There are no legal restrictions on abortion services in the state of Colorado. The team at Mile High OB-GYN has been providing safe, affordable abortion services for decades. This includes patients who might need to travel from out of state, where these services are more restricted.
Mile High OB-GYN offers both medical and surgical abortions, depending on the length of gestation. Medical abortions (in the form of a pill) are available for up to 10-weeks gestation. After that, an in-office surgical abortion would need to be done. The name “surgical” can be misleading, as the procedure is minimally-invasive and takes only a few minutes. It’s a low-pain procedure and the patient will not be put under.
After 16-weeks, the procedure will need to be done in a hospital setting. It’s an equally routine procedure, and your OB-GYN from Mile High will still be the one providing your care. The new location is purely a precaution.
Common Question on Legal Restrictions
Are there any other legal issues I should be aware of?
Patients under 18 will need parental consent. However, if you have questions or need legal advice, Mile High will refer you to Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood has access to pro-bono attorneys who can help you with any legal questions you might have.
