Question by  Ovidiu (55)

Can I have an abortion when I'm 17?

I mean without telling my parents or getting their permission.


Answer by  Jenkins (149)

The answer to this will depend on the state you live in (assuming you live in the US). Some states will permit a minor to receive an abortion without requiring parental notification; others will require your parents be notified or otherwise consent. A resource like Planned Parenthood should be helpful in finding this out.

It depends on the state that you're in. Your best course of action would be to check with your local Planned Parenthood (or visit plannedparenthood. com), and they can further advise you of your rights.

The laws regarding abortions will vary from state to state. Contact the Planned Parenthood, or somewhere like that in your state to find out the laws.

You will not be able to get an abortion at that age without parental consent and signature. This is pretty much a nationwide rule; you can, also, with parent signature, get the morning after pill. You can also get birth control (some without parents) at this age, so be careful.
