The earlier a woman decides to terminate a pregnancy, the cheaper it will be to do so. Unfortunately, there is no such thing as a safe, free abortion. The search for free abortion clinics can be a waste of time and while finances shouldn't interfere with a woman's decision to have an abortion, she should seek professional abortion services from a health care provider. This is especially true if she is more than nine weeks pregnant, because the abortion procedure will require surgery and if done improperly can damage the uterus.
Some health care insurance companies cover abortion procedures. If you're worried about abortion costs, then instead of looking for free abortion clinics, check your insurance coverage.
There are two kinds of abortion procedures and, according to PlannedParenthood.com, they are within the same price range. If a woman is about nine weeks, or about 63 days, into her pregnancy, she will probably be advised to take an abortion pill. This is different than the emergency contraceptive dubbed the "morning after pill." The two abortion pills are Mifepristone and Methotrexate. A medical abortion costs between $300 and $800.
Women who have been pregnant between nine and 23 weeks, she'll need a surgical abortion. These cost between $300 and $950.
Hospitals and abortions for pregnancies terminated later in the second trimester will be more expensive than an abortion handled by a Planned Parenthood clinic. Women who need help finding the right abortion clinic for their situation can reach out to the National Abortion Federation.
