If you are seeking a late-term abortion in New York, Capital Women's Services is here to help you. The reality is that late term abortion care may not be available in New York because of previous laws which limited the availability of late term abortions.
Although on January 22, 2019 the New York State government passed the Reproductive Health Act in order to "codify Roe v. Wade protections into state law and ensure access to safe, legal abortion in New York State," there are still very few providers in the US which are able to provide abortion care past 24 weeks. Capital Women's Services is one of them and we are ready to help women from New York 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 that were in place in New York prior to 2019. This means that Capital Women's Services was able to develop a late term practice without legal restrictions. 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 New York 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.
