Since abortion is no longer legal in the state of Texas, you might be thinking of traveling out of state for an abortion. Before doing this, you need to verify if your pregnancy is viable and how long you’ve been pregnant. The type of abortion you qualify for is determined by this information. Begin by reviewing our abortion checklist.
Before you make an appointment for an abortion, confirm whether you’re actually pregnant. Contact Aggieland Pregnancy Outreach for free pregnancy testing to confirm your pregnancy.
Up to 25% of early pregnancies end in a natural miscarriage, avoiding the need for an abortion. An ultrasound can let you accurately determine the number of weeks you’ve been pregnant, the viability of your pregnancy, and provide other important information to determine what abortion options are available to you.
If you are thinking of traveling to another state for an abortion, be sure you understand the abortion methods that may be available to you there and what to expect during the procedure. The staff at APO can discuss abortion procedures. You can learn about the possible physical, psychological and emotional side effects and potential risks.
It’s normal to have questions before any major medical procedure. Are you wanting answers about these?
Make sure you are not being pressured. Only you know whether an abortion is right for you. No one can decide for you, pressure you, or force you to have an abortion, even if you’re a minor. Forced abortion is against the law.
Abortion is a big decision. Having someone to talk to and provide support can give you the confidence you need to know you’re making the right decision for yourself.
Rather than travel out of state, you may wonder about taking the abortion pill. Because abortion is now illegal in the state, you cannot legally get a prescription for the pills. It’s also a violation of state law to order abortion pills online. Some people choose to skirt this law anyway. It is important to know exactly how far along you are in your pregnancy before taking the abortion pill. The farther along, the increased your risks for harming yourself.
Believe it or not, you do have options for your unplanned pregnancy. Although abortion may seem like a quick way “to get rid of the problem,” there are lingering after-effects.
If you have questions about abortion procedures or are curious about the options available to you, contact a pregnancy counselor at Aggieland Pregnancy Outreach. You are not alone.
You have the power to make Brave decisions.
