Abortion Information Consultation

Abortion is a major decision.

Women consider abortion for many different reasons. You have the power to make the best decision for you, but it is important to know about abortion risks and procedures. At A Caring Place Pregnancy Help Center, we encourage you to learn about all of your options, including abortion. We will help you understand  the different procedures and what you can expect. Gather your questions and make an appointment today.

Abortion is a medical procedure.

There are several different types of abortions. Abortion procedures include the abortion pill and surgical abortions, which are more invasive.

If you think you might be pregnant, we can provide you with an on-site pregnancy test at no cost to you. If the pregnancy test is positive, we will provide an ultrasound that will determine how far along you are and if your pregnancy is viable. While A Caring Place does not perform nor refer for abortion, if you are considering terminating your pregnancy, our medical staff can help you understand each abortion procedure and answer any questions you may have. You can book a free appointment here.

 

If I want an abortion

Get the abortion clinic's doctor's name that will be performing the abortion.
Abortion is legal in the United States, but bad medical care is not. Women have died as a result of their “safe and legal” abortions. Some women have suffered complications to the point they are unable to have children in the future. If you don’t know the doctor’s name performing your abortion, you may not find out. The abortion provider could be counting on you not holding him/her accountable should there be complications because many women shy away from letting anyone know about this choice afterwards. Ask for the doctor’s name and write it down.
Do not sign anything that releases the doctor or the abortion clinic from being responsible for complications that may occur during the abortion procedure.
Many women have said they were so caught up in the emotion of the day that they signed anything put in front of them in order to “be done and have it over with.” If the abortion clinic asks you to sign anything, take your time to read it over. If you don’t understand something, ask questions. If you don’t understand their answers, ask for clarification. Do not be in a rush because anything you sign could affect you in the future. You can always reschedule your appointment for a later date.
Understand you have rights in an abortion.
It is against the law for anyone to force you to have an abortion. Not even a husband or parent can require you to undergo an abortion against your will, even if you are a minor (under 18 years old). Your local pregnancy care center exists to help you in any circumstance. They can help you discuss this choice with those closest to you that are influencing your decision. The law in many states also requires abortion providers to give you information on: 1) possible complications, 2) fetal development, and 3) organizations that provide alternatives to abortion.
