“I want to get an abortion.” We understand that statement probably doesn’t mean you WANT to get an abortion, but it means you’ve learned you’re pregnant, and this is not a time when you planned or want to have a baby. We understand if you’re saying, “I want to get an abortion,” you’re in a difficult situation. We hope you will allow us to help you through it.
At Avenue Women’s Center, we are here to help you with information you need as you determine your best, well-thought-out course of action, and we are here to walk with you through your experience. All our services are strictly confidential, and many are free. Please contact us by phone, text, email or chat.
As you identify your next steps, one of our trained and experienced Avenue Women’s Center client advocates can assist you in exploring these questions:
- Am I absolutely certain that I am pregnant?
- How far along am I in the pregnancy?
- What kind of abortion should I seek? Surgical or a medication abortion?
- What happens with each type of abortion? Is one preferable to the other?
- How do I know which one I am eligible for?
- Are there other questions I should ask that I haven’t thought of yet?

One of our clients said this about Avenue Women’s Center: “I’m so glad I came here, my friend was trying to get me to go to Planned Parenthood, but for whatever reason I didn’t feel comfortable doing that. I feel comfortable here.”
