Abortion is a serious medical procedure, so it is important that you know the facts associated with abortion and its varying types of procedures. Before you decide on an abortion, it is important that you ask yourself the following questions:

  • Am I eligible for an abortion?
  • Which types of abortion am I eligible for?
  • Are there any short- or long-term risks associated with abortion?

You may also be asking “is abortion still legal?”.  The answer to that question depends on where you live and changes often.

If you are thinking about having an abortion, it is recommended that you speak with someone before making your final choice. That is precisely why we are here.  It is also important for you to know how far along you are as that will determine what procedures are available to you.  This can be determined by ultrasound.*
