Certification: Woman's Right to Know ActWe offer all the information required by the Woman's Right to Know Act.
According to North Carolina state law, women considering abortion must have an informed consent certification signed by a doctor, nurse, or certified ultrasound technician. These women must be given the alternatives to abortion in writing, as well as be offered an ultrasound. We offer this certification at the Care Center, and are the only organization in Guilford County to offer free ultrasound services. It is, by law, the first step to getting an abortion in North Carolina. If you’re considering abortion, set up your appointment for this certification today.
