If you are seeking a late-term abortion in South Carolina, Capital Women's Group is here to help you. The reality is that late term abortion care may not be available in South Carolina because of laws which limit the availability of late term abortions. But we are ready to help women from South Carolina who need a later abortion - whether a late second trimester abortion or even a third trimester abortion.
In South Carolina, abortion procedures are limited after 20 weeks. There is also a mandatory 24-hour waiting period, forcing patients to wait after counseling to start a procedure. Waiting periods delay sometimes vital procedures for women, limiting their options even further.
Washington, DC does not have the same legal restrictions as South Carolina, so abortions are legal here up to any gestation - even up to 36 weeks. This means that Capital Women's Group may be able to help you in getting late term abortion care. There is no waiting period that will delay your procedure.
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 South Carolina 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.
If you are traveling to Capital Women's Group for a late term abortion, you may need to make travel arrangements. Capital Women's Group talented and caring patient advocacy team can help you with your travel arrangements.
