The advantage in coming to Gateway Women’s Care first is that you will receive the required pre-abortion services for free, rather than being charged for them. Gateway does not profit in any way from your decision. Find out your rights as an abortion patient in a warm and sensitive environment; what questions to ask at the clinic; what to expect from the procedure options; and more. Our ultrasounds are always free of charge regardless of your choice.
You won’t be rushed. We know this is a hard decision.
You will still have abortion options, but making a rushed decision without considering all your options may lead to regret. Give yourself time to really adjust to the news of your pregnancy, gather all the information you need, and consider all options and possibilities. This gives you the power to make the best informed decision.
You may not need an abortion at all. A significant number of pregnancies end naturally in the first trimester through miscarriage (approx. 23%), making an abortion an unnecessary procedure and expense. You have the right to know if your pregnancy is likely to continue before having an abortion. An ultrasound will provide this information.
It is against the law for anyone to force or coerce you into having an abortion, even if it’s your parents or partner. This is your decision, even if you are a minor. We can provide you with support and legal help if needed.
Absolutely, you can! Women are strong, courageous, and capable of being mothers as well as fulfilling their dreams of finishing school and having a great career. Many women have done just that and with the right support, you CAN too!
Plan B One-Step (Morning-After Pill) is intended to prevent fertilization after known or suspected contraceptive failure, unprotected intercourse or forced sex. It may also work by preventing the egg and sperm from meeting by delaying ovulation; or it may prevent a newly formed life (embryo) from implanting in the uterus.
The Abortion Pill is a series of pills that disrupt an embryo/fetus’ attachment to the uterus, and cause uterine cramps which push the baby out.
