Before an abortion, we recommend a pre-abortion screening. A viable pregnancy can be confirmed through lab grade pregnancy testing and ultrasound. Statistically, one in five pregnancies will end in a natural miscarriage. An ultrasound will provide evidence-based confirmation and dating of your pregnancy. Once the pregnancy is confirmed viable, then it is very important to rule out the possibility of an active STD (sexually transmitted disease). Please see additional information under STD Testing and Treatment.
The nurses and advocates at LifeTalk Resource Center are available to discuss with you any questions you may have regarding having an abortion, as well as abortion procedures and risks associated with abortion. It’s important for you to determine what is best for you, now and in the future. We will provide you with information about pregnancy, abortion as well as other related health issues. To speak to someone, anytime, please feel free to call or schedule an appointment at our center. We provide several confidential services and ensure that you have sufficient education to make the right decision for you and your pregnancy. Please note, however, that LifeTalk Resource Center does not refer for, provide, or perform abortions.
There are different abortion procedures for different stages of pregnancy and each of these have their own risks.
Please contact us to learn more about the procedures and the risks of each.
