Considering the abortion pill? 5 reasons to start here before visiting a CVS or Planned Parenthood

As a woman, few things feel more overwhelming than navigating an unexpected pregnancy. And in today's world, there is the added pressure of trying to process everyone's opinions regarding women's reproductive rights and bodily autonomy. You may even feel rushed to make a decision quickly. 


Deciding where to seek help first is crucial; your choices can impact your life and have long-term effects such as regret or future health concerns. If you are considering abortion or the abortion pill and your search includes CVS or Planned Parenthood, start with a free appointment with us. We are a free women’s center dedicated to helping women get the answers and support they need through pregnancy decisions and beyond. No pressure. No cost. Just care. 


Here are five compelling reasons why we are the best first step on your journey.


  1. Free Services

Not sure if you are pregnant or if the pregnancy is viable or if you are at risk for a natural miscarriage? Start with us! Pregnancy testing is free, and the results are quick. We provide onsite lab-grade pregnancy tests at no cost to you. If the test is positive, we can offer a free ultrasound to confirm how far along you are and if the pregnancy is viable. This information is vital as it can influence the type and cost of an abortion. 


While CVS and other pharmacies offer over-the-counter pregnancy tests, they lack comprehensive follow-up care and confirmation. Planned Parenthood charges a small fee for pregnancy tests as well.


  1. Medical Guidance

Discussing your options and health history with a licensed medical professional before deciding is essential. Every woman's body and experience are unique; your health and safety should always come first. We offer no-cost appointments with a medical professional where you can discuss your medical history, any medications you are on, and allergies to mifepristone or misoprostol, the two most common drugs in the abortion pill regimen. We also confirm a viable pregnancy. It’s also important to rule out an ectopic pregnancy, get tested for STDs, and find out if you are Rh-negative.


While CVS is a great option for general health needs, they do not provide consultations on pregnancy or abortion, what to expect if you take abortion pills, side effects, or go over your health history and eligibility. Planned Parenthood offers consultations but often requires payment before speaking with a medical professional. We believe you deserve these critical consultations at no cost, ensuring you receive the necessary information to make an informed decision regarding your pregnancy.


  1. Pressure-Free

We believe women deserve to make decisions without coercion or a sales pitch. Abortion is big business, but we put women first here. We don’t profit from your reproductive health decisions which means we don’t provide or perform abortion services here. Instead, we offer all the answers you need to make an informed and empowered choice on your own. This means we help individuals not only know what the medical options are but also the local free resources available.


You are more than a number. You will always be treated with respect and kindness here.
