RI St. 23-4.7-6



An abortion shall not be performed upon an unmarried or unemancipated minor unless the consent of both the pregnant woman and at least one of her parents is obtained.



The pregnant minor's parents shall consider only their child's best interests.



If both parents are unavailable to the physician within a reasonable time and in a reasonable manner, consent of the guardian is sufficient.



If neither of her parents nor her guardian agree to consent to the performance of an abortion, or if she elects not to seek the consent of either of her parents/guardian, a judge of the family court shall authorize a physician to perform the abortion if the judge determines that the pregnant minor is mature and capable of giving informed consent to the proposed abortion.



If the judge determines that the pregnant woman is not mature, but that the performance of an abortion would be in her best interests, the judge shall authorize the abortion.



Proceedings in the family court must be confidential. The minor will meet with a counselor to complete paperwork and discuss what will happen in court.



When the paperwork is submitted to the court, a court date will be set.



The counselor will go to court with the minor and meet with the guardian appointed by the court.



The guardian will go over questions the judge will want answered.



After court, the minor will meet with the counselor to make an appointment and go over what happens during the procedure.

If you are under the age of 18 and need help talking with your parents/caregivers or seeking judicial bypass we can help.
