We Inform. You Decide.
During your visit at Rachel House, we will talk through each type of abortion and make sure you have all the information you need before making your decision.
There are several types of abortion options. The abortion pill, also known as RU-486 or the medical abortion pill, is available for use up to 70 days after the last menstrual period. All other types of abortion are surgical. The first type is aspiration or suction and it is available up to 13 weeks after the last menstrual period. The second type is called dilation and evacuation, also known as an D&E, is available from 13 weeks after the first menstrual period.
There are several factors that determine the cost of an abortion. Some of those factors are length of pregnancy, geographic region, medication needed and procedure type.
Be aware that some abortion service organizations do benefit financially from your decision. Be sure to educate yourself on the specific organization as you engage their services. Rachel House exists only to serve you and does not financially profit from any choice you make. Rachel House does not perform or refer for abortions.
Every medical procedure, including abortion, carries the risk of complications and side effects. You have the right to know the risks of each abortion procedure before making a choice and giving informed consent.
