Before considering an abortion, you’ll need pregnancy verification to know how many weeks into the pregnancy you are. You will learn the options available to you. At ABC Life Choices, we offer pregnancy tests, abortion information consultations, and limited ultrasounds at no cost to you.
It’s important to know that you do not have to face this alone. Abortion is not the only option for an unplanned pregnancy. There’s a lot to consider. You can only make an informed decision if you know what to expect from the procedure and understand the risks.
Your first step is to make an appointment at ABC Life Choices near Nikiskito verify pregnancy and review your options.
A no-cost abortion information consultation includes:
An ultrasound will verify the gestational age of the fetus. This is especially helpful if you have irregular periods, have frequent spotting, or are not sure when you had your last period.
Ultrasound also determines the viability of the pregnancy. This is important since 20% – 25% of first trimester pregnancies end in miscarriage. Should the ultrasound reveal that the fetus is growing outside of the uterus (known as an ectopic pregnancy), you will be given instructions for immediate medical attention, as this condition can be life-threatening.
It is possible for you to have an STD or STI (sexually transmitted disease or infection) even if you are not experiencing any symptoms.

Coerced abortion is illegal. You are the only one legally allowed to decide which option is right for your unintended pregnancy. No one (parent or partner) can force you into an abortion, even if you are a minor. According to The Justice Foundation, it is unlawful for anyone including parents, guardians, other relatives, boyfriends, or even counselors to force, coerce, subject to duress or unduly pressure a pregnant woman into having an abortion. The decision belongs to the mother, even if she is a minor (Bellotti v. Baird, 443 U.S. 622 (1979). The decision to have an abortion must be voluntary and fully informed.
