Barriers to abortion care are rooted in systemic racism and reflect ongoing inequities in our health care system.  Expanding access to medication abortion care can help close this gap.

Medication abortion care is a safe and effective way to end a pregnancy up to 10 weeks. It can also be provided safely and effectively via phone or video visits. Telehealth increases options for those working to make ends meet, rural folks, and Black, Indigenous, and people of color who have less access to care.

Anti-abortion politicians in 19 states have banned the use of medication abortion care through telehealth. There is no medical reason for these bans.

Our laws on medication abortion are out of touch and push care out of reach. Our vision:

  • In real life, we will be able to decide not just whether we end a pregnancy, but how
  • In real life, our laws will follow science, not politics.
  • In real life, we will get our meds in the way that makes the most sense for us, whether that’s at a health center, our nearby pharmacy, or delivered to our home.

Join us. #MedAbortionIRL

Medication abortion care is used by about 4 in 10 patients who have abortions.

But restrictions make it increasingly hard to get.

  • Anti-abortion politicians in 19 states have banned the use of medication abortion care through telemedicine.
  • 32 states require medication abortion to be administered by a physician.
