  • Well, if I am correct each state has different laws on how far along someone can be before they can't have an abortion. Some states will allow all the way up to full term. You need to call your local family planning office and ask what the laws are in your state and what facilities they have near you.


    **Just advice. I do not necessarily agree with full term abortions**

  • I think it's 24 weeks...right around the time that the baby would have a chance to survive outside the womb, or something. I forget, you probably can google it and find out.

  • abortion... its possible til week 12!!!!

    After week 12 you need to have a GOOD reason to have an abortion. Child is very sick (handicapped will be retarded ect.) or its too dangerous for the woman to carry a baby and didnt know about the pregnancy until then...

    other than that... only legal way to have an abortion is up to week 12...

    week 24 and 6 months and all this other stuff is not right!

  • My first thought was "After you get Pregnant" but... the LEGAL answer to your question is "It depends" Check laws in your state. Google "Abortion Laws + (state name)"

  • If you are too stupid to know that you can get preggers from having sex, you should just out yourself too.
