Abortion Care Clinic at ZSFG

San Francisco General’s abortion clinic provides both first- and second-trimester abortion care, including pill abortion (medication abortion). Highly trained counselors provide individual counseling before procedures and are present to offer emotional support during abortions. We offer intravenous (IV) sedation for first- and second-trimester abortions. Because we are located within a trauma hospital, we have the resources to care safely for the most medically high-risk patients. We have on-site ultrasound and interpreter services, and staff who are bilingual in Spanish and Cantonese. Patients are offered contraceptive counseling, with all birth control methods available during their visit. Our experienced licensed nursing staff are present during and after all phases of abortion services to provide the highest quality of care and support. In addition to conducting clinical research about abortion and contraception, we train future leaders in family planning. As part of UCSF’s abortion and family planning care division, we pride ourselves on our safe, respectful, person-centered, evidence-based abortion services, with high levels of individual support.
