Executive Summary for Fetal Indication Termination of Pregnancy Program
Internet Support & Discussion Group

If you are reading this information, you have received devastating news regarding your pregnancy: a serious or lethal health problem has been diagnosed. We recognize that you are sad and concerned about the diagnosis and this has come as unexpected news. You may, based on the information provided by your doctor or genetics counselor, elect to end your pregnancy early due to the serious medical problem explained to you. At Women's Health Care Services, we offer Fetal Indication Termination of Pregnancy consultation and care.

We recognize your decision to come to our center is distressing. We understand that many of our patients are experiencing the most difficult situation of their lives. All of our services are oriented around our philosophy that the easy part of the process is the premature delivery of a stillborn -- the hard part is saying goodbye to the hopes, dreams and relationships that you have with your baby.

Kindness, courtesy, justice, love, and respect are the cornerstones of our patient-provider relationships. Our outstanding reputation for high quality abortion care is the result of our dedication to providing professional, respectful, and confidential health care services.


Admission Criteria
In order to offer you an appointment, we require that a physician refer you to our center. In addition, we need your genetic counselor or doctor to provide us with gestational and diagnostic information regarding your pregnancy. Over the past twenty-five years, we have had experience with pregnancy terminations in such situations as anencephaly, Trisomy 13, 18, and 21, polycystic kidney disease, spina bifida, hydrocephalus, Potter's syndrome, lethal dwarfism, holoprosencephaly, anterior and posterior encephalocele, non-immune hydrops, and a variety of other very significant abnormalities.

Informed Consent
The Kansas abortion law requires that we provide information known as "informed consent" to our patients. Informed consent is comprised of information from our physicians, along with State of Kansas publications. One of our counselors will arrange to provide you with the required paperwork in advance of your appointment.
