If you are seeking a late-term abortion in Illinois, Capital Women's Services is here to help you. The reality is that late term abortion care may not be available in Illinois because of laws which limit the availability of late term abortions.
In Illinois the gestational limit at which abortion care can be provided is 24 weeks as defined by Roe v. Wade. And any minor in Illinois who is not legally emancipated must notify at least one parent/guardian that they live with at least 48 hours before having an abortion. Otherwise a minor must submit to the judicial bypass process. But Capital Women's Services is a provider that is ready to help women from Illinois 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 that Illinois has. This means that Capital Women's Services is able to be a late term practice without legal restrictions. This means we may be able to help you in getting late term abortion care.
