About 61% of abortions are obtained by women who have one or more children.
The birth control pill is one of most effective non-permanent methods of contraception – nearly 100% effective in preventing pregnancy.
Women who obtain abortions represent every religious affiliation, race and financial status
The reasons women give for having an abortion underscore their understanding of the responsibilities of parenthood and family life.
In the Summer of 2013, the Texas legislature passed a law, House Bill 2, that was designed to eliminate safe abortion access to women and families throughout the state of Texas. Unfortunately, because of these restrictions of HB2, we have had to stop providing care in Austin and Beaumont. We thank you for all your support and please visit us at one of our existing clinics in: Baltimore, Minneapolis, Fort Worth, McAllen, and San Antonio.
