If you are seeking a late-term abortion in Arkansas, Capital Women's Services is here to help you. The reality is that late term abortion care may not be available in Arkansas, because of laws which limit the availability of late term abortions.
Current laws in Arkansas prohibit abortion care past 20 weeks, and these restrictions may become even stricter if recent proposals to ban abortion at 18 weeks take effect. Arkansas already requires in-person counseling, followed by a mandatory 48 hour waiting period. And with only one verified clinic that can perform a surgical abortion in the entire state, it can be difficult to safely access abortion care. But Capital Women's Services is ready to help women from Arkansas 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 as Arkansas. This means that Capital Women's Services is able to be a late term practice without legal restriction which can interfere with patient care. This means we may be able to help you in getting late term 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 Arkansas women, and we can offer said late 2nd trimester abortion care and 3rd trimester abortion care in either in a university hospital or in our outpatient facility.
