If I am wanting an abortion, why do I still need an ultrasound?

Here are some reasons ultrasound is important...

  • Pregnancy tests do not confirm pregnancies - ultrasounds do.
  • You can't get an abortion unless you know you are pregnant. This is confirmed by an ultrasound scan.
  • Abortion methods depend on how far along you are in the pregnancy.
  • Abortion clinics usually charge for an ultrasound. Portico does ultrasound free of charge.

During an ultrasound appointment, clients at Portico have an opportunity to talk with a medical professional about the different types of abortion. This helps clients understand abortion procedures before they make a final decision.

For more information or to schedule an appointment with us, please call Portico 615.893.0228.
