NO JUDGMENTS

BE CERTAIN YOU ARE PREGNANT

Before scheduling any type of abortion, you need to know that you are in fact pregnant and how far along you are. Even if you have pregnancy symptoms or have taken a home test, we suggest visiting Open Arms for a FREE medical quality pregnancy test.

CONFIRM VIABILITY WITH ULTRASOUND

Statistics show that 1 in 4 early pregnancies end in natural miscarriage. If you have a positive pregnancy test at Open Arms, you may be eligible for a free, limited obstetric ultrasound. This information will help you in your decision-making process by answering the following three questions:

  • How far along are you?
  • Is the pregnancy located in the uterus?
  • Does your baby have a detectable heartbeat?

Common Questions

Do I Have To Tell My Parents If I’m Under 18?

The requirements for this vary from state to state. In Ohio, the law requires anyone under the age of 18 who is looking to obtain an abortion to have consent from a parent or legal guardian.

How Much Does an Abortion Cost?

The final cost is dependent on multiple factors. Those factors being: how far along you are in your pregnancy, what type of abortion you have, your healthcare provider, and the clinic you go to. Ohio has a 24 hour waiting period, which requires all patients to come to the clinic at least twice. The cost of an abortion starts around $500 and increases as pregnancy progresses. In Ohio, health plans (including Medicare and Medicaid) can only cover abortion in cases of life endangerment, or in cases of rape or incest.

When can I get an abortion? Am I too far along to take the pill?

In Ohio, an abortion can be obtained up to 22 weeks after the last menstrual period. Any abortion beyond that, may only be performed under the condition that your life is in danger from the pregnancy or that you are dealing with severe physical health complications. In addition, an abortion pill is an option only for women who are no more than 10 weeks pregnant. After 10 weeks, the pill becomes illegal to use for abortion and surgical methods must be used.

If you don’t know how far along you are, Open Arms Pregnancy Center offers a free limited obstetrical ultrasound with proof of positive pregnancy. Call or stop in to get an appointment scheduled today.

If I change my mind after taking the first pill, is there anything I can do?

Many women don’t know this, but the abortion pill is actually two pills, each with a different function. If you change your mind after taking the first pill and haven’t yet taken the second pill, call the Abortion Pill Reversal hotline 877-558-0333 right away. It may not be too late for you to save the pregnancy.

Why do I need an ultrasound before an abortion?

Receiving an ultrasound before you get an abortion is an important medical step and one of the most accurate ways to get essential information about your pregnancy. An ultrasound determines if you’re still pregnant, how far along you are, and the location of your pregnancy. This is the first step in discovering what pregnancy options you have as each abortion procedure is only available during certain points of your pregnancy. At Open Arms Pregnancy Center, we provide limited ultrasounds free of charge; call or text today to learn more.

Does abortion hurt? How will I feel after?

Every person’s experience with abortion will differ. Most women experience bleeding and cramping, as well as other possible physical risks.

There is no universally accepted standard for how you should expect to feel after an abortion. In some cases, women can deal with feelings of depression, grief, guilt, and loss; this is commonly referred to as Post Abortion Stress Syndrome or PASS. If you are dealing with such feelings or just want someone to talk to about your experience with abortion, Open Arms provides post-abortion support at no cost. Call to schedule an appointment today.
