Types of Abortion


In determining which type of abortion procedure would be most appropriate, you must know how far along you are. We can offer you an ultrasound that can determine how far along you are, confirm the pregnancy is in your uterus, and that there is a fetal heartbeat.

**If you are planning on taking RU-486/Abortion Pill, read the important warning.
