“I Don’t Support Surgical Abortion, But I’m Open to Trying the Abortion Pill”

Are you unexpectedly pregnant and leaning towards having an abortion?  Perhaps, for any number of reasons, you feel unable or reluctant to continue the pregnancy.  Maybe you’re currently considering your abortion options, assessing which methods you do and do not support.  Some women feel open to trying the abortion pill. But they may not be comfortable with the idea of a surgical abortion.  The question of which abortion method to choose is certainly a difficult one.  Truth be told, weighing the pros and cons of any pregnancy decision and finding a path forward can be very challenging.  The good news is, that you don’t have to navigate this on your own!

Full freedom to make a pregnancy decision belongs to you, but that doesn’t mean you have to face this difficult season alone.  Our compassionate pregnancy consultants are available to talk about abortion and your plans for this pregnancy as openly as you wish to.  We’re here to provide accurate information, resources, and caring support so you feel empowered to take your best steps forward.

Your Unique Perspective

The thoughts and feelings behind your outlook on abortion may be complex and unique.  You may be drawn to some methods more than others.  Perhaps taking the abortion pill feels less invasive, like an everyday routine, or you appreciate the privacy that this allows.  On the other hand, some may prefer a surgical abortion that offers more medical supervision.  You have a one-of-a-kind viewpoint that is shaped by your personality, experiences, and many other factors.  Having an honest conversation about your opinions on abortion or other pregnancy options may feel nerve-wracking.  This subject is a controversial one, and views expressed in the media or in private discussions are not always kind and respectful.  However, if you’re considering abortion, you may find it helpful to process your feelings around this with a caring, trustworthy individual before taking your next steps.

Let’s Walk This Road Together

Avenue Women’s Center offers a safe space to talk about your beliefs regarding abortion, pregnancy options, and any other topics related to your pregnancy.  Our knowledgeable, non-judgmental pregnancy consultants are here to listen.  We aim to provide you with the options information, resources, and support you need to make an informed decision.  Although it may feel a little uncomfortable at first, speaking with a pregnancy consultant or another confidant may help you understand your own mindset and emotions in a clearer light.  Someone who is not personally involved in your situation may offer the added benefit of a fresh perspective.  And we all need caring support, especially when faced with trying circumstances.

Learn About Your Pregnancy

Avenue Women’s Center offers free, limited medical ultrasounds to assess the health of your pregnancy and how far along you are.  This is vital to know as soon as possible. Some early pregnancy risks like ectopic pregnancy (which occurs when the fertilized egg is located outside the uterus) require immediate medical attention.  If an ultrasound determines that a pregnancy is likely to end in miscarriage, an abortion may not be needed.  And if you do choose to move forward with an abortion, it will be important to know how far the pregnancy has progressed.  The more you know about your pregnancy, the more insight you’ll have in your decision-making process.

At Avenue, we know that every woman has a unique story and set of beliefs, so our team customizes services to your individual situation.  We respect your point of view and are here to help you move forward with courage and confidence.  All services are completely confidential and free of charge!
