How to Use Abortion Pills

NOTE: The contents of this website are for informational purposes only and are not a substitute for advice from a medical provider.

In the US, abortion is legal in every state, and every state has at least one clinic that provides abortion care. However, in many states the law requires that abortion pills be given by licensed health care clinicians, and a person who uses abortion pills that were not obtained through a clinician may face criminalization.
