Ask the Experts:
How far along in your pregnancy can you get an abortion?

The Supreme Court decision to end our federal abortion rights has led to chaos and confusion around the country. Abortion access and policies seem to be changing day in and day out. If you or someone you know is considering an abortion, here's what you should know:
  • Remember: Although the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in 2022 (which means some states have banned abortion), abortion is NOT banned nationwide. Abortion is still legal in many states. It's also legal to go out-of-state for an abortion if care is banned where you live
  • You can safely and effectively end an early pregnancy using abortion pills (also called medication abortion) up to 77 days (11 weeks) after the first day of your last period.
  • You can get an on-site, procedural abortion up until 24 weeks (or later in some cases, for medical reasons). But most abortions happen early in pregnancy, and it can be hard in some places to find an abortion provider who can do an in-clinic abortion around or after 12 weeks of pregnancy.
  • If you're under 18 and live in a state with parental notification laws, you may need a judicial bypass. Judicial bypass can take on average 2 weeks, but can take even longer.
  • When you're looking for a place to get an abortion, beware of "crisis pregnancy centers" (CPCs). These are places that say they offer abortion or other pregnancy services, but they're actually run by people who want to scare or pressure people out of getting an abortion.
Laws about abortion continue to change. You can find more information about laws in your state and where to get an abortion from your nearest Planned Parenthood health center or AbortionFinder.org.
