"I DON'T WANT TO BE PREGNANT."
Pregnancy is overwhelming for anyone, but some of us are more vulnerable emotionally and physically when we’re pregnant. We want to meet you just where you are. Though we don’t perform or refer abortions, we provide education and compassionate care regarding abortion. We’re here to listen and care.
YOUR NEXT STEPS
Regardless of whether you want to be pregnant or not, there are medically essential next steps that must be taken for your health.
Confirmed pregnancy. First, through medical grade pregnancy tests. Second, through ultrasound technology. Taking the abortion pill if you’re not pregnant is both unnecessary and potentially harmful.
Confirmed location of pregnancy. If your pregnancy isn’t located within the uterus, this is called an ectopic pregnancy. It’s important that you receive proper medical attention.
Confirmed duration of the pregnancy. Estimates based on your last known menstrual period (LMP) can be inaccurate. It’s essential that you receive an ultrasound in order to provide accurate measurements. This is necessary for you to get the care you need.
ABORTION PROCEDURES* | CHEMICAL VS. SURGICAL
Chemical abortions use medications to end a pregnancy in its early stages.This method doesn’t require anesthesia or surgery. A surgical abortion may be needed if the medications are ineffective.
Surgical abortion is the removal of the fetus and placenta from the uterus through a surgical procedure. The exact method used can vary depending on how many weeks you have been pregnant. Anesthesia may or may not be used. The decision for this is usually determined by the cost and what the patient is able to pay.

ONLINE ABORTION | CONSIDERATIONS
Before you order the abortion pill online, we encourage you to pause and consider the following:
- Misdated pregnancy based only on LMP.
- Missed diagnosis of an ectopic pregnancy.
- Potentially aborting a miscarriage.
- Multiple gestations; being pregnant with twins increases your risk of complications.
- Risk of Rh sensitization, which affects your blood and could affect future pregnancies.
