If you are pregnant and considering an abortion, it is crucial that you are informed about the differences in types of procedures, as well as the risks associated with each type.

The staff at Boston Center for Pregnancy Choices will present that information in an honest, caring manner, and will be available to answer any questions you may have regarding abortion.
An abortion is a medical procedure performed with the intent to terminate a pregnancy. There are two primary methods of abortion: an in-clinic procedure known as the surgical procedure and the medical procedure, which is commonly referred to as the abortion pill. The method used varies from patient to patient and is chosen based on how far along an individual is in her pregnancy. This is typically determined by having an ultrasound performed.
The surgical abortion is used to terminate a pregnancy during the first or second trimester of pregnancy. The medical procedure, ingested orally, is an option in the first few weeks of pregnancy. Both types of abortion can pose different risks to the woman. It is important to learn all the facts before undergoing an abortion procedure. Make sure that you have given yourself the proper time and thought before making any decision.
