Abortion prices in New Jersey and across the country increase in proportion to the gestational age of the pregnancy.
Medical professionals measure fetal age by calculating LMP – the number of weeks since the first day of your last menstrual period.
4 – 10 WEEKS LMP
- Indirect charges for the ultrasound and blood test may add to the total. Why spend money needlessly? Your early pregnancy may not be viable.
- The direct cost of a surgical procedure (vacuum or suction aspiration) during this period ranges from $350 at a clinic to $500 at a doctor’s office.
- The direct cost of the medical abortion (pill) ranges up to $800.5 The abortion pill is a prescription drug and can only be taken during the 4th week through the 10th week of your pregnancy. Once you have passed the tenth week, the pill is no longer an option.
11 - 24 WEEKS LMP
- 16 weeks LMP: $650 – $7006
- 20 + weeks LMP: $1,5007
After 14 Weeks LMP
After 14 weeks pregnant, New Jersey law dictates that 2nd-trimester abortions must be performed in a licensed hospital or done using a D&E surgical procedure.
Therefore, the charges for the hospitalization and medical procedures used will be higher when this requirement applies. Inpatient facilities such as hospitals have much higher charges than clinics or doctor’s offices.
