Why do I need an ultrasound…
Know the facts about your body…
Did you know that Planned Parenthood requires two things before you can get an abortion there?
And that you can get them at Support Circle for FREE?
For women seeking an abortion, Planned Parenthood requires:
1. An official verification of pregnancy
2. A dating of the pregnancy’s gestational age
You must have these two things before you can obtain an abortion.
Why do I need an ultrasound?
An ultrasound helps to determine if you actually need an abortion. You may not need an abortion for several reasons, such as if you have an ectopic pregnancy, or if the fetus is not viable (and you will soon experience a miscarriage).
Know the facts about your body.
An ultrasound at Support Circle will also provide you with an official verification and dating of your pregnancy if you are at least 6 weeks along.
How much does an abortion cost?
Abortion services may be available at no cost through Medi-Cal. If you do not qualify for Medi-Cal or have medical insurance that covers abortion, you may be required to pay out-of-pocket. The approximate cost of abortion ranges from $500 – $2,500 in the Oakland area.
Abortion rates will vary depending on the clinic and provider you select and how far along you are in your pregnancy. A free ultrasound at our Oakland clinic can help to date your pregnancy.
