Why You Should Avoid Cheap Abortions
You can spend days into weeks calling around to find low-cost, “cheap” abortions. Just keep in mind, the time you spend doing this pushes the length of pregnancy further out, costing you more money and less access, if you decide to terminate.
Plus, the old saying, “You get what you pay for” is a common expression that we’ve heard from new patients. If you can get something cheap, it probably isn’t very good. This applies to healthcare, and specifically, abortion care.
We understand that for most patients, cost is a huge concern. It is often one of the reasons for deciding to have an abortion in the first place. When a patient calls a clinic and hears a fee that seems high, they naturally, try to find a clinic with the cheapest fees for an abortion.
At Reproductive Health Servies (RHS) we get it and we feel you deserve better than this.
We have witnessed first hand the very real costs (emotionally and physically) of choosing an abortion clinic that is cheap, hides costs, and takes shortcuts. We don’t want that for you. You should demand the same high-quality experience with your abortion that you would want for any other medical procedure. RHS can provide you with that, and also potentially help you with the cost.
Over the years, the cost of healthcare in general in the United States has risen drastically. You probably know this, and you probably feel it in your wallet just like we do. In so many cases people just don’t know and are not told what kind of costs they might incur with any procedure.
This is the ridiculous state of American healthcare. And yet, the cost of an abortion has remained relatively stable for the last 20 years—even in the face of abortion providers dealing with more and more extremely expensive restrictions laws.
Not to mention the costs on your end of the abortion, most of which likely have nothing to do with the actual procedure itself. Anti-abortion zealots and organizations that introduce and support the costly abortion restrictions is what often times ends up costing you, our patient, money and stress you may not have planned on.
For example, the state of Alabama requires 48 Hours waiting period. Patient has to make 2 appointments – one, initial visit with ultrasound and state mandated reading material; second day, your procedure will take place.
Some women have to drive much further to a clinic because there are not any other choices close to them (which might entail an overnight stay in a hotel), and having to take time off of work and pay for childcare all factor into your out-of-pocket costs.
