AbortOffshore is a floating clinic that performs legal abortions up to 20 weeks of pregnancy in federal waters on the eastern Gulf Coast. We have numerous points throughout Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. Our comfortable shore-to-shore voyage takes about 5 hours, with the procedure itself only lasting about ten minutes. Our surgical abortions are 99.8% effective and result in minimal aftercare or bleeding, allowing for a return to normal activities within 24 hours.
For women in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama, traveling to the coast and boarding our boat is likely closer, more affordable, and less time-consuming than traveling to a state where abortion remains legal. In addition, our surgical abortions, which allow for a quick return to normal activities, are a smart alternative to medical abortions, also known as the abortion pill, which induces a miscarriage at home with heavy bleeding, and intense uterine contractions, sometimes lasting two weeks.
