CompassCare

or Planned Parenthood?

Why Choose CompassCare instead of Planned Parenthood?

CompassCare Provides Free Pre-termination Evaluations

Every woman facing unplanned pregnancy needs a medical intervention to answer three questions before a final pregnancy outcome can be determined:

  1. Am I really pregnant?  1 in 5 pregnancies end on their own, most often before 7 weeks.1
  2. How far along am I?  Gestational age determines the cost & type of abortion you could be eligible for.
  3. Do I have an STD?  Having an abortion with an untreated STD could lead to serious risk for your reproductive health and any future pregnancies.2

CompassCare can confirm whether or not you are truly pregnant, how far along you are, and if your pregnancy is viable with a free ultrasound. Free STD testing and treatment is also provided to protect your future reproductive health.

CompassCare is Committed to Care for You as a Whole Person

CompassCare adheres to the principles of traditional medical ethics, which are found in the relationship between patient and doctor. True ethical medicine ensures that you and your health are the primary focus of that relationship. Our ethical standards are outlined here. [If you’re into the philosophy, we’re committed to the Pregnancy Resource Center Code of Conduct developed by the Commission for Reproductive Health Service Standards.] These accepted medical principals are why the nurses at CompassCare are dedicated to your total care, both mind and body.

CompassCare is Objective and Will Not Judge You

CompassCare is a non-profit organization and is not dependent on funds generated by patient medical insurance to keep its doors open. Because of this, we can provide truly unbiased information and one-on-one, personal, compassionate care and support. CompassCare exists to help you make an informed decision based on facts about pregnancy, parenting, abortion and adoption. Pregnancy decisions are too important to leave your experience to a rushed, clinical conversation and a waiting room where you feel like a number. CompassCare Will Empower You, Not Pressure You.

84% of American women who had abortions said that they did not receive adequate counseling beforehand. 64% felt pressured by others.3 Abortionists only profit from one of your pregnancy options, and are incentivized to make abortion seem like the best choice.

At CompassCare, our purpose is your health. Our patients are empowered to make the choice that’s right for them. At CompassCare we understand that having the baby is the most difficult choice. If you are not empowered to make the most difficult choice, you are not truly free to choose. And it shows in the results.
