Are you considering an abortion? If so, know that it is your legal right to be fully informed before making any decisions. An informed choice involves exploring all options, how each affects your whole being—physical, emotional, and spiritual—and looks at the present as well as the future. An abortion is a medical procedure that affects your body. Like any other medical procedure, you should be completely informed about the process with accurate medical information. Some of the questions you may have that our client advocates and medical staff can assist you in thinking through include:
Am I actually pregnant?
At North Side Pregnancy Options we offer FREE pregnancy testing and limited obstetrical ultrasounds. If you are not certain about your pregnancy status or just want a solid confirmation, our client advocates, medical professionals, and ultrasound nurses are happy to provide these services and talk you through your options moving forward.
What type of abortion procedures exist?
We provide medically accurate information provided by the Minnesota Department of Health about all abortion procedures, including the abortion pill (RU-486), Vacuum Aspiration, Dilation and Curettage, Dilation and Evacuation, Labor Induction, Hysterectomy, and Dilation and Extraction.
What are the potential risks?
Like any medical procedure, abortion holds the risk of complications. Becoming fully informed about the risks involved with each abortion procedure is a wise decision and will help you make the best choice for you and your health.
What are my rights?
There are risks, side-effects, and alternative options to abortion. Before consenting to a procedure, know that you have the legal right to be fully-informed about all the different aspects of your decision.
