When you discover you are unexpectedly pregnant, it is normal to feel like you are in a crisis. We are here to support you in taking time to think through all of your options. Please note that abortion is a medical procedure and should always be discussed with a medical professional. Gabriel Network does not provide or refer for abortion.

What is an Abortion?

Abortion is a medical procedure used to terminate a pregnancy. Depending on how far along your pregnancy is, there are different procedures available. Earlier in pregnancy medical abortions, more commonly referred to as the abortion pill, are available. Later in pregnancy, medical abortions are no longer available and surgical abortions are required.

What are the Risks of Abortion?

Like any other medical procedure, abortion comes with its own risks. You deserve to know all the facts so you can make an educated decision about your pregnancy.

Some risks include:

  • Bleeding
  • Cramping
  • Damage to the uterus or cervix
  • Infections
  • Infertility
  • Increased risk for Pelvic Inflammatory Disease

These are only a handful of possible risks, and there may be unique risks for you. This is why we always encourage you to speak with a medical professional before making any decisions about abortion.
