Austin Abortion Clinics – 2nd Trimester Abortion Services at Family Planning Associates Medical Group

Quality Compassionate Reproductive Health Care Personalized To Fit Your Needs

Austin, Texas – In-Office Abortion / Abortion Pill Clinic

Family Planning Associates Medical Group (FPA) Abortion Clinic for Austin, Texas residents is one of the largest independent abortion providers in the United States. FPA has been a nationally recognized provider of safe and compassionate abortion care for over thirty five years.

Many patients travel from Kentucky, Mississippi, Alabama, Texas, Louisiana, and Florida to obtain abortion care at FPA clinics. We have appointments available within 1-5 days most of the time and will work with you to accommodate your work schedule and/or travel plans.

FPA offers comprehensive women’s healthcare including birth control visits with or without an exam, first trimester surgical abortion, medication abortion up to 11.0 weeks, and second trimester abortion procedures up to 23.5 weeks.

As restrictive abortion laws have been passed in Texas and other states, FPA quickly evolved to offer help to patients travelling from Texas to access abortion care.

Texas has 7 million people of reproductive age, and Austin residents face some of the most restrictive abortion policies in the United States. Right now abortion is completely banned with very limited exceptions. There have always been laws in Texas that made it harder for patients to have an abortion in Austin, including parental consent and notification requirements, a 24 hour waiting period after an in-person counseling session which forces patients to make two trips to a clinic for care, and private health insurance coverage of abortion is banned except in very limited circumstances.

These restrictive laws stop patients from scheduling and having an abortion procedure in the first trimester, when it is safest. In Illinois there are no waiting periods or laws to delay your care—we can see you any day Monday through Saturday.

When you are pregnant you have three options:

  • Parenting
  • Abortion
  • Adoption

We can help if you are facing an unplanned or unwanted pregnancy. Nearly half of all pregnancies are not planned, and it can be a stressful experience to find out that you are pregnant when you didn’t plan it or don’t want to be.

Decisions about pregnancy are personal and only you know the right decision for yourself and your family. We trust you to make the decision that is right for you. If you are unsure of your decision and need unbiased advice and information, we recommend contacting All-Options. This talkline is staffed by volunteer peer-counselors. You can talk with someone about a past or present experience with abortion, adoption, parenting, infertility or pregnancy.

Safety is important to our patients and physicians. ACOG, The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, states on their website that abortion is a safe medical intervention, “Most abortions are safely performed in an outpatient nonhospital setting.” ACOG also states that only about 2% of patients who have an abortion experience a complication, and most of these complications are minor and easily treatable with follow-up procedures or antibiotics.

Your risk can depend on your personal medical history too. We will ask you to complete a full medical history and speak with one of our medical staff members before you travel to FPA from Austin for abortion care. Tell our staff if you have any current or past medical concerns so we can provide the best possible care for you.

FPA has offers a comfortable and private clinic setting for abortion care. We want you to feel comfortable obtaining services with us. Our compassionate and knowledgeable staff will review your pregnancy options, answer your questions, and talk with you about any concerns you might have.

All of our experienced physicians are board certified in obstetrics and gynecology and most are also on staff at a highly regarded local hospital. Our physicians, advanced care clinicians, administrative staff, nursing personnel, and entire support staff work together closely to offer safe, confidential and caring abortion services – this is one of our core values.
