No matter their age, every person in Alaska has the legal right to get an abortion. The abortion clinics in Alaska are able to perform abortions up to 14 weeks, and can provide information on abortion services if you are more than 14 weeks pregnant.
In Alaska, every person who wants or needs to have an abortion must get counseling with the clinic before the procedure. All abortion providers give some counseling to make sure you understand the medical process. But in Alaska, the law makes abortion providers offer you certain written materials about abortion that may be misleading or completely wrong. You don’t have to take these materials or read them if you don’t want to, but if you do read them and have questions, you can connect with other young people who have had an abortion to hear about their experiences here. You can also learn more about abortion procedures, how people may feel afterward, and learn about free, confidential, phone-based counseling services here. You can also talk to the clinic staff about any questions you may have.
No. In Alaska, there are no extra restrictions for people under 18. You do not need to tell or involve an adult in your decision to have an abortion if you do not want to.
You might be able to get help paying for your abortion. Ask your clinic if they can help you cover the cost of your abortion through an abortion fund.
