Is it possible for me to have an abortion without my parents knowing?

If you’re under 18, your state may require one or both of your parents to give permission for you to have an abortion or be told of your decision to have an abortion before the procedure.Usually, judges in such states can decide if a girl can have an abortion without involving her parents. To find out more about the laws in your state, check out Parental Consent and Notification Laws, or contact your local Planned Parenthood health center.
