If you are seeking a late-term abortion in Louisiana, Capital Women's Services is here to help you. The reality is that late term abortion care may not be available in Louisiana because of laws which limit the availability of late term abortions.
Louisiana is limited to three clinics within the entire state that stop performing surgical abortions at 20 weeks. Before obtaining abortion care, Louisiana requires providers to distribute state compiled documents and conduct state regulated counseling. After this in-person counseling there is a mandatory 24-hour waiting period. Additionally for any minors not legally emancipated there is a requirement to obtain consent from at least one parent. If a minor can not get this consent they are subject to a judicial bypass process. But Capital Women's Services is not subject to the same legal restrictions and we are ready to help women from Louisiana who need a later abortion - whether a late second trimester abortion or even a third trimester abortion.
With Washington, DC not having the same legal restrictions in place as Louisiana, Capital Women’s Services is able to be a late term practice with no waiting periods and no gestational limit. 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 Louisiana 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.
