1. Determine how far along in your pregnancy you are. Count the number of weeks from the first day of your last normal menstrual period. This will give you an estimate of how far along you are. If you can’t remember, or if your last period was unusually light, you may need to get a sonogram to determine your gestation.
2. Call the local clinic of your choice to find out the cost of an abortion and set up an appointment. You may want to call several clinics to find the best price. Some clinics may not be able to help you if you are farther along in your pregnancy. Map of Texas abortion clinics.
3. Determine how much money you have right now and all the possible ways you can acquire the amount needed. Who can you borrow money from and how much? When will you receive your next paycheck or other income and how much money can you take out of it? What other ways can you raise money? Consider these: hold a yard sale, pawn something, get a temporary job, do odd jobs, baby-sit, clean houses, use a credit card, or use a trusted friend or family member’s credit card. Add up the figures to determine the amount of money you can raise for your abortion. Please keep in mind that abortion assistance funds have small budgets and must help many, many women. You will be responsible for most of the cost of your abortion.
