Have you thought about what type of abortion you want to have? There are medical & surgical abortions. As mentioned above, depending on how far along you are in pregnancy will determine which one you will receive. Family Life Center, or your local PRC, can provide more education on both medical & surgical abortion procedures & risks to your health. We can also give you a list of questions to ask your abortion provider to ensure that your personal health & safety are respected. There is a nurse you can speak with who can answer medical questions you may have.
Receiving an accurate pregnancy test & obstetric ultrasound are very important to determine if the abortion is necessary & to help you make an informed decision. Many women who have had an abortion wished they had been more educated about the procedure, risks, & side effects. Family Life Center, or your local PRC, can share this medical based evidence with you! We also recommend downloading the free App, "Before You Decide," from your App Store or Playstore. On the App, choose "Abort," "Get the Facts," "Abortion or Baby," "You Decide." Another helpful website is athomeabortionfacts.com so you can be well informed about the abortion pill. If you have taken the first abortion pill, it can be reversed before taking the 2nd drug called "misoprostol." Make sure to call 877-558-0333, or go to abortionpillreversal.com if you have regrets.
Family Life Center, or your local PRC, is here for you in this time of uncertainty. Please reach out & take advantage of our free services. We also offer assistance with items you may need & education on adoption & parenting. We also offer post-abortion counseling if you do choose abortion. Come to a place where you are heard, informed, & valued.
