If you live in a state where you can’t get an abortion, Choices Women’s Medical Center, founded in 1971, can provide you with an immediate, safe, and confidential appointment for an abortion up to 24 weeks.
With the new changes to laws, it has become difficult, if not impossible to receive an abortion in many states. We will help you come to Choices to receive the highest quality abortion care. We can help you with travel details including airfare and housing, the costs of your trip, and the cost of your abortion.
Our Out-of-Town Program was created with your needs in mind. In most cases you can get an appointment within 1-3 days. New York State allows abortion up to 24 weeks with NO limitations. NO age restrictions. NO requirements that you notify parents or partners, NO waiting periods.
Transportation to and from NYC to our Leading Abortion Clinic including airfare. If you are worried about how to get to NYC from Texas, Florida, Oklahoma, Kentucky, Arizona, Idaho, Wyoming or other states and cities, we work closely with funding organizations who can help cover your travel costs. Choices is conveniently located in Queens, New York near JFK Airport and an easy commute via subway, train, bus or car from all New York City boroughs.
Overnight housing, if needed, with reduced hotel rates or a safe stay with a volunteer. We can also connect you with Haven Coalition, a volunteer network of caring people who will host your stay at one of their homes and, if needed, can arrange for someone to accompany you to your appointment at Choices.
