Abortion Health & Safety Checklist
Things to consider before having an abortion
The information on this website is not intended to provide medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. Seek emergency care if you experience any of the following:
- Heavy bleeding — soaking two or more pads an hour for two hours.
- Severe abdominal or back pain.
- Fever lasting more than 24 hours.
- Foul-smelling vaginal discharge.1
Often abortion seems like a ‘quick fix’ that will make everything snap back to normal, but the fact is that your decision – whether you choose abortion, carry and parent, or carry and release for adoption – will have lifelong consequences for you. Take your time to carefully research all your options before you make a final decision. Slow down and make sure this is the best choice for you.
Go Through The Points Below And Check Any That Apply To You
If you cannot check each of the boxes, take some time and make sure that you have done everything necessary to prepare for this procedure. If you arrive at the clinic and you are not comfortable with what is going on, you are free to leave. At no point can the clinic detain you. If you are frightened and feel that you cannot leave call the police immediately. If someone is forcing you to have an abortion and you are in immediate danger please call 911. If someone is pressuring you or threatening you, call 911 and contact The Justice Foundation at 210-614-7157.
