If you are seeking a late-term abortion in Alaska, Capital Women's Services is here to help you. Late term abortion care in Alaska is not available for women due to a lack of providers. There are only four reported abortion clinics in Alaska, and none of them perform abortions beyond the first trimester. This means any woman who is beyond 14 weeks in her pregnancy will likely not be able to obtain an abortion in Alaska. But we are ready to help women from Alaska who need a later abortion - whether a late second trimester abortion or even a third trimester abortion.
Washington, DC does not have the same legal restrictions regarding abortion that other states have, so abortions are legal here up to any gestation - even up to 36 weeks. This means that Capital Women's Services may be able to help you in getting late term abortion care.
Although there are several states that allow late term abortion, here are very few providers in the United States that actually provide this service. Alaska is one of these states. There is no law in Alaska that restricts abortion after a certain gestation, yet later abortion is still not available here because there are no providers that offer it. Capital Women's Services is here to help women from Alaska access 2nd an 3rd trimester abortion care.
Our doctors are all board-certified Ob/Gyns who are all experienced abortion providers and who have all held medical school faculty positions and full admitting privileges at university hospitals. Under certain circumstances, we can offer later term abortion care to Alaska women, and we can offer such late 2nd trimester abortion care and 3rd trimester abortion care in either in a university hospital or in our outpatient facility.
