providing expert, confidential, and respectful abortion care. Our

Additionally, it is inspected annually and meets or exceeds all
standards for patient care set forth by the Texas Health Department.
The abortion clinic uses the latest technology to meet the highest

Aalto Women’s Center was developed
with the patients’ needs in mind: to provide a warm, secure,
comfortable environment in which patients can feel at ease.
The facility is conveniently located in a private, 8-story office
building on the Southwest Freeway, in the Houston Galleria area,
within easy access of most major highways. Free covered parking
is available to all patients.

scheduled daily, Monday through Saturday, usually in the mornings.
We suggest that you call two (2) days ahead of the day you plan
to come for your abortion procedure.

law require a 24-hour waiting period before you can have an abortion.
