Minors (under age 18) must comply with Arkansas Act 270 of 1989, otherwise known as the parental consent law.
We encourage all young women who are faced with pregnancy to discuss their thoughts and feelings with their parents. However, we also understand there are valid reasons a young woman might not find this possible.
If you are unable to obtain parental consent, you are able to request a court order from your local courthouse. Minors seeking an abortion have the option to petition before a probate judge to be given permission ("Judicial Bypass") for an abortion without parental consent. This process is not complicated.
We often assist minors who choose this option, providing detailed information and instructions to make this process as easy as possible.

Please note there is also a 72 Hour Waiting Period that requires (2) visits to our center.
