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.

The EmpowerLine’s Women’s Health Advocate is most often the first person a potential patient speaks to about her abortion, thus she/he is a very important ambassador for Whole Woman’s Health. Throughout all of these interactions, the Women’s Health Advocate must maintain a warm, non-judgmental attitude. S/he will provide guidance to callers by answering questions, setting appointments, providing financial counseling, and anticipating patient needs prior to arrival at the clinic.
The Whole Woman’s Health philosophy is centered on caring for the whole woman – her head, heart, and body. The Women’s Health Advocate integrates this philosophy in her/his approach by using active listening skills, ‘reading between the lines’ when the patient speaks to affirm/assess her patient’s needs, feelings about, abilities to cope with, and understanding of the abortion process. Women’s Health Advocates understand that patients may not know everything about this experience and so it is our responsibility to be forthcoming with information and guide her through this process with empathy and kindness.
The Women’s Health Advocate plays a key role in the practice as s/he may interact with the patient in many capacities before, during, and after her time with us in the clinic. Comprehension of our patient management software and office practices is essential to patient satisfaction and the success of the practice.
To assure that the Women’s Health Advocate is supplying the patient the necessary information or emotional support, s/he must remain informed and knowledgeable on new procedures, techniques, practice philosophies, and the counselor’s own capabilities. The Women’s Health Advocate will be held to retention of new information brought forth in staff meetings, trainings, and other daily correspondences. This person must also be very familiar with all of the resources that are available to our patients – articles, journals, workbooks, web sites, referrals, statistics, etc.
Must possess the ability and capability to perform any task in the office. Must be able to lift 15 lbs or more and be able to physically move through the office unaided. Must have strong hearing and visual acuity.
Must possess the ability to remain seated and review information on a computer screen for long periods of time.
