Where can I get an abortion, and how much do they cost?

To find an abortion provider in your area call 1-800-772-9100or check this directory. You can also look in the yellow pages under “abortion” or search online, but be careful. Some organizations actively try to convince you not to get an abortion. You can learn more about them here. Another way to find an honest, trustworthy clinic is to call your local Planned Parenthood at 1-800-230-PLAN (7526) or family planning clinic for a referral.

The cost of an abortion depends mostly on how soon after you get pregnant you go for an abortion. Abortions performed earlier in a pregnancy—during the first three months—have fewer risks and cost less. Typically, a surgical abortion costs between $350 and $700 and a medical abortion cost between $350 and $650. Costs may be more or less depending on where you live. Some clinics offer sliding-fee scales, which means that you pay only what you can. Be sure to ask.

If your family receives Medicaid—health insurance for lower-income people—it may pay for abortion services. It depends on the state you live in and the circumstances surrounding your pregnancy. Find out how your state works. Also, there are organizations such as the National Network for Abortion Funds that can help a girl or woman pay for an abortion if she can’t afford it.
