If you are under 18-years-old and cannot tell your parent or guardian, you can come to the clinic to complete the JUDICIAL BYPASS process prior to your abortion or on the day of your abortion.
If you need to use a translator to understand medical terms, you can utilize our phone translation services or come into the office for the phone translation services.
If you are unsure of the date of your last period and want to determine how many weeks gestation you are prior to your abortion.
If you want to talk with someone about your options of abortion, adoption, and parenting.
Certain health conditions can create complications during the abortion procedure. If you have a health issue, it’s important we know your full medical history so we can give you safe care.

Medication Abortions, a.k.a. the Abortion Pill
Surgical Abortions are outpatient procedures and don’t involve cutting or stitching. You will be released shortly after the abortion is complete, but you will can consider a form of Pain Management for the procedure, and possibly bring a support person depending on the type of pain management you choose.
Further information about each type of abortion can be found on our Abortion Options page.
We will schedule you for the earliest possible appointment your situation allows and requires. Usually you can schedule an appointment within 1 week of calling our office.
You may see protestors outside of our building. They do not know you or what you are here for, since we offer a variety of services. They may try to speak to you, but they are required by the City of Pittsburgh to stay 15 feet away from the entrance. On Saturdays, you will see clinic escorts in brightly colored vests outside to help guide you to the clinic.
In most cases, we can offer birth control or a prescription for birth control on the day of your abortion. Our counselors can go over your options for birth control. If you aren't getting an abortion but are still interested in birth control, make an appointment at our clinic for a gynecological exam. We will go through all your birth control options and help you pick the right one for you.
