Having an abortion is difficult enough. If you want your experience to be truly traumatic, go to the Downtown Women's Center in Portland Oregon. There you will be rushed through, given different answers to your questions depending on who you talk to-- then you will be told you "ask too many questions." You may also be denied service based on whether a nurse "wants to work with you." The owner Tristan will pretend to be your best friend but ultimately she will cater to the whims of her temperamental staff and leave you hanging. In short, you will feel like you are dealing with a theater company or a bunch of clicky eighth-graders rather than a professional medical facility. Here's my advice: save yourself the trouble and go to Lovejoy Surgicenter. They know what they're doing.
Go to Lovejoy Surgicenter directly. They will respect your right to be fully informed and treat you with the kindness, patience, respect and compassion that you need and deserve at this difficult juncture in your life. But don't judge a book by its cover--Lovejoy is not much to look at and when you're already a little prone to freaking out it might send you into a spin. Deep breath, this place is very professional. Don't expect much from the admin or counseling staff (what they call counseling was informed consent at best, there is no preparation for the emotional aspects) but the doctors are top notch. The nurses were very helpful and the on-call head nurse "Joy" is an absolute angel. They know what they're doing. If this place had full time, well-paid counselors on staff and a little fresh paint on the walls, it would be almost perfect.
