Do I have to tell my parents?

By pcadmin on 3/4/2015

While state laws vary, if you are under 18 the laws of the state where you are seeking an abortion, not the state you live in, will apply.  In Maryland, the law states that if you are under 18 years old, one parent (or legal guardian) must be notified of your decision to have an abortion prior to the procedure. However, you may qualify for an exception in the professional judgment of the abortion provider.1 You can see our previous blog post about more details regarding parental notification.

Should I get STD tested before an abortion?

By pcadmin on 2/2/2015
At the Pregnancy Clinic, we recommend STD testing prior to abortion to prevent undiagnosed STDs from spreading farther into the reproductive system.1 At most abortion clinics, STD testing prior to an abortion is not a routine procedure.2  Also, the abortion clinic may charge additional fees for testing.

Why should I come to the Pregnancy Clinic instead of taking a home test?

The Pregnancy Clinic offers a free laboratory grade pregnancy test. While at-home tests may be very accurate, they can be mishandled or misread. Additionally, a pregnancy test cannot determine if your pregnancy is viable, (meaning living).
