Nashville Abortion Clinic Information – 2nd Trimester Abortion Services at Family Planning Associates Medical Group

Quality Compassionate Reproductive Health Care Personalized To Fit Your Needs

Nashville, Tennessee – In-Office Abortion / Abortion Pill Clinic

Family Planning Associates Medical Group (FPA) Abortion Clinic for Nashville, TN residents has been a leading provider of compassionate and quality abortion care for over thirty years.

Many patients travel from Indiana, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Missouri to access safe abortion care at FPA clinics, without any waiting period.

FPA offers comprehensive reproductive healthcare including STD testing, contraception visits with or without an exam, first trimester surgical and medication abortion up to 11.0 weeks, and second trimester abortion procedures up to 23.5 weeks.

As restrictive abortion laws have been passed by states throughout the United States in the last few years, FPA has evolved in order to offer help to patients travelling from out of state to access abortion care.

Tennessee has 1.6 million people of reproductive age, and Nashville residents face some of the most restrictive abortion policies in the United States. Right now abortion is completely banned with very limited exceptions. Previously there were additional laws that made it harder for patients to have an abortion in Tennessee, including parental consent requirements, a 48 hour waiting period, and patients are required to have an ultrasound even it if it is deemed medically unnecessary by a medical provider.

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