Abortion is legal in Georgia only up to 6 weeks of gestational age and women seeking abortions must provide voluntary informed consent at least 24 hours beforehand, except in medical emergencies. Minors must notify a parent or guardian 24 hours before a court waives that requirement.
If you’re already farther along than six weeks, you may be considering traveling out of state for an abortion or are interested in learning about all your pregnancy options.
Read this article to learn more about traveling out of state and recommended health screenings before an abortion.
What Should I Do Before Getting an Abortion?
The good news is that you don’t have to travel out of state to find answers or support. PRC Medical offers no-cost services, which you can take advantage of before deciding.
Ultrasounds & Pregnancy Testing
Even if you have taken an at-home pregnancy test, we offer no-cost, clinical pregnancy testing that will confirm your pregnancy before taking any further action.
We also offer ultrasounds that tell you the pregnancy’s age, location, and health. If the pregnancy fails to develop (resulting in an eventual miscarriage), or is located outside the uterus (an ectopic pregnancy), you’ll want to seek medical attention and receive treatment other than abortion.
The gestational age of the pregnancy (how long you’ve been pregnant) can tell you if you qualify for a medication abortion. The FDA approved the abortion pill method through 10 weeks (70 days from the first day of your last menstrual period).
Women should feel empowered to make the best choice for their reproductive health and future. Our clinic provides resources and medically-accurate education to inform that choice.
We offer no-cost pregnancy options consultations where we address your questions and concerns confidentially. Together, we can develop a plan that gives you confidence in your decision. Please contact us today to schedule a confidential appointment.
