If you are seeking a late-term abortion in Michigan, Capital Women's Services is here to help you. The reality is that late term abortion care may not be available in Michigan because of laws which limit the availability of late term abortions.
In Michigan the gestational limit at which abortion care can no longer be provided is 24 weeks. Even before any care can be provided, abortion providers are required to distribute abortion related documents that are complied by the state and conduct in-person counseling with their patients. Then the patient is subject to a 24-hour waiting period before their abortion care is done. Additionally any minors who are not legally emancipated must obtain consent from at least one parent prior to obtaining an abortion. Otherwise they must go through a judicial bypass process. Capital Women's Services is ready to help women Michigan who need a later abortion - whether a late second trimester abortion or even a third trimester abortion.
