Abortion Resources


Abortion is legal in Hawaii with some restrictions. Right now, abortion is legal in Hawaii until "viability," the stage of pregnancy when a fetus has developed enough that it is able to survive outside the uterus with medical help. When it happens depends on how the fetus is developing and can be different for every pregnancy. This is typically interpreted as up to 17 weeks. A health care provider can determine whether a pregnancy has reached viability. Although Hawaii allows abortion until viability, some providers stop offering abortion earlier in pregnancy. There is no waiting period in Hawaii. If you are beyond 17 weeks, you can still reach out to Planned Parenthood to discuss your options. 

Parental involvement is not required in Hawaii. If you're younger than 18, you can consent to an abortion and do not have to notify a parent to get an abortion in Hawaii.


There are two main methods of abortion: the abortion pill (also called medication abortion), offered through 13 weeks of pregnancy, and an abortion procedure (also called in-clinic abortion), offered throughout pregnancy. Whether you have a medication abortion or the abortion procedure will depend on how far along you are in pregnancy, what’s available at the health center where you choose to get an abortion, and also your own preference. 

Some people get abortion care via telehealth or by buying abortion pills directly online. Abortion procedures happen safely at hospitals, at doctors’ offices, and at health centers. Even though it’s sometimes called a “surgical abortion,” the abortion procedure doesn’t usually happen in an operating room.
