The ZSFG Women's Options Center's mission is to offer high quality, sensitive and confidential abortion services.

We routinely provide both first- and second-trimester abortion care, including medication abortion, and have on-site ultrasound and interpretation services. Highly trained counselors provide individual counseling before procedures and are present to offer emotional support during abortions. To make sure that patients are comfortable, we offer intravenous (IV) sedation for first- and second-trimester abortion procedures. Because we are located within a trauma hospital, we have the resources to care safely for the most medically high-risk patients.
The abortion clinic provides first-trimester abortion services by aspiration as a one-day procedure through 14 weeks. We offer the abortion pill (medical abortion) up to 10 weeks. We provide second-trimester abortion services by dilation and evacuation up to 24 weeks. Second-trimester D&E abortions require two visits, one for the preoperative evaluation and cervical ripening and the second for the abortion. The abortion clinic is able to provide pregnancy termination beyond 24 weeks for pregnancies complicated by fetal anomalies with a grave prognosis or by a patient’s ill health.
Our experienced licensed nursing staff are present during and after all phases of procedures to provide the highest quality of care and support. Patients are offered contraceptive counseling, with all birth control methods available during their visit. In addition to conducting clinical research about abortion and contraception, we train future leaders in family planning.
