Abortion – Are you considering an abortion?

If you are reading this article, you may be pregnant and considering abortion.  Most women do not come to the decision to abort lightly. Half of pregnancies in America are unintended. It may feel like you are alone and pregnant but many women in the San Francisco Bay Area have experienced an unplanned pregnancy. Approximately 75% of pregnant women know what they want to do with their unplanned pregnancy.  Women who have decided on abortion might seek out Planned Parenthood in Oakland or Women’s Options Center in San Francisco for their abortion clinics.  Women planning to parent might seek out their OB/GYN to begin prenatal care.  Women choosing adoption might seek out adoption agencies in the San Francisco Bay Area.  The other 25% of women in unintended pregnancies are unsure and need a safe place to discuss their pregnancy options.  They are typically looking for:

  • Lab Grade Pregnancy Tests
  • Limited Ultrasound
  • Emotional Support
  • Community Resources and Referrals
  • Nurse Consultation
  • Proof of Pregnancy

Have you confirmed your pregnancy by visiting a medical office, pregnancy clinic, or pregnancy center in the Bay Area? Abortion procedures require a pregnancy verification.  Lab-grade pregnancy tests can be more accurate than home pregnancy tests purchased at your local CVS pharmacy or Walgreens pharmacy. After confirming your pregnancy at a Support Circle Pregnancy Clinic, you may choose to have an ultrasound performed. Why? The pregnancy ultrasound provided at our clinic is able to provide accurate dating of your unplanned pregnancy. This is important because your pregnancy options are determined by how far along in the pregnancy you are. And, a pregnancy ultrasound can go one step further to see if this is an ectopic pregnancy. Ectopic pregnancies are rare, but are serious conditions where treatment is needed to prevent complications.
