Abortion is a safe and legal way to end pregnancy. It’s also very common. 3 in 10 women in the U.S. will have an abortion by the time they’re 45 years old. There are two kinds of abortion in the U.S. — in-clinic abortion and the abortion pill.
The decision to have an abortion is very personal, and only you can decide what’s best for you. But we’re here to answer whatever questions you may have, and help you get the care you need — no matter what you decide to do about your pregnancy.
If you are trying to decide if abortion is the right choice for you, a staff member at your local Planned Parenthood health center can talk with you about all of your pregnancy options.
Some Planned Parenthood health centers provide abortion, but not all of them do. If your local Planned Parenthood doesn’t have the abortion service you need, we can refer you to other health care providers in your area that can help.
