Pregnant? Abortion is an option.

Abortions are legal, and they can seem like the quickest way to make sure you don’t become a parent right now. It’s a big decision, and we can help you talk through it anonymously.

Maybe you’ve had an abortion before and are considering this option again. Maybe you can’t financially support a baby right now, or have no help to raise a child. Or maybe motherhood was never your plan, and your birth control failed.

Whatever your reasons are, there are no judgments here. Just answers to your questions and support when you need it. The Adoption Support Center has your back while you consider the decision that’s right for you.

Choice
“You know your story and you know your truth. If abortion is what’s best for you, nobody can tell you it isn’t — even if you’re struggling with the decision.”
— Jasmin Calvin, adoption therapist

How long do I have to make a decision?

If you’re considering abortion, the most important thing you can do is to get an accurate ultrasound to know your date of conception. Once you know that date, you’ll have a better idea of your timeline.
Here’s where you can have an accurate ultrasound done in Indiana:
Planned Parenthood
Women’s Care Center*
Clarity*
Pregnancy Choices*
Unless it’s a medical emergency, the state of Indiana only allows abortions in the first trimester. That gives you about 3 months from your date of conception to make a decision and have the procedure done. And if your pregnancy is further along, nearby states have different laws and timelines when it comes to abortion. We can help you understand your options.

LEARN THE COSTS

How much does it cost?

The price of an abortion can really vary. Some will cost a few hundred dollars, while others will cost more than a thousand dollars. It all depends on a number of factors.

  • What type of health insurance you have. Insurance companies don’t cover the procedure. However, if the pregnancy is life-threatening for the mother, a case can be made to cover the cost, if certified by a medical practitioner.
  • How far along your pregnancy is. Typically, the further along, the more expensive the procedure will be.
  • If you have to visit a hospital. Procedures at a hospital can be much more expensive than those performed at a clinic.

After abortion, what’s next?

Many women have told us that they chose abortion because it “makes the pregnancy go away.” While that might be true, the emotions that come with terminating an unintended pregnancy don’t go away so easily.

Nobody knows what’s going on in your head and your heart better than you do. You might be feeling shame or guilt. You might be angry, sad or feeling hopeless. And if you’re like most of the women we talk to, you’re probably feeling isolated and lonely.

Whatever you’re feeling, you’re not alone. These abortion recovery groups can help you find a community of women to help you process your grief.

Where can I find support when considering abortion?

A friend or family member.

Do you have a friend or family member who you can confide in? One who you can trust, and who never judges you? That’s where many women turn for support after they’ve had an abortion.

Your loved one might not always have advice or be able to help you process what you’re feeling — and that’s okay. What’s most important is that you have another person you can talk to about what you’re going through. It can help to just talk without being interrupted, even if it’s a one-sided conversation.

A free pregnancy test clinic.

If you don’t feel comfortable talking to someone you know, it can be helpful to talk to a neutral third party. Here’s a tip we’ve heard from plenty of women who’ve had abortions: free pregnancy test clinics are a great place to turn for support.

The staff at pregnancy clinics are highly trained, so you know that you’ll get advice that’s safe and proven. This is their job, and you can trust that they’ll offer you non-judgmental support no matter how many times you reach out.
