I need to know where and how to get an abortion without parents finding out and I was also wondering if it could be a quick thing to do?

Planned Parenthood: Planned Parenthood is probably your best and safest bet, they have a longstanding good reputation.Also,since you are 18 and technically an adult, there's no reason your parents would have to find out unless you choose to tell them yourself.If you use the abortion pill option, it's about a 2 day process, with two different pills.There's also two in-office abortion procedure options-1 day procedure. ...Read more

Can I get an abortion without my parents finding out? Even if I'm under their insurence? Or if I don't use insurence can I get one cheap? Don't judge.

Can I get an abortion without my parents finding out? Even if I'm under their insurence? Or if I don't use insurence can I get one cheap? Don't judge.

Not judging...: You won't be able to get one under their insurance without them finding out. However, at the age of 18, you can get an abortion on your own. But let's find out if you're pregnant first, OK? I suggest going to a planned parenthood office. They can test you there and then you can discuss options. If you aren't pregnant, they can help you get reliable birth control. ...Read more

Is there any type of abortion pill I can take?? And where cab I get it?? Planned parent hood?? V

Abortion provider: Abortion pills are available only from abortion providers who are generally OBGYNs. You can find providers on the internet and should call them to find out if they give pills or only do surgical abortions. This is a serious matter and hope you find the right provider to help you. Additionally after this pregnancy call your OBGYN to get reliable birth control and avoid further unwanted pregnancy ...Read more

If i were to be pregnant can I get an abortion without my parents knowing!?

If i were to be pregnant can I get an abortion without my parents knowing!?

Varies by state: In all states you are an adult at age 18 and certainly can make your own health decisions. If you are under 18, pregnancy can "emancipate" you to make those decisions in some states, and the age that you can do that at varies state to state. Best you go on planned parenthood website and click to the state you live in for info. I encourage you to enlist a trusted adult in your decision, though. ...Read more

Please help me I'm 17 and 5 months pregnant and I don't want the baby I can't afford to get an abortion and I don't want my parents to find out?

Please help me I'm 17 and 5 months pregnant and I don't want the baby I can't afford to get an abortion and I don't want my parents to find out?

Difficult choices: At any age having an unwanted pregnancy causes distress to the woman and the people who love her. Your options may include a GYNecology clinic or Planned Parenthood to discuss options available to you in your community. I would recommend confiding in your parents after you identify your available choices. At five months your pregnancy may be not such a secret. Good luck. ...Read more

If a person is under the age of 18 and is pregnant and the parents want them to get an abortion but child doesnt want to , do they have to ? I live in Florida

If a person is under the age of 18 and is pregnant and the parents want them to get an abortion but child doesnt want to , do they have to ? I live in Florida

No: I looked at several legal websites and what I can tell, not being a lawyer is that when you become pregnant you become what is called an "emancipated minor" and this means that your body is yours to do what you wish with it and that you can make the medical decision on this issue Here is one link to a website that covers abortion rights in general for minors http://www.legalmatch.com/law-library/article/abortion-rights-of-minors.html ...Read more

I am a young teen i have been pregnant 2 times and i have had one abortion and a miscarige how could i get on birth control without my parents knowing?

I am a young teen i have been pregnant 2 times and i have had one abortion and a miscarige how could i get on birth control without my parents knowing?

Abstinence is ideal,: but if you continue to be sexually active, call Planned Parenthood of Kansas & mid-Missouri at 1-800-230-PLAN for an appointment. I'm surprised you were not offered testing for STD's & birth control options at the time of your medical termination. PPKM will encourage you to involve at least one parent, but they will follow KS law on your right to confidential medical care. Be safe & healthy. ...Read more

If I am on isotretinoin and i got pregnant will I have to have parents permission to have an abortion I am 17?

If I am on isotretinoin and i got pregnant will I have to have parents permission to have an abortion I am 17?

Doesn't sound good: Accutane (isotretinoin) is not for everyone. A girl or woman must never get pregnant on it, which is why she cannot use Accutane unless she is also (always) using two forms of contraception. A girl who may be pregnant while using Accutane can contact her doctors right away and stop the Accutane (it causes bad birth defects in babies, and parents are usually very sensible when it comes to that). ...Read more

I think im pregnant i haven taken a test but i really can't have a baby it will ruin my life, and i can't have an abortion because my parents will find ?

Take a Deep Breath: Panic seems to creeping into your space. First, take a pregnancy test. Then, be prepared to own up to your life. Whatever, fallout there may be to deal with now, will not come close to the burden of a secret. Counselors at places like planned parenthood (1-800-230-plan) or at a local teen/adolescent clinic will help you confidentially decide how to go forward. ...Read more

I'm 17 years old and not ready to have a child. How can I have an abortion without my parents knowing?  Please help. I'm less that 8 weeks pregnant.

Research your option: In the state of Ohio, if you are less than 18 yrs of age then the requirement is that at least one of your parents be notified and also give consent for termination of pregnancy. You can get a "judicial bypass" is some circumstances. Get in touch with your local Planned Parenthood. They will be able to help. http://www.plannedparenthood.org/health-info/abortion/parental-consent-notification-laws ...Read more
