We've created the Real Talk Hotline to address the needs of thousands of Texans who struggle to gain access to a safe abortion. Needing an abortion can mean having to navigate multiple barriers, including but not limited to: the high cost of abortion, child care, travel and transportation costs, lodging, forgoing work, and being away from family and loved ones longer than necessary. These barriers can be emotionally trying and very expensive, which is why we want to make the experience of accessing an abortion as seamless as possible.

"Mom, Dad, I'm Pregnant..."

It can be difficult sharing a pregnancy with those around you, especially if they are your parent(s) or guardian(s). The Abortion Care Network has a helpful info sheet that can help you through this conversation.

Laws - Texas

If you are under the age of 18, Texas requires 'Parental Consent' in order for you to have an abortion. This means that either one of your parents, a legal guardian, or a judge, gives permission for you to obtain an abortion. There are a few different ways you can meet this requirement:

  • Bring a parent or legal guardian to your appointment, make sure that everyone has a form of ID with a photo, name, and date of birth. You will also need to bring in a birth certificate and possibly any other documents that prove the relationship (for example name-change papers if the names on the ID/birth certificate do not match, or termination of parental rights if you are being cared for by a legal guardian).
  • Before your appointment, complete Parental Consent paperwork online (some clinics have them on their website while others may be able to fax or email them to you) with your parent or legal guardian and have them sign and date it in the presence of a notary
  • If you are unable to have a parent or legal guardian provide the consent, there is an option to obtain a judicial bypass which would allow a judge to give consent for the abortion. If you think this may be your only option, Jane's Due Process (see above) is a wonderful organization that can guide you through this process. 

Laws - New Mexico

At this time there are no parental requirements for women under the age of 18 who are seeking abortion services in New Mexico.
