As of September 1, 2021, a new Texas abortion restriction law (SB 8) is in effect that limits our ability to provide abortions at our health centers. Visit ppgreatertx.org/SB8 for the latest updates on this law and the current impact to patient services.
Texas state law requires all women seeking an abortion to make at least two visits to the abortion facility.
Beginning October 1, 2011, Texas women have to make at least two trips to a health center for an abortion: the first for an ultrasound, and the second for the procedure. We understand that requiring multiple visits makes things more challenging for women during a stressful time, but it is now mandated by Texas state law.
