A pregnancy test is not always correct. The test responds to a hormone called HCG your body releases when you are pregnant. However, with about 30% of all pregnancies ending in a miscarriage, your HCG levels may be high, but you might not have a viable pregnancy. Ultrasound is the best way to detect viable pregnancies. Sophia Women’s Center provides free ultrasound services.
Considering an abortion?
Sophia Women’s Center should be your first call.
The gestational stage of your pregnancy determines the type and cost of the abortion procedure you are eligible to receive. Our free ultrasound provides this information. You will be able to verify this information is accurate if you choose to see the ultrasound.
Because abortion (even using the RU486 abortion pills) is invasive, you need to consider your future reproductive health. If you have an abortion with an active STI, it may travel through your cervix, which must be opened for an abortion, causing PID (Pelvic Inflammatory Disease). Pelvic Inflammatory Disease is not only painful, but can cause infertility. We test for the two most common and treatable STI’s — free of charge. Many abortion clinics will not offer this service prior to your abortion.
Abortion providers, even non-profits, charge for all services. Although non-profits use “sliding scale” pricing based on your income, you will have to pay some out of pocket, use insurance, or you will need to qualify for Medicare.
Sophia Women’s Center is a non-profit medical clinic that is free and confidential for everyone, no matter what your circumstances. We do not require any information about your financial status or your social security number. Abortion clinics require all that information. We are here to provide you with factual medical information so you can make an informed choice. Because we do not perform or refer for abortions or profit from any decision you will make, you will not be pressured. Your voice matters. We’re listening.
