Abortion is an incredibly common medical procedure. About 1 in 4 women will have at least one abortion in their lifetime. In Washington, you can have an abortion for any reason up until the pregnancy is determined to be viable (or around 23 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 all clinics are set up to perform abortions after a certain gestational age, you can check to see your options on sites like ineedana.com.

You may have noticed that television, movies, and anti-choice organizations sometimes imply that abortion clinics are dark, dirty, or scary places. The truth is, most clinics are clean, bright, and respectful of your wants and needs. Finding an abortion provider that you feel comfortable with is important, especially for those who feel vulnerabel or nervous about seeking an abortion.
Some clinics only offer abortion procedures up until a certain gestational age, so you’ll want to consider how far along you are before scheduling. If you feel comfortable sharing your desire to have an abortion with your close friends or family, they may offer some recommendation.
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.
