How will state-specific laws affect my pregnancy options?

Depending on how far along your pregnancy is, you may have different abortion options available to you -- some of this depends on the laws in your state. It may be harder to find a healthcare provider to do an abortion after 11 or 12 weeks of pregnancy in some states, so it’s important to try to have the abortion as soon as possible, if that’s what you choose.

To find out more about what is legal in your state and where to go if you are at a later stage in your pregnancy and want an abortion, visit Ineedana.com or the National Abortion Federation hotline. The Guttmacher Institute also provides a state-by-state breakdown of current Abortion Laws - see An Overview of Abortion Laws. All links can be found on our Resources page, too.
