Q&A: Late Pregnancy Termination?

If a baby is found to be positive for down syndrome, is termination possible at 19 - 20 wks?

Termination is generally possible at 19-20 weeks, but the later in pregnancy you have the termination, the greater the risks are to you of having a complication from the procedure such as significant bleeding or injury to your intestines or bladder. The gestational age restrictions for termination of pregnancy are legal restrictions and vary state by state.
