3 Things Needed Before Abortion

Your choice of the outcome of your pregnancy is a serious decision and requires careful consideration. If you are considering abortion to end your unexpected pregnancy, you need a medical-grade pregnancy test, limited ultrasound, and options consultation.

Pregnancy Test

Maybe you have had unprotected sex and are now having pregnancy symptoms, but did you know that many pregnancy symptoms can have other causes? Even the stress of thinking that you may be pregnant can lead to nausea or a missed period. Women cannot rely on pregnancy symptoms to diagnose pregnancy.

Have you already taken a pregnancy test at home and don’t see the value in confirming your test results? While at-home pregnancy tests vary in reliability, user error is not as uncommon as you might think. Using too much urine on the test strip or reading the test at the wrong time can cause false positives.

Women deserve three things before deciding to get an abortion.

Obtain free, medical-grade pregnancy testing at Choices Pregnancy Center. Our highly accurate pregnancy tests, confirmed by our nurse, will give you the reliable results you need to proceed with your next step… ultrasound.


An ultrasound is a simple diagnostic test used before an abortion to provide three specific pieces of information about the pregnancy to protect a woman’s health and safety.

  • Viability: Because a woman can test positive for pregnancy for weeks after she experiences a miscarriage, pregnancy testing alone cannot be used to confirm a pregnancy. Studies show up to 20% of pregnancies naturally end in a miscarriage. If your pregnancy is not growing with a heartbeat, an abortion may be an unnecessary medical procedure.
  • Date: Abortion options vary partly due to how far along the pregnancy is. For example, a medical abortion, or the “abortion pill,” is only approved for pregnancies under 10 weeks.
  • Location: Abortion does not resolve ectopic pregnancy, a life-threatening condition that occurs when an embryo implants in a woman’s body somewhere other than the uterus.

Free ultrasounds are available at Choices Pregnancy Center.

 Options Consultation

When faced with an unexpected pregnancy, it may feel like you don’t have any choice. But when it comes to the outcome of your pregnancy, you owe it to yourself to understand the available options.

Feeling pressured into an abortion is a risk factor for post-abortion mental health struggles. An options consultation with Choices Pregnancy Center can help you understand your options, including abortion. Get the facts you need to make an empowered decision.
