A little over half of unplanned pregnancies end in abortion making it one of the most common medical procedures performed in America. In New York, you can have an abortion for any reason up until the pregnancy is determined to be viable, or around 23 to 24 weeks into the pregnancy. After that time, an abortion may be performed only if it’s medically necessary to save the pregnant person’s life. Not every clinic is set up to perform abortions after a certain gestational age, you can check to see your specific pregnancy options on sites like ineedana.com.

Most abortion clinics are clean, bright, and respectful of your wants and needs despite what you may have seen in movies or heard from anti-choice organizations.
To find the right clinic for you, consider how far along you are in your pregnancy. You can determine this by counting back from the first day of your last missed period. Some clinics only offer abortion procedures up until a certain gestational age, so you’ll want to call to confirm that you’re eligible before scheduling. You'll also need to consider how you will pay for the procedure and research the cost of abortion in New York.
When searching for clinics online, use caution. You’ll want to avoid scheduling with a fake clinic, sometimes called a “crisis pregnancy center,” a type of organization that often appears clinical online and in-person, but are generally not medical clinics and are funded by anti-choice organizations aimed at preventing pregnant people from accessing abortion care.
