If you’ve just discovered you’re pregnant or you think you may be pregnant, then you’re probably thinking about your options.
We encourage you to stop, take a deep breath, and take time to make an informed and responsible decision. Educate yourself about the options you have available to you and your unborn child. If you need help exploring your options, there are resources available at no cost or low cost to you. Note: we do not refer for abortion.
How much does an abortion cost?
It is typical for an abortion to cost anywhere from $300 to $3,000+ out of pocket. This cost range is based upon a number of factors, including stage of pregnancy, type of abortion procedure, geographical region and choice of anesthesia.

Women usually have questions concerning the abortion pill. Taking a pill might seem like a quick solution to an immediate problem, but it is not without risk. We know that there is a lot of differing information out there. If you’re thinking of using the abortion pill or having a medical abortion, we are here to help you make an informed decision.
What is the Abortion Pill?
The Abortion Pill uses two medications, hormones to end a pregnancy. These medications cause changes in the lining of the uterus and cause muscle contractions that expel the pregnancy tissue. The French pharmaceutical company, Roussel-Uclaf, patented the drugs. The company’s initials provide the first part of the drug’s label, so the pill is controversial, called the abortion pill.
Patients will have bleeding and cramping (sometimes heavy bleeding with severe cramping) like those that occur during an early miscarriage.
Abortion Pill Reversal is possible.
If you regret taking the first dose of the abortion pill, you could reverse the effects. Call and ask about Abortion Pill Reversal.

"Generally, elective abortion isn't thought to cause fertility issues or complications in future pregnancies.
Risks to future pregnancies may depend on the type of elective abortion performed:" (1)
Medical abortion. Medication is taken in early pregnancy to abort the fetus. An elective medical abortion doesn't appear to increase the risk of future pregnancy complications, as long as it's done under the guidance of your health care team.
Surgical abortion. This is a surgical procedure to remove the fetus from the uterus through the vagina. The procedure is typically done using suction or an instrument called a curet. While many studies have shown that surgical abortion has limited impact on future pregnancies, a review of multiple studies suggested a link between prior surgical abortion and a slight increased risk of premature birth and low birth weight. Women who have multiple surgical abortions using a curet are at risk of scarring of the inner lining of the uterus (Asherman syndrome). This condition is associated with difficulty in becoming pregnant in the future. (1)
There is competing evidence that abortion may or may not increases the risk of getting breast cancer. That is a discussion between you and your physician and outside the scope of this site.
It is clear having a medical abortion is a major decision with emotional and psychological consequences. If you're considering this procedure, make sure you understand what it entails, side effects, possible risks, complications and alternatives.(2)
Many times women suffer in silence. Fear, guilt and shame often keep women from getting the help they need. If you or someone you know needs support, it can change everything.
