Many women want to know whether they can obtain an abortion in Idaho, especially following the overturning of Roe v. Wade.
In Idaho, abortion is banned, though there are exceptions for rape and incest. In January, the Idaho Supreme Court determined that there is no constitutional right to an abortion. Women seeking abortions are free to travel to other states for abortion procedures.
If Abortion is Banned, What Should I Do?
An unexpected pregnancy can be very frightening, especially if you are considering abortion and are unsure what other decision to make. First, you’ll want to ensure your health is in order and seek further information about your options.
After you’ve confirmed your pregnancy with medical-grade pregnancy testing, you should have a provider perform a limited obstetric ultrasound. Ultrasound reveals key information about your pregnancy, providing some details you’ll need to move forward.
An ultrasound tells you about the pregnancy’s viability, gestational age, and location (to confirm you don’t have an ectopic pregnancy). This information tells you whether you need further medical treatment and protects your health.
Sage Women’s Center offers no-charge obstetric ultrasounds for women who have had positive pregnancy test results at our center.
You’ll need to get options education to make an informed decision about your pregnancy. Though abortion isn’t legal in Idaho, other options, like making an adoption plan and parenting, are available. Sage Women’s Center offers you a safe place to review all of your options and make your own decision.
