About Our Clinic

We also provide information about the abortion pill and the morning after pill also known as Plan B.  A woman who receives pregnancy support and education during her pregnancy is more likely to have a much more positive view of her pregnancy and birth experience and she will have a more positive view of her child after his or her birth. Abortion is a big decision which many women later regret. At Option 1, we strive to inform you about all of your options and to discuss all of one\’s abortion alternatives in an environment that is confidential, professional and non-judgmental.
