Abortion is legal. As such, it is a consideration for many women who are facing an unexpected pregnancy. You have a lot going through your head right now as you try to decide what to do. We understand and can help you make sense of it all.
The Supreme Court has given you the right to choose abortion, and choice assumes that you are fully aware and understand all of your options including abortion alternatives. Our job is to empower you with the information you need to make an informed choice. We offer a safe, quiet place for you to think through your options. Our professional and peer counselors provide information and insight in a warm, friendly atmosphere in which you can thoughtfully consider your options and plan for your future.
Make the best choice for YOU
Maybe you never thought you would be in a situation where you’d have to contemplate abortion and now you need some non-bias and guilt-free support. The more you think about the goals and dreams you had for yourself, the more abortion seems like the ‘lesser of the evils.’ We get what you’re feeling and can help you think through your options.
Abortion is not a word we are afraid to say or talk about, and it’s not intimidating or taboo to us. We just want to equip and support you in making the best choice for your life in a truthful and honest manner. Whatever you choose to do with your body—it’s YOUR choice. We offer free pre-abortion consultations along with free pregnancy tests, free ultrasounds and medically-sourced, up-to-date information about all your options.

Basics on the Abortion Pill & Morning After Pill
Medical Abortion (AKA RU-486 or the Abortion pill)
This is a two-step process in which Mifepristone is given orally during the first office visit and then Misoprostol is given to be taken 24-48 hours later at home. Women report that what follows is “labor-like” pain with heavy cramping and bleeding.The end result normally occurs at home. As with any medical procedure, there are health risks. A follow-up appointment with the abortion clinic doctor is highly recommended to ensure there are no signs of infection and that a surgery is not needed to complete the abortion. Financial costs for medical abortions have been reported to be between $300 to $800. Costs are higher if there are complications
Morning After Pill (AKA Emergency Contraception or E.C.)
There are different types of morning-after pills, which are not the same as the abortion pill. The Morning After Pill is taken within 72 hours after unprotected sex. The abortion pill is taken after pregnancy is confirmed. It works to: 1) prevent or delay ovulation; 2) prevent fertilization; or 3) prevent implantation after an embryo is fertilized (thereby causing an early abortion). As with any medication, there is a likelihood of complications and side effects. Some side effects include: nausea, abdominal pain, headache, dizziness, vomiting, menstrual changes and abnormal bleeding. The cost ranges from $35 to $65.
