Know Your Abortion Options

Medication Abortion

Medication abortion, or the abortion pill is a safe and effective way of ending an early pregnancy.  You can usually have your abortion in the privacy of your own home.

PPIL provides medication abortion (abortion pill) at all 17 of its health centers across the state up to 10 weeks and 6 days gestation.

Procedural Abortion

Procedural abortions are sometimes called surgical abortions, though they're generally an in-office procedure, not surgery. Procedural abortions are quick and extremely effective.

PPIL offers procedural abortions up to 21 weeks and 6 days gestation.

Confidentiality

Parental consent for abortion is not required in the state of Illinois. No one will be given information about your visit without your written permission or unless required to by law.
