In brief: Depends on method
Usually first trimester abortions can be safely done up to 14 weeks gestation.
Abortions at 16 to 18 weeks are far more complicated. Many states consider a 20+ week pregnancy a"birth event" and abortions are generally not done at that time unless to save a mother in exceptional circumstances.
