Abortion Consultation & Testing

Here are 5 important pieces of information you need to have before making a decision about an abortion or the abortion pill.

1. Emotional Risks Involved with 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 medical and psychological or emotional risks. We can provide information regarding abortion procedures and risks. Also, for women who need emotional support after an abortion, we have trained personnel who can help.
2. Is Your Pregnancy Viable?
If you are pregnant, the next thing you need to know is if your pregnancy is viable. A free limited OB ultrasound can determine:

  • If your pregnancy is a potentially life-threatening tubal pregnancy.
  • The approximate age of your pregnancy.
  • Does the fetus have a heartbeat?
  • How developed is the fetus?
  • If your pregnancy is capable of developing under normal conditions.

Approximately 15 to 20% of pregnancies end naturally in miscarriage. Most occur in the first 13 weeks of pregnancy.

3. Pros & Cons of Your Decision
You have a legal right to choose the outcome of your pregnancy. However, considering an abortion may be personal and difficult. Our staff and volunteers are specifically trained to provide you with confidential help and can answer your questions regarding the type or nature of abortion procedures.
4. Do You Have a Sexual Disease?
Having an STD (Sexually Transmitted Disease) at the time you get an abortion can cause PID (Pelvic Inflammatory Disease) and lead to future reproductive health problems, including infertility. Hope Pregnancy Center offers free and confidential STD education and referrals for testing and treatment.
5. Are You Really Pregnant?
It’s very common for women to mistake perfectly normal symptoms and conditions for signs of pregnancy. Our center can help you determine whether or not you’re really pregnant with a free, confidential pregnancy test and limited OB ultrasound. A positive test (including a home test) is an indication of pregnancy, but not a confirmation. The test result should be confirmed by an OB ultrasound exam. This allows us to see whether you’re pregnant and how far along you are, which determines what pregnancy and abortion options are available to you.

We understand that your choice of whether or not to continue your pregnancy can be a very difficult decision for you to make. In fact, it will probably be one of the most important decisions you will ever make. You don’t have to go through it alone. We are here for you.
