When considering an abortion, your health and safety are important.

Slow down. You have come to the right place. There is help available. Take the steps to research and educate yourself on all your options. We have provided medically accurate information you need to know to make an informed decision.

Abortion is a serious and permanent choice… So, know all the facts BEFORE you decide.

Scared? Pressured? Trapped? Overwhelmed? If a baby is not in your plans right now, it is possible you are feeling at least one of these emotions—an abortion might seem like the best or easy way out. Your feelings are valid; this is a big decision.

While you are thinking through your options, it can be helpful to visualize each option. Think about how today’s decision will make you feel now, and try to think about how you will feel about it five years from now. While many people around you may have opinions on what you should do, you are the person who will live with whatever you choose to do. The important thing to remember is that this is your choice to make and it does not have to be rushed.

Most important of all, make sure you schedule an ultrasound!

Take the time to get the facts. At Muskegon Pregnancy Services you will find a supportive forum to explore the following:

Abortion Risks

Side effects for both medical and surgical abortions include:  cramping, bleeding, nausea, diarrhea, and pain. 

Although rare, other risks may include:  hemorrhage (life-threatening, heavy bleeding), infection, damage to organs (tearing or puncture by abortion instruments during surgical abortion), pre-term birth in later pregnancies, and life-threatening anesthesia complications (surgical abortion).  

Some women experience a range of long-term adverse psychological and emotional effects.   If you are a person of faith you may also be more at risk for guilt and/or depression-like symptoms if your decision to abort conflicts with your spiritual beliefs.

Michigan’s Informed Consent for Abortion law was created by Public Act 133 of 1993. This law requires that certain information be made available to a woman who is seeking an abortion at least 24 hours prior to the abortion procedure. The information is designed to provide a woman with accurate and unbiased information on the procedure she is about to undertake.  You must be 18 years of age unless a written consent of one parent/legal guardian or a judicial waiver (court order) of parental consent from probate court.  Michigan also requires verification of pregnancy and gestational age and has ultrasound requirements prior to an abortion. In addition, it is illegal for someone to pressure or coerce you to have an abortion.
