If I want an abortion, when should I have one?

The earlier the better when it comes to abortions.

It’s best to have the abortion as early in the pregnancy as possible. Almost all abortions are done in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. Early abortions are safer and cheaper, and it is easier to find a doctor or clinic to do it.


How do I get an abortion?

You can make an appointment at any clinic that offers abortion, including Planned Parenthood, Womens Health Specialists, FPA Women’s Health. Check here for a clinic finder.  (When looking for a place to get an abortion, watch out for “crisis pregnancy centers.”  These are fake clinics that may pretend to offer abortion but may use scare tactics and fake information to scare you out of getting an abortion.)

Your health care provider also may do abortions for patients or send you to another provider.
