Wait! Before You Get An Abortion, Make Sure You're Actually Pregnant.
Wait! Before You Get An Abortion, Make Sure You’re Actually Pregnant.

You may not be pregnant. “No way.  I’ve taken 4 pregnancy tests and they were all positive. How can I not be pregnant?” False positives do happen. “But I thought pregnancy tests were 99% accurate.” Most pregnancy tests are 99% accurate – when used in a laboratory setting by a trained technician. That accuracy decreases […]

Abortion Assistance: Do You Know the Answer to These 3 Questions?

You may find yourself in an unplanned pregnancy and considering abortion. There are 3 important pieces of information that you need to have before you can make a decision about that pregnancy and what kind of abortion you are eligible for.

 

Question #1: Are Your Really Pregnant?

The first bit of information that you need to know is if you’re really pregnant. 31% of pregnancies end on their own before 8 weeks. Here in our office, we will give you a clinical pregnancy test to determine if you are really pregnant.

Question #2: How Far Along Are You?

The second piece of information you need is to know how far along you are. The cost and the type of abortion procedure you would be eligible for are greatly affected by how far along your pregnancy is. The only sure way to know that is to do an ultrasound. Here in our office, we would do an ultrasound to determine the gestational age of your pregnancy.

Question #3: Do You Have an STD?

The third piece of information that’s very important is that you need to know if you have an STD. Having an abortion with an untreated STD can cause great risk to your future reproductive health, and we want to help protect that.

Being pregnant when you didn’t intend to is overwhelming and brings with it a lot of questions. The partiality of abortion clinics, personal doubts, and political arguments about abortion don’t have to cloud your judgement. You can have the confidence to make an educated, informed choice about this pregnancy. The choice is yours, but you don’t have to make it alone.

What is Informed Consent?

“Every state requires that a patient consent before undergoing medical treatment and that the consent be ‘informed,’”1 yet only 35 states require that women receive counseling before an abortion is performed. This does not excuse your healthcare provider from fulfilling their responsibilities to communicate all possible short- and long-term side-effects of each treatment option. Your […]
