Abortion Clinics: How to Choose an Abortion Provider

abortion clinics new jersey

When choosing an abortion provider, do your research! Not all abortion facilities are alike. There are some important questions you need to ask and you are entitled to know the answers before you make your appointment.



1.) What is the exact location of the facility? A vague response like “the NY-NJ area” is not an answer!
2.) Is the physician a gynecologist and is he/she board certified?
3.) What hospital is the doctor affiliated with and how far is it from the facility?
4.) Is there a clinic physician on call 24 hours a day if I have an emergency after my procedure?
5.) If the facility offers “the abortion pill”, how is it administered? Is it the actual abortion pill, Mifeprex, or another medication?
6.) Will I be offered anesthesia by an anesthesiologist or certified nurse anesthetist? Is there an additional charge for “general” anesthesia?
7.) How long has the facility been operating? What do other patients say about it on line?
8.) Will there be an RN in the operating room at the time of my procedure?
9.) Will I have an opportunity to ask questions and speak with a counselor before the procedure?
10.) Is a follow-up exam offered by a gynecologist and is there an extra charge?

If you feel that your questions have not been answered to your satisfaction, do not hesitate to call your local Planned Parenthood Affiliate and ask if they recommend the facility you have chosen and if not, why not?
