In Georgia, abortion is legal but has restrictions.

If you are around 6 weeks pregnant or less, abortion is legal. The following restrictions exist:

  • Georgia requires a pregnant person to get counseling from their abortion provider, then wait 24 hours before the abortion procedure.
  • If you are under the age of 18, a parent or guardian must be notified beforehand of your decision to get an abortion.

If you are past around 6 week pregnant, abortion is not legal in Georgia, unless you qualify for an exemption. Exceptions included:

  • To save the pregnant person’s life
  • To preserve the pregnant person’s physical health
  • If the fetus is not expected to survive the pregnancy
  • If the pregnancy is a result of rape and/or incest

Abortion is legal in Florida up to 15 weeks, 6 days; however, many providers stop offering abortion earlier in pregnancy due to the increased risks that may occur with later terminations.
