Why Ava

 
  • Ava is here for you

    Benefits.

  • Free verification of Pregnancy

    Pregnancy tests are not always conclusive. Pregnancy tests respond to a hormone released by a pregnant woman’s body called HCG. Although your HCG levels may be showing as high, your pregnancy might not be viable, as about 20-30% of all pregnancies end in natural miscarriage. Ultrasound is the most reliable method of detecting pregnancy viability. Ava Women’s Center provides free ultrasound services.
  • FIND OUT GESTATIONAL AGE for free

    The type and cost of the abortion procedure you will be eligible to receive is dependent on the gestational age of your pregnancy. A free ultrasound exam also provides this information. You will be able to verify the accuracy of this information as we allow you to see the ultrasound if you choose.
  • PROTECT Your REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH for free

    Because of the invasive nature of an abortion (even using the abortion pill), you might want to consider your future reproductive health. An active STD may travel through your cervix (which must be opened for an abortion) and can cause Pelvic Inflammatory Disease. PID is painful and can cause infertility. At Ava, we offer free testing for two of the most common and treatable STDs. Abortion providers rarely offer this free service before an abortion.
  • SAVE yourself MONEY

    Even non-profit abortion providers, charge fees for all of their services. Non-profit abortion clinics may use a “sliding scale” payment schedule that is based on your income, but you will have fees you will have to either pay yourself, submit to insurance, or apply to Medicare.
  • Ava Women’s Center is a non-profit organization that is free for everyone, regardless of financial circumstances. We don’t need your personal information including your social security number and financial status. Abortion providers will require that personal information. We exist to provide you with accurate medical information and emotional support so you can feel comfortable enough to make an informed decision. Ava Women’s Center does not perform abortions, provide abortion provider referrals, or profit in any way from your decisions, so there is no pressure! Ava provides information and support, YOU decide.
