If you go to a Planned Parenthood clinic that has a low-income program it can be as cheap as 115$. If you tells them you have no job, no money and no support they will likely have you pay the minimum for the procedure and get donations to cover the rest. 1-800-230-PLAN (1-800-230-7526) to find the Planned Parenthood clinic nearest you. You have the choice between the pill (which can be taken up to 11weeks, at home or at a friends house) or the vacuum method (in clinic procedure). Personally I used the pill method so I could be at home with my husband but some women want to have the surgical, so it's done and over with when they leave the clinic.
If you are underage you may want to check this site out to see about parental consent laws and whatnot. http://www.sexetc.org/state
Self-induced abortion, the best information is available in a book called Natural Liberty: Rediscovering Self-Induced Abortion Methods by Sage-femme Collective. ISBN 9780964592001 available at Amazon.com. This book details self-induced abortion methods, dosages and potential risks of medical abortion, menstrual extraction, herbal abortion, massage, etc. Free excerpts from the book are available at their website: http://www.sagefemmetoday.com
and they have some information in FAQs regarding cautions regarding online ordering of medical abortion pharmaceuticals.
Detailed how-to information on medical abortion - the safest and most effective method of self-induced abortion is available at www.womenonwaves.org However, Womenonwaves and Womenonweb's service is for areas where abortion is illegal.
There are several websites that offer the medical abortion pharmaceuticals online for sale, however many of them are suspect or proven to take your money, but not send the pills or send pills that do not contain the medical abortion medicines mifepristone and misoprostol.
There are non-judgemental resources for people who are looking to decide what decision is best for them (also called "options counseling" -- and it is not the same thing as pushing your agenda on someone). Backline http://www.yourbackline.org/
is a great organization which connects women with resources for which ever option they choose.
The National Abortion Federation http://www.prochoice.org/
also has options counseling, and they can refer to clinics that offer abortion as well as give factual information about abortion and (sometimes) offer financial assistance. There is funding available - either through donations to clinics or low (or no) interest loans for a clinical abortion. Going to a clinic is safer and more effective than attempting self-induced abortion. For funding information in the USA:
After abortion, there is a free *non-judgemental* counseling talkline called Exhale http://www.4exhale.org/
All of these lines respect the wide range of emotions women are feeling at this time *and* the diversity of their experiences.
If you are underage in the United States and are looking at self-induced abortion because of fear of parental notification – there are organizations set up to assist you. Contact your local National Organization of Women chapter http://
www.now.org or your local Unitarian Church minister http://
www.uua.org and ask about Operation Overground - a service to help transport and provide accomodation for women who must travel across states to obtain clinical abortion services.
