If you are seeking a late-term abortion in California, Capital Women's Services is here to help you. The reality is that late term abortion care may not be available in California because of laws which limit the availability of late term abortions.
In California the legal limit that you can have an abortion at is 24 weeks, or viability as defined by Roe v Wade unless the pregnancy is endagering the health or life of the pregnant person. California also has a law which requires minors to get parental consent; however at the time of writing it was permanently enjoined, meaning it will not go into effect. Past 24 weeks it may be difficult to find an affordable provider in California, willing to see you.
