Questions to Ask Before You Have an Abortion

If you have decided, after reading all the information and exploring all your alternatives, to choose abortion, it is very important that you feel in control of this process.

Some questions to ask yourself:

  • Is this MY decision or am I feeling pressured in any way by any other person or circumstances?

  • Have I considered other choices I can make including adoption or raising my child?

  • Have I considered how I will feel about this decision in the future ... in 1 month, 9 months, years from now?

  • How will I feel if I am unable to fall pregnant in the future?

Some questions to ask your abortion provider before making your appointment:

  • What is the name of the doctor who will be performing my abortion?

  • Does the doctor have admitting rights to my local hospital in case of complications?

  • Do you provide independent counselling so I can discuss my options?

  • Does this counselling cost money? If so how much?

  • Do I have to pay any money up front before my counselling? If so, how much?

  • Can I change my mind at any time and get a full refund of any money paid?

  • Will you provide an ultrasound if I choose?

  • Will I be allowed to view this ultrasound if I choose?

  • Will you give me written information about post abortion counselling and any possible physical or emotional after effects?

If you are uncomfortable with any of their answers, you do not have to make an appointment.
