If you are seeking a late-term abortion in Missouri, Capital Women's Services is here to help you. The reality is that late term abortion care may not be available in Missouri because of laws which limit the availability of late term abortions.
With a gestational limit of 24 weeks and only three verified clinics to choose from in the entire state, late term abortion care can quickly become difficult to find. Missouri abortion providers must give their patients state-mandated documents and counseling. After this in-person counseling there is a mandatory 72-hour waiting period. Also, any minor not legally emancipated must obtain consent from at least one parent before having an abortion. Otherwise they are subject to go through a judicial bypass process.
Capital Women's Services is ready to help women from Missouri who need a later abortion - whether a late second trimester abortion or even a third trimester abortion.
