Most states allow for an elective abortion up until the pregnancy is viable, when the embryo is considered a fetus, which is usually the 20 week mark. If the abortion is for the mothers health it may be extended. If you are a minor, Georgia has a law that parents must be informed, but they do not have to give consent at least 24 hours before the abortion. Also, all women getting an abortion must go through counseling and a 24 hour waiting period before the abortion. I have included a link below of clinics that do abortion in Georgia, however I do not know how reputable they are since some of them state that they do abortions up to 26 weeks which seems way past the point of viability.

You should call Planned Parenthood, but in general, they can do an abortion up to 14 weeks pregnancy. They are only certified to perform 1st trimester abortions. If you are further along than that, they would have to refer you to a gyn and you would go to the hospital. I believe, but am not sure, that states regulate 2nd trimester and later abortions, but those are done in a hospital. Most later abortions are typically done due to a medical condition in either mother or baby. Planned Parenthood can likely refer you. Last I read, an abortion in my area is $500 whether chemical or surgical.

If this is your choice, you need to do it as soon as possible, the longer you wait the more problems there will be in the future. I suggest talking with someone before you are completely 100% for sure-they have guidance counselors at planned parenthood and at other agency who deal soley with pregancy related issues. You can get abortion information and assistance at Planned Parenthood and other family planning centers, women's health centers, youth centers, and departments of health or social services. Or you can call the National Abortion Federation hotline: 1-800-772-9100. To make an appointment with the Planned Parenthood center nearest you for information about abortion and your other pregnancy options, call toll-free 1-800-230-PLAN. Abortion Options Early in pregnancy, you have two options for ending a pregnancy — medication abortion or abortion by vacuum aspiration. (The information about procedures is presented alphabetically.) Medication abortion is the use of medicine to end a pregnancy. Vacuum aspiration is the use of gentle suction to end pregnancy. Pregnancy is usually dated from the first day of the last menstrual cycle. You may choose medication abortion if you are early enough in pregnancy — this may be defined as up to 49, 56, or 63 days, depending on how the medicine is taken. After 63 days, vacuum aspiration is your only abortion option during the first trimester, which is calculated as the first 14 weeks after the first day of a woman's last menstrual period. After the first trimester, dilation and evacuation (D&E) is the most common abortion procedure. In a D&E, the cervix is slowly stretched open. The procedure is completed by emptying the uterus using a combination of suction and medical instruments. Another option, induction — in which premature labor is induced with various medicines — is not widely available. Abortion Contraindications Medication Abortion You should not have medication abortion if you * are too far along in pregnancy * are unsure about having the procedure * are unwilling to have a vacuum aspiration if needed * cannot return for follow-up visits * do not have access to a telephone, transportation, and back-up medical care * have a known or suspected molar pregnancy — one in which the placenta develops abnormally * have severe adrenal gland, heart, kidney, or liver problems * take any medicine that should not be combined with the medications used in medication abortion — methotrexate, mifepristone, or misoprostol * take anti-clotting medication or have blood-clotting disorders * are unwilling to have your IUD — if you have one — removed before taking the medicine Special considerations may be necessary if you * are breastfeeding * have chronic heart, liver, respiratory, or kidney disease * have an infection or are sick * have severe anemia * have uncontrolled high blood pressure * have any other serious health problem Vacuum Aspiration and D&E You should not have vacuum aspiration or D&E if you * are unsure about having the procedure Special considerations may be necessary if you * are extremely overweight * are running a fever * have an infection in your uterus * have certain kinds of sexually transmitted infections * have certain serious health problems * have problems with anesthesia * have seizures more than once a week Effectiveness Medication Abortion There are two types of medication abortion offered in the U.S. — mifepristone medication abortion and methotrexate medication abortion. Mifepristone and methotrexate affect the body differently. Mifepristone is used more often than methotrexate because it is more effective and more predictable. Mifepristone is 96-97 percent effective. Methotrexate is about 92-96 percent effective. Some of the medicines used in medication abortion may cause serious birth defects if pregnancy continues. So, if they don't work, vacuum aspiration should be done. Vacuum Aspiration and D&E Vacuum aspiration and D&E abortion are more than 99 percent effective. Failure to end a pregnancy can happen due to unusual conditions: there can be more than one chamber in the uterus, or the pregnancy may not be in the uterus. Repeated aspiration or other treatment may be needed if the initial procedure does not end the pregnancy. Comparing Risks If you choose abortion, you will also want to compare the benefits, risks, and side effects of each of your options. For example, both medication abortion and early vacuum aspiration are extremely safe. But current data suggest that medication abortion may carry a higher risk of death than early vacuum aspiration abortion. Even so, both procedures are much safer than abortion later in pregnancy or carrying a pregnancy to term. Some women prefer medication abortion because they feel its benefits outweigh its risks. Other women prefer vacuum aspiration abortion because they feel its benefits outweigh its risks. Your clinician can help you decide, but the choice is up to you.

