When considering an abortion, your health and safety is important to us. We are here to help you sort through all of your questions and concerns. You can make your own, informed decision. Call us to schedule your free and confidential consultation regarding pregnancy and your options.
Here are 3 important pieces of information you need to have before making a decision about an abortion or the abortion pill.
ARE YOU PREGNANT
This is always the first question to ask. During your consultation, you will meet with a nurse who will provide a pregnancy test and verify the results of the test. Based on your results and situation, a free ultrasound may be offered to confirm an intrauterine pregnancy and determine your estimated due date. Our nurse will visit with you on a more personal basis, one-on-one, and look at your particular situation and health factors.
Medical services are provided by licensed medical personnel.
MAKING AN INFORMED CHOICE
There are risks associated with abortion, just as there are with any other medical procedure, it is essential to take the time to do some research before you make your final decision. Gaining knowledge will empower you to make your own informed choice.
LASTING EFFECTS OF ABORTION
An abortion is a medical procedure that cannot be undone. There are different abortion procedures depending on how far along you are in this pregnancy. Each procedure has physical, psychological and emotional risks. We can provide information regarding abortion procedures and risks.
Remember, it is a woman’s right to be fully informed by her doctor prior to an abortion or any other procedure. A woman should be encouraged to ask questions.
For women who need emotional support after an abortion, we have trained personnel who can help.

THE EMOTIONAL SIDE OF ABORTION
Women report a range of emotions after an abortion. This can include:
- Thoughts of Suicide
- Feelings of Grief
- Lowered Self-Esteem
- Sexual Dysfunction
- Avoidance of Emotional Attachment
- Substance Abuse
For some women, these emotions may appear immediately after an abortion or gradually over a longer period of time.
Talking with someone before you make a decision to have an abortion is very important. If family help and support are not available to you, talking with a spiritual or professional counselor before having an abortion can help you better understand your decision. At Hope Pregnancy Center, our advocates are available to listen and talk with you.
Our center offers evidence-based information about all pregnancy options. Hope Pregnancy Center does not offer abortion services or abortion referrals.
If you’re not thinking about abortion, we would love to walk with you through pregnancy and parenting as well. See your options.
