The recent overturning of Roe V. Wade has drastically changed the abortion landscape in our country. Now that the decision about abortion has returned to the individual states, you may be wondering about what is legal and even possible near you.
One option you may be considering is getting the abortion pill by mail.
Where is Medication Abortion Legal?
Medication abortion is only legal in a few states.
Currently, 32 states require you to see a doctor before you can have a pill sent to you in the mail. Sometimes you can schedule a telehealth visit, but most often you will need to go in person to be seen and have your pregnancy confirmed. In at least 19 states there are restrictions that ban doctors from prescribing the abortion pill via a telehealth visit.
A doctor in a state where the abortion pill is legal cannot prescribe and mail the abortion pill to someone in a different state without risking penalties and license suspension.
It is essential to have a medical evaluation concerning your pregnancy and how determine how far along you may be since the pill should only be taken within the first ten weeks.
How Much Does the Abortion Pill Cost?
According to the researchers at the University of San Francisco, a medication abortion usually costs around $550 when you include the physician visit.
