If you have finally decided to have an abortion, it can be difficult to find a legally operating abortion hospital, since the people who promote their clinics as abortion centers are run by anti-abortion institutions. Whichever way you look, you’ll find women’s health centers that function alongside abortion centers, the former supporting women’s reproductive choices, making it difficult for you to decide which one to opt for. Let’s be clear, these centers will not help you because they are all working to reverse your decision to abort, and will delay the procedure to such an extent that it will be too late and therefore risky to terminate the pregnancy.
A good clinic will be able to terminate your pregnancy at their facility or ask you to contact a particular abortionist. Such clinics will have stated on their websites or promotions that they offer referrals for abortions, or that they can terminate a pregnancy at their facility.
It is also confusing to get correct information online about procedures and ways to perform abortion. When you search the internet for an abortion, you will be inundated with results directing you to centers that provide medical knowledge about the process, created primarily to scare you into giving up on the idea.
While searching the Internet, the result may not lead you to abortion services; instead, they may try to change your mind by sending you to people who have that intention in mind. There are many organizations in the US that are working against abortion and pro-life, which is a huge obstacle to obtaining legal abortions.
Many websites you may visit during your search will only promote pro-life thoughts, but you can easily read their intentions. Once the website talks about the risks involved in terminating a pregnancy and the regrets that the woman will have to suffer later, you are sure that it is an anti-abortion website. Sometimes images of the abortion are shown to scare her, even going so far as to suggest that an abortion can lead to other health complications such as breast cancer. They will also exploit the aftermath of abortion such as damage to internal organs, scarring which is a rarity as abortions are performed by professionals trained to handle such situations.
Only a few health centers offer a referral or termination of pregnancy service in their facilities. Some clinics are against abortion and will never refer you to a place where you can get the service. In fact, many of these centers have been known to discourage abortion and encourage adoption.
In fact, getting an abortion is difficult, especially considering that in the US more than 85 counties do not have a legal abortion service. Although it has been a legal process in the US for more than 30 years, the laws vary from county to county, depending on your age. The laws proclaim that as an adult, (18+), the choice of reproduction is a right that is conferred on you. For a teenage girl, parental consent for an abortion may not be required in some states and may be required in others, depending on her correct age and where she resides.
After you have chosen the right place to obtain pregnancy termination services, you must clearly distinguish between the medical procedure and the surgical procedure of abortion, and choose the one that suits your condition.
