Abortion

Regardless of the status of abortion in Wisconsin, If you are facing an unplanned pregnancy, it's important to truly understand all of your options. We believe that your best choice is an informed choice. We can go over your pregnancy options, answer your questions or just take the time to listen to your thoughts and feelings. We know you’re dealing with a lot during this time, which is why our staff is ready to equip you with the information you need to make an empowered decision.

Abortion Information

We believe women have a right to accurate and truthful information.  All of Abiding Care’s services are 100% free, therefore, we do not profit from the decision that you make. This allows us to focus completely on you, and on helping you find the best option.

The two main types of abortion are medication and surgical. Which type of procedure is an option for you depends on how far along your pregnancy has progressed. You can find this out by having an ultrasound performed.  Below is just a brief summary of each option.  We highly recommend coming in for an appointment to discuss these options further with our nurse so you can make a fully informed decision. 

 

 

Medication Abortion (The Abortion Pill)

Referred to by many names  – Medication abortion, Plan C, Missed Period Pill, it’s most commonly called the Abortion Pill.  This method will end a pregnancy by stopping the flow of progesterone to the pregnancy and subsequently inducing labor to remove the fetus through the vagina. This process results in heavy bleeding and other discomforts.

 

Surgical Abortion

Depending on the progress of the pregnancy and the size of the fetus, there are different types of surgical abortions available. Basically, surgical abortions use tools and local anesthesia to open the cervix and remove the fetus. After the procedure ends, women often deal with cramping and additional side effects.

Hope and Help for YOU After an abortion, many women experience relief. The crisis of pregnancy is over and life returns to its normal state.
 
However, some women begin to experience negative emotions months, and even years, after their abortion. Post Abortion Stress Syndrome (PASS) is very real, but so is the help.  Symptoms include: 
  • bouts of crying
  • depression
  • guilt
  • inability to forgive yourself
  • intense grief/sadness
  • anger/rage
  • emotional numbness
  • sexual problems or promiscuity
  • eating disorders
  • lowered self-esteem
  • drug and alcohol abuse
  • nightmares and sleep disturbances
  • suicidal urges
  • difficulty with relationships
  • anxiety and panic attacks
  • flashbacks
  • multiple abortions
  • discomfort around babies or pregnant women
  • fear/ambivalence of pregnancy 
 
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you are not alone. We are here to help – whether your abortion was 15 years ago or just 3 days.
 
We also understand how hard it is to come forward in person in a small town.  Because of that, we have compiled a list of organizations that provide online help – completely confidential and full of compassion – all are headed up by women who themselves are post-abortive and are here to help.  Click on the links below to start your journey towards help and healing:
