As your other respondents have stated, the sooner the better... and hon, don't let some dooooo gooder guy talk you out of it.... only you can decide, and you have every right to do so. The dark ages of having to stay pregnant are over, and it is only in the Fundamentalist Christian corner that would like to rule your life. I'd have one anytime. The best time is during the first trimester, and in that period, the sooner the better. (first three months). Legal anywhere before 24 weeks, legal anywhere almost at any time, just more difficult on you.,,, go for it hon.

Here’s my opinion! Dear Alice, I have just found out that I am one week pregnant. My boyfriend and I both agree that it is not the time for this. We do not have the money for an abortion. Is there any way to safely force a miscarriage? Dear Reader, Trained, qualified health care providers safely terminate pregnancies since there is no safe way to induce (or force) a miscarriage on your own. Before abortion was legalized in the United States as a choice for women in 1973, millions of women tried "do-it- yourself" methods or visited "back-alley doctors" to end unwanted pregnancies. Thousands died, and many more were permanently injured. It's important not to let money stand in the way of your health care. Abortion costs vary depending on the setting — clinics, such as Planned Parenthood, tend to be less expensive (some even have sliding scale fees)- private hospitals and doctor's offices usually are more expensive. If you are at a university, funds for this type of procedure may also be available. Many private health insurance plans pay for some or all of the expenses. Medicaid covers the cost of abortion in some, but not all, states. The National Network of Abortion Funds provides a listing of community abortion funds throughout the U.S. These funds provide financial aid to help low income women obtain an abortion. Their toll-free hotline is 1.800.772.9100. First trimester abortions (abortions up to the thirteenth week of pregnancy) typically cost between $300 - 400. Since you are about one week along in your pregnancy, you may also have a choice between a medical/chemical abortion using Mifepristone (formerly known as RU-486) and a surgical abortion. A health care provider will be able to give you additional info (or you can check on your own). As the pregnancy progresses, pregnancy terminations become more expensive and providers more difficult to find, as risks and complications from the procedure also increase. Pregnant and Undecided in Alice's Sexual Health archive explains how abortions are performed and also gives other related info and options. You can get information on crisis pregnancy counseling in your area through Planned Parenthood at 1.800.230.PLAN (-7526). Fortunately, women in the U.S. today, even those with low income, have various options and resources available to them. http://www.goaskalice.columbia.edu/1984.... Dear Alice, I am nineteen-years-old. I just found out that I'm pregnant. I have been with the guy for two years and in college for one year. We are not financially stable. We have given it a lot of thought, but still do not know what to do. I have looked at the pros and cons and still I'm not sure. I have three little sisters and know that raising children is a hard job. Throughout this time I have leaned more toward the abortion, but don't feel like I know enough about it. Can you please HELP? Thanks, Undecided Dear Undecided, Alice is pleased that you're looking for the information you need to make your decision because this decision has a time limit. If you do not reach one within a certain amount of time, it will be made for you. Clinically, abortion is a safe and simple procedure when carried out legally by licensed and specially trained doctors and some nurse practitioners with sterile and proper instruments. If you decide to have an abortion, it is best to do so within the first trimester (first three months) — this is when an abortion is safer, easier, and less expensive. You may have a hard time finding someone to perform a second trimester abortion- and, third trimester abortions are only performed when your life is seriously threatened by the pregnancy, or if you need to be treated for a life-threatening disease with a medication that would be toxic to the pregnancy. Most surgical abortions take anywhere from five to fifteen minutes. The most common technique, aspiration, involves inserting a small tube, that is attached to a source of gentle suction, which draws the pregnancy tissue out from the uterus through the cervix. You can choose local (you're awake) or general anesthesia. This type of abortion is done during the first three months. Second trimester abortions usually involve an injection of medication to help trigger the abortion. As far as how you will handle an abortion emotionally, some women feel relief, sadness, anger, upset, guilt, nothing at all, or all of the above. You may or may not experience unexpected emotions afterwards. If you choose to have an abortion, let a close friend or two, besides your boyfriend, know about it. Having people around who care and who can support you in your decision will help. Ultimately, the decision is yours to make. You've got several choices to consider: you can terminate the pregnancy either surgically or medically (whichever is recommended as appropriate for you)- or, you can carry the pregnancy to full-term, either keeping the baby or perhaps arranging for the baby to be adopted. Carefully think about which option will be best for you and your boyfriend. It may be a complicated decision to make, as family, religious, cultural, and future life concerns are so often influential. Speak with a health care provider or ask your student health service if you need more help making your decision. Another resource that can help you make a decision is Planned Parenthood because they offer a wide-range of women's health care and information: Planned Parenthood 1.800.230.PLAN (-7526) You can also read RU-486 (Mifepristone) in Alice's Sexual Health archive for more information about this medical form of abortion. Alice believes that whatever you decide, know and remember that you will be making the best choice for yourself at this point in your life. http://www.goaskalice.columbia.edu/1405....

Please don't wait if you are going to do it. That is a life inside of you! 6 months is far too late! By that time thae baby can suck it's thumb, kick and move, and has finger prints! 4 months is also ridiculous. If you are going to do it, get it done at just a couple weeks along. Also, consider adoption.

As soon as possible, Some clinics will go up 16 weeks while others on some states will go up to 24 weeks. Go to http://www.abortionclinic.org/ to find out where the nearest clinic is in your state and it will give you all that information.
