A Women’s Pregnancy Center does not provide or refer for abortions; therefore, we do not publicize abortion pricing. However, abortion costs vary by the type of procedure, which are listed below
A medication abortion, usually called the abortion pill, is a series of drugs to terminate a viable pregnancy. The drugs cause the embryo to detach from the wall of the uterus and the uterus to contract to force the embryo and the pregnancy tissue out of the woman’s bod
The FDA approves medication abortion for pregnancies up to 10 weeks.
An abortion provider performing a surgical abortion uses rods inserted through a woman’s vagina to dilate a woman’s cervix and hold it open to access the uterus.
Typically used for pregnancies between 5-12 weeks, vacuum aspirations use a suction device to remove the embryo or fetus.
Women seeking an abortion further into their pregnancy will likely require a dilation and curettage (D&C) or a dilation and evacuation (D & E). A D&E uses more surgical tools and is a longer procedure than vacuum aspiration. Overall prices can vary depending on how far along the pregnancy is and the type of sedation used.
Current Abortion Law in Florida
There is a legal challenge to the state’s abortion laws. Currently, a woman can legally access abortion through 15 weeks and 6 days of pregnancy. If the new law goes into effect, the limit will be six weeks, at the time a healthcare provider can often detect cardiac activity.
If your pregnancy is farther along than the current 15-week limit, you need to add travel, food, and hotel expenses to the overall cost of the abortion.
Before receiving an abortion, confirm your pregnancy by ultrasound. According to Mayo Clinic, about 20% of pregnancies end in miscarriage. An ultrasound is important in confirming if fetal heartbeat is present. If you feel that you might be miscarrying, our Center is able to refer you to local providers who can further assess the health of your pregnancy.
An ultrasound will also locate your pregnancy to ensure it is in your uterus. Occasionally, embryos implant elsewhere in the body. The pregnancy is called an ectopic pregnancy. A healthcare professional must treat an ectopic pregnancy immediately for the woman’s safety. Neither medical or surgical abortions will treat an ectopic pregnancy.
