Michigan law requires that certain information be made available to anyone seeking an abortion at least 24 hours prior to the abortion procedure. This state-mandated law says the patient has the option to review or not review these materials. However, the patient must sign the informed consent form at our health center before the abortion can be performed.

Obtaining Informed Consent Materials

At a Health Center

We recommend that you stop by a Planned Parenthood health center to pick up these materials in person to avoid some of the problems with accessing them online. Find your local health center.


Alternatively, you may access the materials on the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services website. You should be aware that these materials were created by the State of Michigan through legislation drafted by anti-choice groups — not by the medical professionals at Planned Parenthood. As the most trusted name in reproductive health care, we do not believe that all of the information on the forms is unbiased or medically accurate. If you have any questions about any of the information you view on that website, please call Planned Parenthood at 1-800-230-7526.

There are about 25 pages on the website. You are NOT required to view all of them. At a minimum, clicking on each section heading once and viewing the information related to your procedure, the length of your pregnancy, the prenatal pages, and parenting pages is required. At the bottom of the parenting page, click "continue." Then click on "Informed Consent Internet Confirmation Form." Print this at least 24 hours before your appointment and bring it with you. We cannot perform your abortion without this form.

This form is good for only 2 weeks. You will be provided more information at your consultation, and any questions you have will be addressed.
