Abortion Safety Checklist

What every woman should ask.

When making an important decision, make sure you have all of the accurate facts before you make your decision. Most women have questions and doubts. It’s totally ok to talk this through. You matter and your health is important.

have you confirmed your pregnancy?

It’s important to be sure that you are pregnant; it is possible to receive a false indication of pregnancy.

do you understand the risks involved in an abortion procedure?

Abortion is a medical procedure and does involve the risk of physical harm. You have the legal right to be informed of the type of procedure you will receive, as well as any potential complications. Ask as many questions as you need, to make sure you understand all that is involved, physically and emotionally.

did you investigate the qualifications of your potential abortion provider?

Find out the name of the doctor who will perform your abortion procedure and confirm that he or she is a licensed physician and a board-certified obstetrician-gynecologist. Call and ask if the doctor has appropriate privileges to admit you to a hospital in the event that there is an emergency. Also, many states maintain public records about past medical malpractice judgments and settlements. Call your state agency (medical licensing board) to see if the doctor has been involved in any medical malpractice suits.

Ask how complications are handled. Abortion providers may not provide any follow-up or emergency care, should complications arise. 

are you feeling pressured to have an abortion?

No one should ever feel pressured to make an abortion decision. Our team will listen to your feelings and no one will rush you.

do you understand that it’s ok to change your mind?

Abortion is your choice—meaning you can change your mind at any time. It’s OK to say, “I need more time to consider my decision,” if you are in the waiting room or even on the table prepped for your procedure. Don’t feel pressured to proceed just because you feel like you have to. It’s your body; you have the right to listen to your instincts.
