Special Note on Early Abortion, Late Abortion, Later Abortion, or Late-Term Abortion:
You may have seen abortion terms used like “early abortion,” “late abortion,” “later abortion,” or “late-term abortion” in the news. Unfortunately, these terms were thought up by anti-abortion extremists and have been picked up by the media. Cedar River Clinics intentionally avoids “early abortion,” “late abortion,” “later abortion,” or “late term abortion” because we feel the terms are judgmental. We proudly offer abortion care services during the first and second trimesters. You should be able to make health decisions that are best for you, your health, your family, and your life circumstances.

It is performed, in-clinic, by an expert health care provider who specializes in abortion care and may require appointments on 1 to 3 consecutive days depending on gestation and the provider’s discretion.
The first appointment day may last anywhere from 3 to 5 hours and includes:
