I always smile when I drive past that City of West Chicago sign that says “Where history and progress meet.” It gets me because it seems out of place for West Chicago, but it also captures a true tension—towns in this area have transformed from rural farming communities to members of a large metro area. We have our heritage days and our technology corridors, and West Chicago, like all of us, tries to find its way from the past to the future.
If you’re looking for the abortion pill in West Chicago, you’re also wondering how to reconcile what has happened in the past with how you envisioned the future. To use another Midwestern metaphor: you are at a crossroads. You know where you want to go, but you’ve got to find the way.

If you’re trying to go somewhere and realize you’re lost, one of the first things you need to do is figure out where you actually are. The same reasoning can be applied if you are feeling lost due to an unplanned pregnancy. First, you’ll need to confirm where you’re at—-are you truly pregnant? Avenue Women’s Center provides free medical grade pregnancy tests, accurate just ten days after possible conception. The pregnancy test, of course, lets you know that your home test wasn’t a fluke or a mistake. If the test is positive, some women qualify for a free limited medical ultrasound that would give additional information such as how far along they might be and if the pregnancy is likely to continue. After the scan, some women find out they thought the father was one person, but really it’s someone different; they thought they got pregnant after stopping birth control, but really they got pregnant ON birth control; or they thought they were early enough to take the pill, but they would really need the surgery. It’s important to get all of the information you can.
Once you’ve figured out where you are; now you need to know how to get where you want to go. This will depend on the conditions around you. What is the cost for getting the abortion pill in West Chicago or elsewhere? Can you use insurance coverage for the procedure? What steps will be involved? How can you find a safe clinic? Some women may want to know what it would be like to make an adoption plan, or what support they could receive if they chose to parent.

We also recognize that the true destination you may have in mind is a bright future, a place where you can flourish.
