At Home Abortions
CONSIDERING AN AT HOME ABORTION?
Since the inauguration on January 20, 2017 we have had many phone calls asking if abortion is still legal in Michigan. IT IS STILL LEGAL. And we are here to provide compassionate, safe abortion care with the dignity and respect you deserve.
We know that restrictive laws in the United States have made it increasingly difficult for some women to access safe, effective and medically-proven abortion care. We also know that more women are searching the internet for at home abortion remedies on how to have a miscarriage. Some self-induced abortion methods, like the abortion pill, can be safe and effective. Other methods may be ineffective or even dangerous. We are able to care for you safely, legally and effectively at one of our three Michigan locations in the metro Detroit area. We offer both medication abortion and surgical abortion options to meet your needs. We even have funding available for those women who face a financial burden and qualify for financial assistance.
If you have already tried an at-home abortion or tried to force a miscarriage, we can still help you! Our clinics offer safe, compassionate, and confidential care. It is in your best interest to be seen by a doctor who is an expert in abortion. Home abortion may still be an option using our medication abortion pill. If a pregnancy has stopped growing, we offer miscarriage management, as well. We care about you so please call us and have a conversation.
AT HOME ABORTIONS: ABORTION PILLS AND HOME REMEDIES FOR ABORTION
When abortion is put out of reach by politicians, some women will find safe methods to end a pregnancy and some women will resort to methods that are dangerous, ineffective, or life threatening. Politicians should not stand in the way of women having a range of safe, affordable methods of abortion care available to them.
We hear that more women are attempting to buy pills online to end their pregnancies; however, when you buy pills from the internet YOU DO NOT KNOW what you are really getting. While rare, if you experience an ectopic pregnancy (a pregnancy in which the fertilized egg implants outside the uterus) and it is not properly diagnosed and treated by a physician, it could be life-threatening.
There are also many stories and tales about vitamins, herbs, supplements, spices and foods that can be taken to end a pregnancy. However, these remedies have not been proven to be safe and effective by medical experts, and can delay your access to safe, effective, and early abortion care. We have seen firsthand that when they fail to work, some at home remedies can cause severe bleeding or other potentially serious complications.
For women who wish to end their pregnancy and avoid a surgical procedure, our clinics offer medication abortion to women who are 10 weeks pregnant or less. We provide the FDA-approved medication, which has been proven by medical evidence to be extremely safe and effective. When these medications are used correctly, they are 97% successful at ending an early pregnancy. Click here for more about medication abortion or give us a call.
WHAT IF YOU HAVE ATTEMPTED A SELF-INDUCED AT HOME ABORTION OR TRIED TO FORCE A MISCARRIAGE ON PURPOSE?
If you have already tried home remedies and are nervous or scared about what might be happening or you don’t think it worked—it’s OK. Call our office; you can be honest with us. Schedule an appointment for one of our physicians to evaluate your situation. We understand, we don’t judge, and we are here for you.
Please note that although no criminal laws for self-induced abortion exist in Michigan today, that can change at any time.
