Many teens want to consult their parents before an abortion, and most teens involve a parent in their decision to have an abortion. But telling your parents isn’t required in all states. Find out what the laws are in your state, and visit our webpage on thinking about abortion.
Abortion is safe, and serious complications are rare — but the risk to your health increases the longer a pregnancy continues. Nationwide, the cost for a first trimester abortion at health centers ranges from about $350 to $950. Some health insurance covers abortion, which can drastically reduce its cost. Abortion after the first trimester is possible, but it will generally be more expensive. Contact your local Planned Parenthood health center to find out whether they offer the abortion services you are considering, what kind of cost you can expect, and whether or not parental notification or consent laws apply.
If you are pregnant, or think you are pregnant, be sure to see a health care provider as soon as possible.
