All patients receive individualized and/or group professional counseling which include birth control information.
Female counselors, trained in women’s health and crisis intervention will discuss your personal issues and help you come to the best decision for you at this time. Parental or spousal consent is never required. You are assured that your privacy is completely guarded and the physicians and their assistants maintain strict and total confidentiality.
During the counseling session, we will tell you all about the risks, benefits and possible complications of abortion. We make sure that you understand your decision, that your decision is uncoerced; and that you are prepared to have an abortion.
We tell you about the particular clinical procedure, about what you should do after the procedure, and during the recovery period. We also encourage you to think about birth control and provide you with literature describing your birth control options.
