Considering Abortion? Here’s what you need to know.

Are you really pregnant?

If you are in the Charleston, WV area, make an appointment with us. We will perform a free, lab-quality pregnancy test to determine if you are pregnant. Even if you are experiencing pregnancy symptoms, our lab-quality test provides 99 percent accuracy.

Do You Even Need an Abortion?

Would you want to go through the risk, pain, and cost of an abortion procedure if you didn’t need one? Did you know…an estimated 1 in 4 pregnancies will end naturally in miscarriage (1) (2) (3) (4) (also known as spontaneous abortion)? The technology, in the form of an ultrasound, exists to determine if you might miscarry (and not need an abortion).

We can provide a free obstetrical ultrasound for you. It will provide you with important information including:

  • If your pregnancy is ectopic (outside the womb) which could be life threatening
  • The gestational age
  • Confirmation of a fetal heartbeat

Following the ultrasound, you will have information you need to make an informed choice.

Abortion Risks

Just like any medical procedure, abortion has health risks, including:

  • heavy blood loss
  • infertility
  • damage to your cervix or uterus (which could prevent future pregnancies) (1) (2)
  • infection which can be mild or even life threatening (sepsis)
  • damage to other internal organs
  • death
  • Some studies have shown possible links to breast, cervical, and ovarian cancer. (5) (6) (7) (8)
