Access to compassionate, nonjudgmental, and safe abortion care for medically complex women is an important component of obstetric care for high-risk women. The care of women with neurologic disease who seek pregnancy termination or management of pregnancy failure includes consideration of their particular medical, anesthesia, and surgical needs. Counseling regarding pregnancy options is an important first step in helping women achieve their family planning goals. Understanding the safety of abortion, as well as options for medical, surgical, or labor induction termination can help providers discuss pregnancy options with women. Resources are available to help non-obstetric providers ensure their patients have access to medically sound, evidence-based information about pregnancy termination.
