If you’ve ever visited a Planned Parenthood website, or talked with a pro-choice proponent, you may have read or heard that pro-life pregnancy help clinics aren’t actually clinics at all. Many abortion supporters mistakenly tell women that the only place they should go when faced with an unplanned pregnancy is a place like Planned Parenthood, because crisis pregnancy centers are not also medical clinics.
While there are some clinics around the country that do not offer medical services, instead only offering counseling services, Options for Women is not one of those.
We are a fully licensed medical clinic, with highly trained nurses on staff, with all actions of our clinic overseen by a licensed physician who acts as our medical director.
Every patient who comes to our clinic is seen by a skilled nurse. Our nurses give each patient a pregnancy test and provide STD testing. We have certified sonographers on staff who provide ultrasound imaging to every patient.
However, if you visit the Planned Parenthood website, this is what they will tell you:
“Deciding what to do about an unplanned pregnancy can be very complicated. It may be made even more so by so-called ‘crisis pregnancy centers.’ These are fake clinics run by people who are anti-abortion. They have a history of giving women wrong, biased information to scare them into not having abortions.”
But this just isn’t true. We are NOT a fake clinic. We never offer incorrect information, and we never, ever attempt to use scare tactics to try to “trick” our patients into having their babies.
We are absolutely a pro-life clinic. We hope to see the day when every child is wanted, and there is no longer a need for abortion. However, we take the care of each and every patient we see very seriously.
In our office, you will receive very real, compassionate care by our trained nurses. We do not perform abortions and we do not offer referrals for abortions. However, we do offer the real, complete facts on every option facing you, and that includes abortion, adoption and parenting your baby.
Planned Parenthood tells you to avoid clinics such as ours and instead offers this advice:
“If you are considering abortion, you can find a list of abortion providers on the National Abortion Federation website.”
However, if you are considering abortion, but aren’t sure it is really what you want, do you really think an abortion provider, who only profits if you decide to abort your baby, will offer unbiased information?
If you aren’t sure abortion is right for you, or if you have any questions at all concerning the abortion procedure, how it can affect your health and your future, a pregnancy help clinic such as ours is exactly where you should be.
Not only are we a true medical clinic, we offer FREE, CONFIDENTIAL and HONEST services. Because all of our services are free, you never have to wonder if we are attempting to pressure you into a decision based on monetary reasons.
Planned Parenthood says this:
“No health care provider should pressure you into a decision about your pregnancy.”
And that’s one statement we agree with.
So if faced with two medical clinics, one offering free services, another that profits off of your decision, which one do you think is truly unbiased?
For true, compassionate care, visit a center like ours. If you are facing an unplanned pregnancy and want honest answers to your questions, call Options for Women today at (863) 393-6988.
