Telehealth for the abortion pill

In Illinois, Planned Parenthood Great Rivers offers telehealth for the abortion pill up to 12 weeks of pregnancy. You will have a virtual visit with a provider and the pills are mailed to you or you pick them up at the Fairview Heights health center. To qualify, you must have an Illinois address and be in Illinois at the time of your telehealth appointment.

With a telemedicine abortion, you get the same high-quality, professional care and the same medication you would get in-person. This gives you the option of managing your abortion at home.
