The following organizations are dedicated to helping people get the abortion care they need, no matter what.

Abortion Pills/At Home Abortion

Mifepristone and misoprostol (aka abortion pills) are a relatively inexpensive, private, safe way to have an abortion early in pregnancy. You can get these pills by visiting an abortion clinic, by prescription via telemedicine, or, you can buy them online without a prescription. Abortion pills have very low rates of complication and are safe to use on your own. This method is also called Self-Managed Abortion.

The regulations on abortion pills are constantly changing, and these laws are selectively enforced in a way that targets marginalized people. But regardless of what happens in the courts, you don’t need anyone’s permission to end your pregnancy with abortion pills. The following resources will help you navigate that process and assess any potential legal risk in your state.

Sharing info about abortion pills is the best way that we currently have to expand abortion access. The fact that we can end our own pregnancies safely with pills must become common knowledge. Help us spread the word by sharing the URL that redirects to this page: ShareSafeAbortion.Info.
