many women and their partners find it empowering to understand all their options before making a final decision. If you have a viable pregnancy you have three choices to consider.
It is important to make an informed choice. Whatever you are considering, we are here to listen, and help you make a decision based on knowledge and not fear. Our trained staff has helped thousands of women to make personalized plans for their unplanned pregnancies since 1987.
Before making a pregnancy decision, you will need to know first if you really are pregnant and how far along the pregnancy has developed. A pregnancy test indicates a rising level of hCG in your body. But it does not tell if that pregnancy will continue.
An ultrasound exam is the most reliable way to confirm a pregnancy after the pregnancy test and will help you make a fully informed choice.
Your first step should be to schedule your no-cost appointment for medical pregnancy testing at Choices. After a positive test in our lab, our medical staff will determine if you are eligible for an ultrasound exam to confirm your pregnancy.
If your test is positive and you are considering abortion, we will help you understand the various abortion procedures and the effects on everyone involved; emotional and physical. An abortion is not just a simple medical procedure. For many women, it is a life changing event with significant physical, emotional, and spiritual consequences. Most women who struggle with past abortions say that they wish they would have had more knowledge about abortion and how it would affect them.
Before deciding that abortion is the right choice for you, it is important to ask yourself the following questions:
- Have I researched all my options?
- Do I understand the potential risks involved with abortion?
- Have I discussed my situation with someone I can trust?
- Have I had an ultrasound to determine viability and how far along I am?
- Do I fully understand the type of abortion procedure I would need?
- Does the abortion physician performing my procedure have admitting privileges to a local hospital?
At Choices, we can talk with you, answer your questions, and help you process your thoughts and desires so that you are able to make a fully informed choice. Because we do not financially benefit from your decision we can discuss your options with absolutely no pressure.
Your set of circumstances is unique to you. Our desire is for you to leave our clinic feeling empowered to make the best choice regarding your pregnancy.
