There are different chemical and surgical procedures for abortion. Abortion procedures are determined by how far along you are in your pregnancy. PCCV can confirm pregnancy and gestational age through a medical ultrasound and review the corresponding abortion procedures with you.

It’s important to understand what the risks are before you make a decision. PCCV can provide information on these possible risks and side-effects in a safe, non-judgmental environment.
