Be Sure You Are Pregnant
Our pregnancy decision support and pre abortion screening services include: an options consultation, a lab grade pregnancy test, and an ultrasound exam to confirm the viability of your pregnancy if you have a positive pregnancy test. 1 in 5 pregnancies end in miscarriage, so if no fetal heartbeat is detected you may not need an abortion procedure.

There are medication and surgical abortion procedures. The types of abortions available depend on factors such as how far along you are in your pregnancy. It’s important for you to determine what is best for you, now and in the future. We recommend you be tested for Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD’s.) If you have a sexually transmitted infection it should be treated before an abortion to prevent the spread of infection during an abortion procedure.
We are here to help you understand all your options so that you can make an informed decision. Please note that we are not an abortion clinic.
Welcome to Russell City Russell City (also known as Russell) was an unincorporated community in Hayward, Alameda County, California, USA, about 10 miles (16 km) south of Oakland in present-day Hayward. The land is at an elevation of 16 feet (5 m). The city was named after Frederick James Russell, who laid out the town in 1907. It existed from 1853 until 1964, when the last of the residents were forced out to make way for an industrial park, with such parks dominating the area to this day. During the time the residents fought removal under eminent domain statutes, many of the buildings were destroyed by acts of arson.
The city was an arrival point for immigrants to the San Francisco Bay Area. During and after World War II it had its largest growth period, with significant numbers of African Americans moving there from the South. The city had a history of blues music and this heritage is the basis for the annual Hayward/Russell City Blues Festival.
Russell City also had a large Latino community made up of Mexicans and Puerto Ricans. Many Latinos immigrated to Russell City during World War II. Some were braceros and others shipyard workers at Todd Shipyards and Kaiser Shipyards in Richmond. Ernesto Nava, son of the famous Mexican revolutionary leader Pancho Villa, lived in Russell City and was one of the last residents to leave.
