Abortion Care

Types of Abortion:

  • A medical abortion can be received up until 10 weeks after a missed period and it consists of 2 sets of pills, the first of which is taken in a health center and the second is taken 24 to 48 hours later in a location of the individual’s choosing. A follow-up appointment after one to two weeks is recommended in order to ensure the abortion was completed. 
  • A procedural abortion can be performed up until 16 weeks after a missed period. The procedure lasts between 5 to 15 minutes and is conducted by a physician. No follow-up appointment is required.
  • surgical abortion can be performed after 16 weeks and up to 24 week after a missed period. This procedure occurs over multiple days and is conducted by a physician. No follow-up appointment is required.

Missouri-specific abortion regulations:

  • Abortion is only available in the case of a medical emergency.
