1. Abortion access is now up to individual states, first you need to know what services are available in your state or states you can travel to. State laws will be shifting in response to Roe vs Wade being overturned with some total bans being enacted immediately. Some of these maps or sources won't be updated yet as things are moving very quickly; I recommend googling your state specifically and will be working to update this document when possible:

3. As clinics are closing due to unobtainable regulations, having funding pulled and being outright banned, there are still options for women seeking abortion care; there is a safe, effective pill that can be taken in the privacy of and shipped to your own home. You can get the pill up to 9 weeks into your pregnancy and after that a surgical abortion must be sought.

The “pill” is actually 2 different medicines. The first is Mifepristone, this stops the pregnancy from growing, then you take Misoprostol - this will cause cramping and bleeding and your uterus will empty. They’re usually sold together in something called a “combipack”
