The Women's Centers (Various locations)

Mission: 

The Women's Centers (Atlanta, Georgia) offer above standard abortion care to pregnant people throughout their pregnancies. We are preparing to increase our practice to include third trimester care. We offer patient centered care where patients are looked at as whole beings full of intricate needs beyond an abortion-we strive to meet those needs 6 days a week at our medical centers or by phone at our Advocacy Center which runs daily, thru snow storms and holidays.
