ABORTION

The United States Supreme Court has ruled that abortions are legal in the entire United States through the 6th month of pregnancy. This includes Guam, Saipan and the CNMI, plus the bases in Japan and Korea . We have an ultrasound at the clinic to determine the exact duration of pregnancy. Abortions can be accomplished through the sixth month of pregnancy – and there is rarely a need to be in the hospital. General anesthesia is available… asleep or awake. Call the clinic in Guam at (671) 649-7539 or (671) 649-4496 and additional information can be faxed up to you. Our clinic is a 5 minute ride by taxi from the Guam International Airport.

A few do's and dont's:

  • please do not bring children to the clinic
  • nothing to eat or drink after midnight the night before surgery (and the morning of surgery)
  • you will be a bit dizzy after anesthesia. Have someone to drive you home. Wear flat shoes (no high heels!)
  • remove all piercings and loose fittings (dentures, braces, gum) from your mouth
  • check your blood type if it has been previously determined
  • always call in advance for an appointment – the doctor might not be at the clinic when you arrive
