If you are seeking a late-term abortion in Colorado, Capital Women's Services is here to help you. The reality is that late term abortion care may not be available in Colorado because of laws which limit the availability of late term abortions. But we are ready to help women from Colorado who need a later abortion - whether a late second trimester abortion or even a third trimester abortion.
Colorado is one of the few states that offers late term abortion care, however, understanding its laws surrounding abortion can be difficult. In Colorado, a woman can only obtain a late term abortion (beyond 26 weeks) if there is a fetal or maternal indication. While this is the most common reason for a third trimester abortion, it is not the only reason. Capital Women's Services provides late abortion care up to 36 weeks for women in most cases.
If you are in Colorado and seeking a later abortion, it must be performed in a surgical center which can be very costly. Capital Women's Services does not have to impose such a costly burden on its patients, because the laws in our area allow for these procedures to be performed in our own outpatient facility. In certain circumstances, we can offer these procedures in our facility, or at a hospital. Additionally, more than 85% of Colorado counties do not have an abortion provider, let alone a later term provider.
Minors in Colorado are required to notify at least one parent or guardian if they want an abortion. Washington, DC does not have the same legal restrictions as Colorado, so abortions here are legal and available to all women 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.
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. We can typically offer later term abortion care to Colorado 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.
