Abortion is a very touchy subject not only in Singapore but all over the world. The battle between pro-choice and pro-life has been raging on for quite some time now. But whether it is considered illegal and murderous or a way to control population and health of the woman is still debatable. Until there is a clear and definitive legislate on this, abortion centers will still be operating and likewise will still be targets of pro-choice community. Abortion clinics in Singapore and all over the country still battle against vandalism, ridicule and of course threats on a daily basis.
But if you do choose to get this procedure and terminate your pregnancy, you should know how to choose the right facility. This is imperative in that not all abortion clinics in Singapore and other parts of the country are reliable and credible. Here are some tips and suggestions so that you get the best care when you opt for an abortion.
Ask for legal documents to operate such a clinic. It is important that they are licensed and that they have the necessary papers. This will ensure your safety and your legal accountabilities. Let’s face it getting an abortion is not a popular course of action. But if you choose to get one, it would be best to get it from someone who is medically qualified.
Visit several clinics and compare them. Of course cost is a crucial comparison but compare other points as well. First, check out their facilities. Is it clean and organized? Is the clinic complete with all the necessary equipment? Do they have the right number of staff? You should also know if their employees have the right credentials. Most importantly, are they equipped to handle emergencies should anything bad happens to you during the procedure.
Talk to different people especially those who have gotten such a procedure. Doctors, health care professionals and counselors are all great sources of information. The right information can help you decide where to get an abortion (or even talk you out of having one). It is important that you know what will happen prior, during and after the abortion so you can prepare you self mentally and physically.
Singapore abortion clinics and everywhere in the world have the obligation to keep you safe. But it’s up to you to decide whether you’ll get an abortion or not.
