WE ARE OPEN. We are seeing patients and helping women get the care they need.
On June 29, the U.S. Supreme Court issued an emergency stay which will protect, for now, access to safe, legal abortion for women across Texas. The Court's order will keep medically unnecessary and severe state restrictions blocked.
Restricting or banning abortion blocks women from getting safe medical care. This dangerous law never should have passed in the first place.
Planned Parenthood Center for Choice has been providing care to women who have made the decision to end a pregnancy and we will continue to provide that care.
An in-clinic abortion is performed using gentle suction and medical instruments to remove the pregnancy from the uterus. In clinic abortions are performed up to 20 weeks post-fertilization at our Houston location. Please call us 713.535.2400 or 1.800.831.6538 so we can determine if we can provide you with an abortion.
*A Texas law requires women to have an ultrasound at least 24 hours before she has an abortion. The ultrasound has to be done by the same doctor that will perform the abortion. By law, we can't accept ultrasounds done by any other providers. We apologize for the inconvenience.
