Why Your First Look?
Here are four good reasons* why Your First Look is your best, first choice if you are considering abortion:
1. Verify Pregnancy at No Cost to You
A pregnancy test is not conclusive. The test responds to a hormone your body releases when you are pregnant, called HCG. However, close to one-third of all pregnancies end in natural miscarriage. Though your HCG levels may still be high, you may not have a viable pregnancy. Ultrasound is the earliest means of detecting a viable pregnancy. Your First Look provides ultrasound services at no cost to you.
2. Find out Gestational Age at No Cost to You
The gestational age of your pregnancy will determine the type and cost of the abortion procedure you would be eligible to receive. Ultrasound also provides this information at no cost to you. You will know this information is accurate as we allow you to see the ultrasound if you so choose.
3. Protect Reproductive Health at No Cost to You
Because abortion is invasive (even using the RU486 abortion pills), consider your future reproductive health. If you have an STD, it may travel through your cervix (which must be opened for an abortion). This could cause PID (Pelvic Inflammatory Disease), which is not only painful, but could cause infertility. We test for the two most common and treatable STD’s–at no charge to you. Most abortion providers may not offer this service prior to your abortion.
4. Save Money
Abortion providers, even those that are non-profit, charge for all services. Though non-profits use a “sliding scale” based on your income, you will have to pay out of pocket. Medicare does not cover abortions in Ohio or Michigan and most insurance companies also do not cover abortion procedures.
Your First Look is a non-profit organization, and is free and confidential for everyone–no matter what your circumstances. We don’t require your social security number or your financial status. Abortion providers require both. We are here to assist you with accurate medical information and important facts so you can make an informed decision. Because we do not preform or refer for abortion or profit from any choice you make, there is no pressure. We inform, you decide.
Your First Look is your best, first choice if you are experiencing an unplanned pregnancy and are considering an abortion. Knowledge is power.
