How Much Does An Abortion Cost?
The specific cost of an abortion depends on the type of procedure (medical or surgical) and the size of the baby, which are based on gestational age. The price rises as pregnancy progresses. Price also varies by provider and is dependent on health insurance; clinics and private practice abortionists typically offer lower costs than hospitals.
When can I get an abortion? Am I too far along to take the pill?
In Connecticut, an abortion may be performed at 20 or more weeks postfertilization (22 weeks after the last menstrual period) only in cases of life or severely compromised physical health.
If you don’t know how far along you are, Pathways Pregnancy offers a free referral for a limited ultrasound with proof of a positive pregnancy. Call to ask about getting an appointment scheduled or come in for your initial visit and free pregnancy test.
Why do I need a sonogram before an abortion?
Receiving a limited ultrasound before you get an abortion is an important medical step and one of the most accurate ways to get essential information about your pregnancy. A limited ultrasound referral from Pathways determines if there’s fetal cardiac activity (a heartbeat), how far along you are, and the location of your pregnancy.
What are Connecticut laws that might affect an abortion decision?
In the State of Connecticut, the following are state guidelines on abortion:
- You must receive counseling that includes information about your pregnancy options.
- An ultrasound is performed before obtaining an abortion; with the option to view the image.
- Once the counseling and ultrasound has taken place, there is a designed 24 hour wait period for the abortion procedure to be performed.
- Minors, under the age of 18, are required to have consent from both of parents before an abortion can be performed.
