Q: Where can a person find a clinic or get help paying for an abortion?
Abortion is legal in every US state. For someone who prefers not to self-manage their abortion, there is a clinic in every state that provides abortion pills. In some states, there are also telemedicine clinics that can mail pills.
AbortionFinder.org is the most comprehensive directory of trusted, verified abortion service providers in the US. Some of these clinics may be able to provide patients with small grants to help pay for care. They can also provide information about whether Medicaid can help cover the cost of abortion in their state.
The National Abortion Federation operates a toll-free referral and funding helpline at 800-772-9100. The hours are M-F 6PM-11PM ET, Sat. noon-9PM ET, and Sunday 9AM-9PM ET.
If a person lives in Washington D.C, Colorado, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, Montana, Oregon, New Mexico, New York, or Washington state, they may be able to receive abortion pills by mail through the TelAbortion Study. The Plan C abortion pill finder also lists other telemedicine programs where available, searchable by state.
Abortion funds provide loans, grants, and other practical support such as rides and lodging to people who need financial help to get an abortion. The National Network of Abortion Funds maintains an online directory of funds across the US and how to contact them, as well as advice on what to expect when calling them.
