Can I Get an Abortion Today?

You just found out you’re pregnant and no doubt you want to put this situation behind you—as soon as possible and as privately as possible. “Where can I get an abortion right now?”

First, take a deep breath and know that you actually don’t have to do anything today. You’re already in the process of taking the right steps by being here, searching for your best solution. Rest assured, you are taking action and you are in control.

Unfortunately, this is not going to be over today. Surgical abortions cannot be scheduled the same day, and while it may be possible to schedule a last-minute exam for a medical abortion today, it could still take up to two weeks for the pills to actually end your pregnancy.

The point is, you have time. Take these first moments to gather your wits and more information. Are you positive you’re pregnant? Do you know how far along you are? Do you know what your options are? Do you have an STD that might complicate things?

CompassCare provides totally free, same and next day pregnancy testing, ultrasounds, and STD testing. Let us lay out your options and answer all of your questions in a safe, nonjudgmental environment.
