Abortion? Why Have an Ultrasound First?

The Importance of an Ultrasound

If you are considering an abortion, it is important that you have an ultrasound first. An ultrasound will help you accurately know the gestation of the fetus (which is important before any medical procedure), and it will give you a chance to make a your own decision. You know this choice could be very hard. You want to do what is right. You want to do what is best for your future. The best place to start  is by getting more information. Start with an ultrasound. 

  • Ultrasound are medically important. Even if you are considering abortion, determining the age of the fetus is important to know what medical procedure you will need.
  • Ultrasounds help you emotionally. Knowing exactly what you are doing before you do it, is helpful emotionally. Instead of regret and emotional pain, seeing the full truth before your abortion may help you avoid doing something you really don’t want to.
  • Ultrasounds help make good decisions. You want to make the right decision for you and your future. Getting an ultrasound will help you do that. Your decision should be made with all the information possible.

How do I get the “right” ultrasound? There are different types of ultrasounds now available but what is more important is making sure the ultrasound is performed by the right person. The ultrasound needs to be done by a licensed nurse or doctor who is available to explain the images on the screen. Sometimes, if you are getting an ultrasound in a place that also performs abortions, the sonographer may not want you to see the baby. If you insist, they may show you only quick, unrecognizable images. If this is the case, leave. You can find a location what will share with you the information you need so you can make the right decision based on all the facts. Fortunately, at Spero we can provide an ultrasound free of charge.
