No matter their age, every person in California has the legal right to get an abortion. But the state restricts abortions in some ways. In California, all abortions must be performed before 24 -28 weeks unless the pregnant person’s life or health is in danger. Check with your clinic to get more specific information about how many weeks pregnant you can be and still have an abortion.
No. In California, 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 may be able to get help paying for your abortion. Your clinic may be able to help you cover the cost of your abortion or you may be able to get help from an abortion fund:
