considering abortion?

If your pregnancy is unexpected or you're experiencing difficult circumstances during your pregnancy, you may be considering abortion. There are two main ways women choose to terminate their pregnancy. The first abortion method is with abortion-inducing drugs called mifepristone and misoprostol. The second abortion method is an in-clinic surgical procedure - methods vary by trimester and provider. We're here to answer your questions about abortion and pregnancy options. All consultations are provided at no cost to you.

Medication Abortion | The Abortion Pill

The abortion pill is an early abortion option for those who are considering terminating their pregnancy. It is FDA-approved up through 10 weeks after a woman's last menstrual period. Questions about at-home abortion? We provide information on side effects, what to expect, and more.

Surgical abortion information

If you are more than 10 weeks pregnant, do not qualify for the abortion pill, and are considering a surgical abortion procedure, we can provide answers about the most common clinic procedures, what to expect, recovery, and more. Like any surgery, take the time you need to ask questions, discuss your health history, and get the information you need to make an empowered choice.
