For over 40 years, Boulder Abortion Clinic has provided women from Denver, Colorado and across the country with the highest quality abortion services.
Their purpose is to provide the safest possible abortion care and terminations of pregnancies for fetal anomalies or other indications. Abortion care is always provided in a confidential, comfortable, and dignified outpatient setting for our patients.
As an abortion clinic near Denver, CO they receive referrals from across the country and internationally.
Boulder Abortion Clinic staff know this is a difficult decision for many women and that it can be a stressful time for you. They will provide you with the help you need to come to the best choice for you. If you decide to have an abortion, their first concern is for your safety and well-being.
1st Trimester Abortion
First trimester abortion patients (up to 13 weeks) first have an ultrasound to confirm gestational age, then after counseling undergo a two-day outpatient surgical procedure using laminaria to minimize the need for cervical dilation.
2nd Trimester Abortion
Second trimester abortion patients (up to 27 weeks) also receive an ultrasound exam and counseling, then undergo a three to four day outpatient procedure.
3rd Trimester Abortion
Patients coming in for a later abortion (28 weeks and over) are often seeking services for termination of a desired pregnancy that has developed serious complications. We perform either a four-day procedure similar to our second-trimester approach, or in rare cases offer an induced fetal demise.
Our staff have extensive experience working with people who have recently discovered, late in a pregnancy, a catastrophic fetal anomaly or genetic disorder that may cause death, suffering, or serious disability for the baby that would be delivered if the pregnancy were to continue to term.
About Denver Abortion Clinics
Most women who seek abortion services at a Denver abortion clinic are in their early reproductive years and wish to have children in the future. In addition to a primary concern for patient safety and the avoidance of surgical complications, it is imperative to preserve the possibility of future reproduction for women seeking abortion services. This concern underscores my total commitment to safety in all aspects of abortion care.
At most Denver abortion clinics, there’s an increasing number of women who come to us with a desired pregnancy that has developed tragic complications (fetal disorders). In these cases, the idea of terminating the pregnancy is extremely painful, but the woman and her partner have decided that it is the best choice for the future. We are especially attuned to giving these women and their families the maximum social and emotional support that they need to get through this difficult time.
To these ends, Dr. Warren Hern has developed several techniques for late abortion and designed numerous surgical instruments; other physicians now use many of these techniques and instruments across the U.S. and around the world. Continuing research and development of the best and safest ways of terminating pregnancy has been a major goal at Boulder Abortion Clinic since Hern founded his private practice in 1975.
By its name and continued existence, Boulder Abortion Clinic makes a statement that women are free to make their own choices about their own lives, bodies, and family needs. Dr. Hern has been personally involved from the beginning of his medical career in advocacy of reproductive freedom, and he continues in this commitment.
He has survived anti-abortion harassment and violence and shown determination to provide these services in spite of everything. As a result, the Denver abortion clinic patients are protected by the highest standards of safety and security when they come to my office.
As we have recently observed the 45th Anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade decision, we know we have done our part to make the meaning of that landmark decision for human freedom a reality for our patients and their families. The true meaning of “family values” is the freedom to choose your own life and values with those you love.
