Additional Abortion Support
Before your abortion, our expert and caring staff will discuss all of your pregnancy options with you to help you make sure abortion is the best decision for you. We’ll also talk with you about your health history to make sure we’re providing the best care for you.
As of October 1, 2011, the State of Texas requires all women seeking an abortion to have an ultrasound at least 24 hours before the abortion. This means that you will have to schedule more than one appointment in order to meet the State requirements. At your first visit you will have an ultrasound to find out how far along you are in the pregnancy and speak to the doctor who will perform your abortion. If you are within the legal limit and decide to have an abortion, the abortion clinic will schedule your second appointment.
