Abortion is a safe and legal way to end a pregnancy. The decision to have an abortion is very personal, and only you can decide what’s best for you. But we’re here to help answer whatever questions you may have, and make sure you get the care you need.

Planned Parenthood Keystone offers in-clinic abortion and the abortion pill (medication abortion) by appointment at our Allentown, Harrisburg, Reading, Warminster, Wilkes-Barre, and York Health Centers.

Restrictions On Abortion In Pennsylvania

  • A person must receive state-mandated counseling that includes information designed to discourage her from having an abortion, and then wait 24 hours before the procedure is provided.
  • Health plans offered in the state’s health exchange under the Affordable Care Act can only cover abortion if the woman's life is endangered, or in cases of rape or incest, unless individuals purchase an optional rider at an additional cost.
  • Abortion is covered in insurance policies for public employees only in cases of life endangerment, rape or incest.
  • The parent of a minor must consent before an abortion is provided. See judicial bypass below for further information.
  • Government funding is available for abortion only in cases of life endangerment, rape or incest.