legally planned parenthood does it up to 16 weeks after that it has to be a life threating reason why your terminating the pregnancy which has to be done by your doctor, the cost varies depending on how far along you are but you looking at a price of $500 or more and your insurance might cover it, visit plannedparenthood.org to see if there is a clinic near you

Call planned parenthood for the details instead of asking people on the internet. It is a far to sensative and personal subject to be asking in this manner. I am not religious but use protection next time.

Honestly i do not know but i would think by the end of your first trimester which is 14wks. DONT listen to anyone who is mean to you here! This is your choice you need to do what is best for you and the child and if not having the child is the best choice it is the best choice! Sometimes to save a life one must be given up. I would contact a planned parenthood or if it is more comfortable for you speak with your gynecologist he/she will know who does them some insurances do cover them! you may even have the choice of going under and going to sleep. DO WHAT IS BEST FOR YOU! Good Luck and many blessings regardless of choice it is your life and you will do the right thing which is whichever you decide is best for you!

I think the latest is 20 weeks in most states, however you should know by that time your child already has it's genitals, fingers, toes, etc. My son was stillborn at 18 weeks and trust me- it's a child. I'm also pro-choice, but the longer you wait the more cruel you are being. I've never heard of a regular gynecologist giving an abortion. Look for an abortion clinic or planned parenthood.

as long as your in your 1st trimester your good. so as long as your not more than 3months pregnant you can have it done. I am no fan of it but i dont judge what others choose to do with their life and/or body. You could look up adoption as well maybe that would be more appealing to you if your uncomfortable with this whole situation. good luck on this! also from what i understand, it will run you anywhere from 500 to 600 dollars insurance will NOT cover abortions and ppl she asked for advice not a prayer session

Popular Q&A

Is abortion moral or medical?
Abortion is a medical procedure (obviously) But, it is morally wrong. When does a baby become a human? That should be an easy answer. It becomes a human the moment it is conceived. Thus, to abort that baby is equal to murder, which is morally wrong. If a baby does not become a human the moment...

How much for an abortion in Pittsburgh, PA?
It costs between $360 - $400 for a first-trimester abortion. The phone number for the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Pittsburgh is 412-432-8957. Your health insurance may cover the cost.

Do you think that the abortion cut off line should be lowered??
I think abortion should be banned. You don-t have a right to kill an innocent baby just because it doesn't have the right to vote or property. Abortion may be allowed only when the mother's life is in danger. Can a mother or a doctor kill a newborn baby legally just because it was born out...

Roe v wade?
Technically, Roe vs. Wade did not make abortion itself legal or illegal. That case just made it illegal for anyone to question what a woman did with her own body, short of committing suicide. It kind of tiptoed around the whole question of abortion. Roe vs. Wade is about the right to privacy...

What can you expect after abortion?
personally I don't agree with abortion, but all the same I am pro choice. The hormone change and loss of the baby can cause depression just like with a miscarriage. I don't know anything about like sex or anything like that but I know a lot of women suffer emotionally. Best of luck! Make sure...
