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.

Abortion pill-by-mail

Planned Parenthood of Illinois is proud to now offer the abortion pill-by-mail, which means you can now access the care you need, when and where you need it.
