If you are seeking a late-term abortion in Iowa, Capital Women's Services is here to help you. The reality is that late term abortion care may not be available in Iowa because of laws which limit the availability of late term abortions.
In Iowa there is a gestational limit of 20 weeks at which abortion care can no longer be provided. Additonally, Iowa has strict laws which prohibit minors from seeking an abortion unless they are legally emancipated or have been married, forcing them to notify at least one parent 48 hours prior to having an abortion. Otherwise the patient must submit to a judicial bypass process. But Capital Women's Services is ready to help women from Iowa 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 Iowa. This means that Capital Women's Services can accommodate patients from Iowa without the same legal restrictions. This means we may be able to help you in getting late term abortion care.
