We provide compassionate, confidential care; medical information about all your options; and non-judgmental support no matter what you decide to do about your pregnancy.
Be Sure You Are Pregnant
Before an abortion we recommend a pre-abortion screening. A viable pregnancy can be confirmed through a lab grade pregnancy test and an ultrasound. Statistically, one in four pregnancies within the first trimester may not be viable and may end in a natural miscarriage.
An ultrasound will provide evidence-based confirmation and dating of your pregnancy. There are medication and surgical abortion procedures. The type of abortion procedure depends on factors such as how far along you are in your pregnancy.
Our pre-abortion screening services may include:
- Pregnancy Decision Consultation
- Lab-grade urine pregnancy test
- Ultrasound exam if test is positive
- Pregnancy test verification
- STD Testing and Treatment
Some doctors or other clinics require pregnancy verification before allowing you to make an appointment with them regarding your pregnancy. This pregnancy verification is the official document that serves as the proof of pregnancy for insurance companies, community agencies that provide services like the W.I.C. program, and will be needed if you obtain an abortion near Russell City. Please note that we do not provide abortion services at our clinics. Click Here For Medi-Cal Forms. Click Here For WIC Forms.
We recommend that you also be tested for Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs). It is very important that an infection is treated before an abortion to prevent the spread of infection during the abortion procedure.
We are here to help you understand all your options so that you can make an informed decision. If you are concerned about your financial ability to pay for a service, you may be eligible for a state-funded financial aid program that would provide services for you at no cost near Russell City.
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.
