Where To Get An Abortion

While abortion is legal in Hawai‘i, it is not easily available to many women. There are parts of Hawai‘i that do not have an identifiable abortion provider. If you feel comfortable doing so, you should always check first with your doctor (Ob/Gyn are the types of doctors who are most likely to provide abortion services) to see if he or she offers abortion services to patients. Many do provide the service but do not publicize it. They may also refer you to a physician that does provide the service.

Planned Parenthood of Hawai‘i has a clinic in Honolulu, one in Kona, and one on Maui. Visit our Resource Directory for their contact information.
 

PROVIDER REFERRAL RESOURCES

Hawai‘i does not have a publicly disclosed late term abortion provider.  Call Planned Parenthood of Hawai‘i at (808) 589-1149 for referral. A new website, www.latetermabortion.org, provides a list of clinics in the U.S. that provide abortions after 24 weeks.

National Abortion Federation (NAF)  is a professional association of abortion providers in the United States and Canada that provides referrals and financial support to women who need help paying for their procedures. 
 

ABORTION FUNDING RESOURCES

Abortion Fund Information – Abortion funds provide financial assistance to women who need help paying for their abortion. In addition, several funds provide additional support services such as short term housing for women seeking abortion services. Check online at www.nnaf.org/help/html
 

Women’s Reproductive Rights Assistance Project (WRAPP)
This organization provides funding direct to clinics. Residents of any state demonstrating financial need and over 10 weeks pregnant are eligible. Please ask the clinic you visit to call WRRAP to request financial assistance. If the clinic is not familiar with the Fund, the clinic may call the National Network of Abortion Funds at (617) 524-6040 to obtain the number for you. If the clinic is unwilling to call the Fund, you may call the Fund; leave your name, clinic name and number and a clinic contact person that is aware of the situation.

If you cannot afford the procedure, the possibility of qualifying for Medicaid or a loan fund is discussed.
