We are committed to providing care, no matter what. As part of your appointment, you will speak with a health professional about your medical information, all your options, and will be able to ask questions. Your medical history will be reviewed at your appointment. Be aware that certain medications and medical conditions may not allow for a medication abortion.

Mandatory State Counseling

Pennsylvania law requires that you speak with a doctor before having an abortion. Our patients meet this requirement by speaking with our doctor on a scheduled phone call. You must call into a teleconference to complete this call.

To complete the call: Dial 877-465-1205 at your scheduled start time. Dialing 5 minutes late will not let you in on the call. The call lasts about 45-60 minutes. You will listen to a speech for about 20 minutes, then you’ll be on hold while the doctor checks in with each patient on the line one by one. Wait until the doctor comes back on the line with you to privately confirm your appointment information. Do not hang up until you speak with the doctor one-on-one; otherwise the call will not be considered complete and your appointment will be canceled.
