Effective October 14, 2002, The State of Alabama passed “The Woman’s Right to Know” Act that requires all women seeking an abortion receive specific information at least 24 hours prior to their procedure. At West Alabama Women’s Center you may come in person to the clinic or request the information be sent to you by registered mail. The patient must sign for the package and wait until the green return receipt is received back at the clinic before an appointment may be scheduled. This process takes approximately 7-10 days depending on the location where the package is mailed. The fee is $25.00 to cover the cost of materials and postage, but requires the patient only one trip to the clinic to have the abortion.
Appointments may be scheduled six days a week Monday thru Friday 8:00 am -5:00 pm and Saturday 8:00 am -12:00 pm. Abortions can be scheduled for mornings and afternoons on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and mornings on Saturday. The 24 hours state mandatory counseling may be scheduled for the same days and times.
West Alabama Women’s Center provides the highest quality abortion services at affordable prices because you deserve it. We can provide services at a lower cost due to lower overhead expenses. Having a local physician prevents paying traveling expenses, hotels, etc and allows us to pass the savings back to you.
The staff and management of West Alabama Women’s Center feel that if “we price the abortion procedure so high a woman can not afford it, then we are taking away your choice”. West Alabama Women’s Center offers health care you can trust.
The cost of the abortion is based on how far along you are in your pregnancy. Pregnancy is measured from the first day of your last normal menstrual period and ultrasound will be done to confirm the accuracy of your number of weeks since your last menstrual date.
