There have been recent changes to Florida law that add obstacles to patients accessing care. These are not Planned Parenthood’s decisions, but changes in the law that Planned Parenthood is required to comply with. We will help you through the process to get your care.
15-Week Abortion Ban: Abortion care is still safe, legal, and accessible in Florida despite the recent Supreme Court ruling, but as of July 1, 2022 the Florida 15-week abortion ban is in effect, so your second appointment where you receive your medication or have your procedure must occur before the 15-week limit. Because of ongoing litigation, the status of the law may change quickly. Please be advised that Planned Parenthood will provide care pursuant to the law in effect on the day of your appointment.
24-Hour Mandatory Delay: A state law recently went into effect that requires a 24-hour mandatory waiting period for people seeking abortion care. That means abortion patients must appear in-person for two appointments at least 24 hours apart in order to comply with Florida law. There are limited exceptions, including exceptions for victims of rape, incest, domestic violence or human trafficking only if the patient provides documentation (police report, court order, or medical report). If a patient has had a miscarriage and there is no fetal heartbeat, that patient does not have to wait 24 hours or appear for two appointments.
Teens Seeking Abortion Care: Florida state law requires most young people under 18 to involve a parent or legal guardian in their decision. Visit https://www.plannedparenthood.org/planned-parenthood-southwest-central-florida/abortion/teens-seeking-abortion-services for more information about parental consent and how to get a judicial bypass if you cannot safely get permission from your parents to have an abortion.
If you are under the age of 18 and need help talking with your parents/caregivers or seeking judicial bypass we can help.
There may be additional charges for lab and blood work.
Payment is expected at time of service unless other arrangements have been made.
Abortion services may be covered by your insurance. If you want to use your insurance, please be sure to have your insurance information at the time of your visit.
