If you are seeking a late-term abortion in Kansas, Capital Women's Services is here to help you. The reality is that late term abortion care may not be available in Kansas because of laws which limit the availability of late term abortions.
In Kansas the gestational limit at which an elective abortion can be performed is 20 weeks. On top of this limit abortion providers must supply the patient with state regulated documents and conduct state regulated counseling. After a patient has in-person counseling with their abortion provider, there is a 24-hour waiting period before the abortion can be performed. Also, any minor who is not legally emancipated must notify a parent before having an abortion. If a minor can not do so, they are forced to go through a judicial bypass process.
Capital Women's Services does not have these same restrictions and we are ready to help women from Kansas who need a later abortion - whether a late second trimester abortion or even a third trimester abortion.
This means that Capital Women's Services is able to be a late term practice without legal restrictions put onto the patient. 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 Kansas 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.
