About 61% of abortions are obtained by women who have one or more children.
Women who obtain abortions represent every religious affiliation, race and financial status
The birth control pill is one of most effective non-permanent methods of contraception – nearly 100% effective in preventing pregnancy.
The reasons women give for having an abortion underscore their understanding of the responsibilities of parenthood and family life.
“Whole Woman’s Health offers care for women, by women. We provide an unparalleled patient-centered setting where the focus is on the whole woman—her body, heart, and mind.”
Whole Woman’s Health is a privately-owned feminist organization, committed to providing holistic care for women. We are a group of women’s clinics providing comprehensive gynecology services, including abortion care. It is our philosophy that each woman must be at the center of her own healthcare decisions, and that treating each woman holistically— honoring her head and her heart as well as her body — will better serve women and improve women’s health and happiness in our communities.
Our facilities are run by an outstanding team of Board Certified and licensed physicians, counselors, medical assistants, and patient advocates. All our facilities are accredited by the National Abortion Federation and we are members of the Abortion Care Network. We are proud to be a woman-owned, woman-centered, progressive business.
Whole Woman’s Health was founded in 2003 by Amy Hagstrom Miller, who saw a need in our communities for a more holistic model of healthcare. “Abortion and other reproductive decisions are not simply medical matters,” says Hagstrom Miller. “When a woman makes a decision about her pregnancy and her body, she undergoes an intense evaluation of her beliefs, identity, goals and dreams for the future.
Since its founding in Austin TX, Whole Woman’s Health has opened seven facilities nationwide, and sees more than 30,000 women a year for reproductive healthcare. We are extremely active in politics, training and education within the communities we serve. Please feel free to contact us at our administrative headquarter offices located in Austin, TX and/or Charlottesville, VA.
We are committed to destigmatizing abortion and creating safe spaces for all people whether its within our clinics or in the communities they live in. As such, we have created an Whole Woman’s Health Abortion 101 Program for advocates, activists, community partners, state legislators, media, medical professionals and staff that is giving at any of our Whole Woman’s Health locations throughout the country. This program serves as a way to experientially go through the process of what a woman would experience when faced with an unplanned pregnancy. By deconstructing the nuanced conflicts, emotions, language and conversations surrounding abortion, it is our philosophy that this will help people empathize and help shift the way that people talk about abortion.
