When faced with an unintended pregnancy, abortion may seem like a clear-cut decision, but there are several things to consider – type of procedure, the short and long-term risks, abortion cost, and available alternatives. It’s an important decision that is yours to make. At the Pregnancy Resource Center Medical Clinic, you will get the guidance and support you need to make a decision you can feel good about.
It is a good idea to get an ultrasound before getting an abortion. With an ultrasound, you’ll know for sure how many weeks pregnant you are. The stage of your pregnancy will determine the types of abortions available to you. You can also learn if you might have a natural miscarriage, since up to 20% of known pregnancies end in miscarriage 5. An ultrasound can also determine whether the pregnancy is in utero (in the uterus) or ectopic (outside the womb), which can be life-threatening.
At the Pregnancy Resource Center Medical Clinic we can also discuss with you the types of abortions and associated risks, so you can make an informed decision.
If you are sexually active and are concerned that you may be pregnant, make an appointment for a pregnancy test at Pregnancy Resource Center Medical Clinic. The Clinic will answer your questions and provide you with factual information in order for you to make an informed decision. If you are pregnant, you may qualify for a limited ultrasound at no cost to you. All of our services are free and confidential.

A: You’ll be welcomed by our receptionist who will introduce you to your client advocate. She will listen to you judgment-free and provide you with information followed by a pregnancy test.

A: We adhere to a strict privacy and confidentiality policy. Clients will be protected from disclosure of information that violates the right to privacy except when required by law, required for public health reasons, required to avert a threat of harm to the client or a third person, or when other circumstances may reasonably warrant such use or disclosure without prior authorization (e.g., abuse reporting, suicide/homicide prevention, etc.).
A: Our professional, medical-grade lab quality pregnancy test can determine pregnancy at the first day after your first missed period. We recommend you make an appointment if you have missed a period, have any pregnancy related questions, or think you might be pregnant.
A: On-site ultrasounds are available after an initial intake with one of our client advocates. Our limited ultrasound exams are performed by a licensed nurse sonographer or RDMS (registered sonographer) and reviewed by a licensed physician. An ultrasound confirms a viable pregnancy and determines how far along you are. To qualify for a limited ultrasound, you’ll need to be a minimum of 6 weeks since your last menstrual period.
A: You can still meet with a member of our staff to discuss your concerns and review available options. An ultrasound is recommended to know if your pregnancy is viable and in your uterus, since 20% – 25% of all pregnancies end in miscarriage. Additionally, the ultrasound will show how far along you are to determine what type of abortion you would choose. We can provide a limited ultrasound at no cost to you.
