No, we do not perform or refer for abortions or provide any abortion services. This is out of care for your personal health.

We believe it is critical for you to make a fully-informed decision. This is why we aim to be a resource to help you learn about abortion options and their risks as you navigate an unplanned pregnancy—and make you aware of the abortion alternatives available to you.

An abortion is a procedure intended to terminate, or end, a pregnancy.

We have information on our website about common abortion procedures performed during the first, second, and third trimester and their associated complications.

While each procedure has specific risks, general side effects and risks include abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headache, heavy bleeding, injury to the uterus or cervix, lacerations, uterine perforations, hemorrhage, infection, future pregnancy complications, and maternal death.

Recovery from an abortion can be a long and difficult journey. We have worked with many clients who have found healing after their abortion experience. We strongly urge you to listen to their abortion stories and the impact that having an abortion had on their life. The Pregnancy Network offers a confidential Abortion Recovery class to help you find hope and healing after an abortion. Abortion Recovery will help you work through the difficulties and tensions you may be facing. Call us at (336) 274-4881 to ask about our Abortion Recovery class.

The two alternatives to having an abortion are parenting and adoption. If you decide to pursue one of these alternatives, you will not walk the path alone—our team is here to support you at every step of the process.
