Abortion Care

Medical vs. Procedural Abortion:

  • A medical abortion can be received up until 9 weeks after a missed period and it consists of 2 Mifeprex pills, one of which is taken in the health center and the second is taken at home. The abortion will happen at home and the individual should return to the health center within a week for a follow-up appointment.
  • A procedural abortion can be performed within 21 weeks and 6 days after a missed period. The procedure takes about 20 minutes. A physician, medical assistant, and an advocate are available to the patient upon request. 

Missouri-specific abortion regulations:

  • If an individual is under 18, they must receive signed consent from a guardian.
  • Individuals must call in and make an appointment beforehand. After the intake appointment, an individual must wait 72 hours before returning to the health care center for the abortion care procedure.
