How late can you get an abortion?

I read from Guttmacher that late term abortions are mostly elective and you don't need a medical or health reason. That you can just get one whenever in some states. Is this true?

I haven't really looked to see which states allow late term abortions.

Your best bet is to start with deep blue states like California, Washington and New York. I suspect at the very least there are pockets of those states that have more or less declared war on the unborn, in spite of pro-lifers.

This what I read about New Mexico.

Abortion After 27 Weeks New Mexico

Facts About Induction Procedure (25 Weeks And Up):
This is normally a 3 day procedure depending on your medical history. First, an ultrasound will be done. This is done by passing a microphone-like instrument over your abdomen (belly) which measures the size of your pregnancy. The final decision as to whether the induction can be done will depend on your medical history, physical exam, lab tests, and the doctor’s evaluation. On the first day the cervix is slowly opened with plastic or metal rods, each one slightly bigger than the last. When the cervix is as open as possible, small sponges (laminaria) that take up water from your body will be placed; they swell and continue to open the cervix overnight. The next morning the laminaria are removed and new laminaria are placed. This is repeated as needed until the cervix is adequately open. The induction abortion ends with the start of labor and delivery of a stillborn.

Birth control: You can become pregnant again right after your pregnancy ends. To avoid any unwanted or unplanned pregnancy start using birth control immediately.
*We strongly suggest planning an extra day with your visit with us. Sometimes an extra day for dilation is needed for later abortions in New Mexico.
