Confidential, quality care at home with telemedicine.  

If you are pregnant and want an abortion, we offer telemedicine medical abortion, where you can receive the medications mailed to your home.   If you live in Oregon or Washington, please call 888-576-7526 for more information.  This is a research study.  Our study coordinator can give you more details and help you determine if you are eligible to participate.

TelAbortion Study

Planned Parenthood Columbia Willamette (PPCW) is proud to announce that we are participating in a new research study: the TelAbortion Study. The purpose of the study is to evaluate a service through which a patient can obtain medical abortion pills by mail without coming in person to the clinic.

Each study participant will be evaluated by videoconference, then obtain an ultrasound and other tests at facilities near home before and after the procedure. The study will use the same medicines that are used for all medical abortions at PPCW.

The Purpose of the Study

The purpose of the study is to improve access to abortion for people who may find it challenging to come to clinics due to distance, the costs of travel, the need for childcare, lost wages, or for other reasons.

The study has been approved by an ethics board. It is being coordinated by a nonprofit research organization.  Participation in the study is confidential. Participant names will not be included in study data or be shared with anyone besides PPCW providers.
