Finding our you are pregnant can be overwhelming, especially when you do not feel you are ready for a baby. We are here for you. Call us to talk about all of your pregnancy options so that you will be fully informed to make a healthy choice.
Some abortion clinics are offering no-cost abortion services in San Antonio and other parts of Texas. Before you accept an offer for a free abortion, here are a few questions to ask yourself and the abortion provider:
1. Am I really pregnant? Pregnancy tests are not 100% accurate. Get your pregnancy confirmed with an ultrasound exam by a medical professional at our center at no cost. Call for an appointment.
2. Do I feel pressured to get an abortion? When you are in a hard place in life, it's normal to want to change your circumstances right away and even fear life will only get worse if you wait. Deciding whether or not to have an abortion is a major decision. Don't rush it. Sleep on your decision, and come talk to the experts at our center who will listen to your questions so you can make the best choice. Also, no one can legally force you to have an abortion, not even your parents. The pregnancy choice you make should be your own voluntary decision.
3. Do I understand the risks of a surgical abortion or abortion pills? Every medical procedure, including abortion, has the risk of complications. You have the legal right to be fully informed of these risks before you give consent for a procedure. You also have the right to: (1) understand the abortion procedures available, (2) take your time to assess potential side effects of each procedure, and (3) learn about other options for your pregnancy. We are able to talk with you about abortion procedures and risks. Give us a call to learn more about abortion procedures and potential risks.
4. Does abortion hurt? Each person has different levels of tolerance for physical pain. The type of procedure and your own ability to cope with pain can greatly vary the amount of discomfort you feel. Pain relief options available during the abortion may include local anesthesia, sedation, and sometimes general anesthesia. Call our center to learn more about abortion procedures.
5. Will I regret having an abortion? Some women experience relief right after an abortion, but some struggle with their decision in the days, months, or years that follow. If you are worried you may regret having an abortion, call our trained and compassionate staff who are ready to help work through your questions so you can make a choice you are proud of.
