FREE PRE-ABORTION SCREENINGS – if you are considering abortion as your first option, our pre-abortion screening will equip you to make an informed decision. Our screenings include the following:

A Lab Quality Pregnancy Test

No more worrying if that over-the-counter test is accurate. You can know with great confidence if you’re pregnant by having one of our professional staff perform your pregnancy test using the highest quality tests available.

A Limited Ultrasound

This test performed by our licensed medical staff, paired with our lab-quality pregnancy testing, is the best way to know if you’re pregnant and also if your pregnancy is viable. This scan allows us to evaluate how far along you are in your pregnancy and if it looks like it is progressing normally. According to March of Dimes, “As many as half of all pregnancies may end in miscarriage.” An ultrasound will help you know if an abortion is even necessary, as well as what type of abortion you would need.

STI/STD Education & Referrals

If you desire to protect your future, it is important to know more about STIs/STDs when you’re looking to schedule an abortion procedure. Without proper care and treatment of STDs prior to an abortion, your future health could be at risk.
