  • Louisiana requires an in-person counseling visit, then waiting 72 hours before having an abortion.
  • Louisiana requires your abortion provider to perform an ultrasound.
  • If you are under age 18 in Louisiana, a parent or guardian must give permission for your abortion. If this is not an option for you, contact the JB Hotline.
  • Abortion in Louisiana is legal to just under 22 weeks.
