Choices will never turn a patient away simply because she can’t afford an abortion. If you're one of the many women wondering, "Where can I get a free abortion?" staff members will help create a financial plan that suits each patient’s individual circumstances, because no patient should have to compromise the quality of her health care due to her economic status.
Choices is committed to helping ALL women obtain abortions, even those from states with restrictive abortion laws. Our Out-of-Town program is designed to encourage and support women from other states to come to our abortion clinic to carry out their reproductive decisions. We accept Medicaid from New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Delaware, and will help patients arrange affordable transportation and hotel accommodations. We are affiliated with Haven Coalition, a volunteer organization that provides an escort for patients to and from an abortion.
Choices has obtained the highest accreditation from AAAHC, the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, and is regulated by the Department of Health.
