Houston Abortion Clinic Information – Abortion Services at Family Planning Associates Medical Group

Quality Compassionate Reproductive Health Care Personalized To Fit Your Needs

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

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

Many patients travel from Indiana, Alabama, Texas, Louisiana, and Florida to obtain abortion care at FPA clinics, without a waiting period. We have appointments available within 1-5 days most of the time and will work with you to accommodate your travel plans.

FPA offers comprehensive women’s healthcare including STD testing, contraception 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 Houston 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 Houston, 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.

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

We understand that safety is important to our patients. 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. The risk of maternal death associated with childbirth is 14 times higher than the risk associated with abortion.” ACOG also notes 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. Please tell our staff if you have any current or past medical concerns so we can personalize your care for your safety.

We want you to feel comfortable obtaining services with FPA, in our private clinic setting. Our approachable and knowledgeable staff will answer your questions, help you review your pregnancy options, and talk about any concerns you 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.
