Abortion is a safe way to end pregnancy. There are two kinds of abortion in the U.S. — in-clinic abortion and the abortion pill. Some Planned Parenthood health centers provide one or both kinds of abortion.
Abortion is very common. About 1 in 4 women in the U.S. will have an abortion by the time they’re 45 years old.

The Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, which means that states can now ban abortion. Some states have banned abortion or created lots of restrictions. But abortion is still legal in many states, and it's legal to go to a different state to get an abortion. Abortion is NOT banned nationwide.
Laws about abortion are changing very quickly. You can find more information about laws in your state and how to get an abortion from your local Planned Parenthood health center or abortionfinder.org.
If you’re under 18, some states require you to tell your parent or guardian that you’re getting an abortion, or get their permission to have an abortion. However, you may be able to ask a judge to excuse you from these requirements. Learn more about parental consent for abortion.
