Abortion

HC_Kristen&Miles-0023.jpg

An unexpected pregnancy can ignite feelings of hopelessness, panic and paralyzing fear. A sense of urgency to make a decision is normal, but we encourage you to take a deep breath and become fully informed about your choices. We believe in the sanctity of human life, including your own life.  We know an unplanned pregnancy isn't an ideal situation, so there often isn't an ideal solution. While we do not perform or refer abortions, our trained medical staff (registered nurses and nurse practitioners overseen by medical doctors) listen, answer your questions, show you hope and let you know that you are not alone. We are here to inform, support and encourage, but you are ultimately making the decision that is healthiest for you. We at Hope Clinic want to invest in your overall well-being and to walk with you through this detour in your life journey.  

Most Frequently Asked Questions:

  • What is the abortion law in Tennessee? 
    • It is legal to have an abortion in Tennessee up until 16 weeks. After the initial appointment, there is a 48 hour waiting period before an abortion can be performed. 
  • Will I be put to sleep?
    • No, you will not be put to sleep during the procedure. 
  • What is the Morning After Pill/Plan B One-Step Pill?
    • It is essentially a large dose of birth control in one pill and must be taken within 24 hours of unprotected sex to be most effective. It is not an abortion pill and therefore does not cause a miscarriage or abortion.
