NOTE: No parental notification or consent is required for abortion at Hope Clinic. Patients are able to make their own decisions about abortion and involve the people they trust most.
We want young people to feel fully supported when an unexpected pregnancy happens. We know this can be a difficult time and it can be hard to talk about abortion. Our experienced educators/counselors can assist you with these challenging conversations.
Special resources do exist for young people that are pregnant: Right By You, a text line for young people in Missouri that offers information about how to access abortion care, prenatal care and birth care, and finding support for parenting or placing a child for adoption. The text line also answers questions about pregnancy prevention and navigating pregnancy scares. Trained volunteers answer young people’s questions with compassion and validation. The text line responds to texts live during limited weekday hours, and young people can text any time and will receive a response during the next live shift. Text 855-458-0866 and visit rightbyyou.org
