Many times when a woman is faced with a possible pregnancy, the options seem few. That can lead to panic and worry about what to do. Sometimes abortion seems to be the quickest solution. But is there an abortion clinic here in Pueblo? The short answer is no.
While Pueblo does not have an abortion clinic, there are local, professional resources here designed specifically to help women with a possible pregnancy. ACPC Women’s Clinic offers services such as pregnancy test, ultrasound, community referrals and information on your pregnancy options. The clinic has helped over 10,000 women since its launch in 2006 and is open Monday – Thursday for appointments. We never charge for our services.
You are not alone. We are here to equip you to make your own pregnancy choice.
What happened to the Planned Parenthood in Pueblo?
There used to be a Planned Parenthood clinic in Pueblo, but according to local news sources, the doors were closed in 2015 stating “the shopping center where the clinic is located was recently sold, and that the new owner decided not to renew Planned Parenthood’s lease.” According to KRDO, Planned Parenthood was unable to find another location to rent in the Pueblo area.
