If you’re in a pregnancy situation that has surprised you, many questions may be floating around in your mind. You are not alone. You can be assured that we’ve met with other women who have asked the same questions. Whether it’s pregnancy related, financial, material, relational, or emotional, we have dealt with it all and are ready to help. We have nurses ready to walk alongside you and help answer your questions before you decide your next steps. If you are considering an abortion you will want to be well informed.

Gateway Women’s Care provides free services that you need before an abortion, all at no cost to you! North Carolina law mandates that a woman receive certain abortion related information at least 72 hours prior to an abortion, which then allows her to give her “informed consent” to her abortion. You have the right to choose an abortion, and you also have the right to be informed of all the facts about your pregnancy and the abortion procedure. Gateway Women’s Care provides you with this information free of charge.

You can also have a free ultrasound at Gateway Women’s Care – we provide limited ultrasound for qualified clients. Having a free ultrasound can determine:

  • Accurate gestational age (how far along you are).
  • What abortion procedures you are eligible for at this stage of pregnancy.
  • Is there a measurable heartbeat – why pay for an abortion if the pregnancy is not viable
  • Whether the pregnancy is in the uterus (not an ectopic/tubal pregnancy).

We are committed to treating every person with respect and dignity, no matter their decision and we can help YOU as you consider your abortion options.
