ABORTION IN TEXAS: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Following the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v Wade, abortions were outlawed in the state of Texas according to a trigger law that went into effect August 25, 2022.
Before you consider self-managed abortion or out-of-state travel, it is important to have your pregnancy medically verified and assessed. The Fort Worth Pregnancy Center offers this service free of charge.
1) If your pregnancy is viable – up to 20% of known pregnancies end in miscarriage, and most miscarriages happen in the first trimester
2) If you are at risk of an ectopic pregnancy, which can be life-threatening, if not treated
3) What to expect after a medical abortion (the abortion pill) or a surgical abortion
Our caring staff is available to confidentially answer your questions. Your health and well-being are our priority.
STEP ONE: an initial consultation with a client advocate to discuss your plans and the options available to you.
STEP TWO: an ultrasound is provided by our medical staff. Knowing how far along you are, if there are signs you might miscarry, or if you have an ectopic pregnancy are all important pieces of information to help you in your decision-making process. The ultrasound will provide this confidentially and free of charge.
STEP THREE: Talk through your options with your client advocate, including procedure types, risks, recovery time, and relevent laws. Your next steps should be based on knowledge, not fear, and should give you peace of mind, not panic.
KNOW THE FACTS AND BE FULLY INFORMED.
Different abortion methods are used to end pregnancy based on how far along you are. Our qualified staff will help you understand what you can expect so that you can be fully informed. Before you choose, get answers to your questions and information on all of your options.
Our services are provided to clients without regard to age, race, income, nationality, religious affiliation, disability, or other arbitrary circumstances. In keeping with our non-profit, pro-woman mission, Fort Worth Pregnancy Center does not provide or refer for abortion services, so we never profit from your pregnancy decision.
