How Much Does Abortion Cost in Minnesota?
The out-of-pocket cost of an abortion varies greatly from procedure to procedure. As you decide if abortion is right for you, it’s important that you understand whether or not you are eligible for certain forms of abortion.
For example, the abortion pill, also called a medical abortion, is only available to women in the first 10 weeks of pregnancy. The abortion pill costs around $500. Surgical abortions, however, can cost anywhere from $500 to $3,000 depending on your stage of pregnancy and the type of procedure you are eligible for.
