Abortion is legal in Michigan

On June 24, 2022, the U.S. Supreme Court removed the constitutional right to abortion and opened the door for politicians and state governments to interfere in our most personal health care decisions. This can be scary and confusing, but Planned Parenthood is here to help you understand how these laws might affect your ability to get care.

Abortion is still legal in Michigan, and Planned Parenthood health centers are still open to provide a full range of sexual and reproductive health care services, including abortion. Our health centers — with supportive doctors, nurses, and expert staff — continue to provide the care and resources you've come to rely on.

What you need to know about abortion services in Michigan

Is abortion currently legal in Michigan?

Yes! Abortion is legal in Michigan until viability, which is generally considered to happen around 24 weeks. Planned Parenthood of Michigan provides abortion care to patients up to 20 weeks gestation.

How do I schedule an abortion appointment?

You can schedule your appointment online (see "book an appointment" below)  or call 800-230-7526.

What abortion services does PPMI offer?

We offer medication abortion at all Michigan health centers and via telehealth appointments. Medication abortion (also called the abortion pill) is a safe and effective way to end an early pregnancy. It involves taking two different medicines — mifepristone and misoprostol (both must be taken while you are in the state of Michigan) — and is available at PPMI up to 11 weeks gestation. The administration of these medications causes the abortion; no procedure is involved. 

We also offer in-clinic abortion procedures at the Kalamazoo, Flint, Irwin/Martin (Grand Rapids), and Power Family (Ann Arbor) health centers. Learn more information about the abortion services PPMI offers.

Does PPMI offer medication abortion (the abortion pill) through telehealth visits?

Yes! If clinically appropriate, patients within the state of Michigan can receive a medication abortion (the abortion pill) via a telehealth visit. If a telehealth appointment is not appropriate in your circumstances, you can still have a medication abortion by scheduling an in-person visit at any Planned Parenthood of Michigan health center. Call 800-230-7526 to find out which option is best for you.

Does Michigan have a mandatory waiting period for abortion appointments?

On June 25, 2024, the Michigan Court of Claims granted a preliminary injunction to temporarily lift Michigan’s 24-hour mandatory delay and other harmful restrictions for abortion.

What does this mean for patients seeking abortion care in Michigan? At this time, patients DO NOT need to

  • review the state-mandated informed consent information,
  • print the informed consent form, or
  • wait 24 hours before they can receive abortion care.

If you have questions about how this affects your appointment, please call 800-230-7526.

What forms of identification do you accept?

If you are 18 years or older, you will need a picture ID that clearly states your date of birth. If you are under the age of 18 with parental consent, you will need a copy of your birth certificate, your guardian’s picture ID, and your picture or school ID. If you are under the age of 18 with a judicial bypass, you will need all paperwork provided by the judge and a picture or school ID.

Can minors access abortion in Michigan?

Minors (under age 18) must provide written consent from at least one legal guardian to have an abortion. If a legal guardian is not available or refuses to give their consent, or if the minor does not want to seek the consent of a legal guardian, the minor may ask a court for a waiver of parental consent, also known as a judicial bypass.

You can access judicial bypass information here. Please call us for more information on how to obtain a judicial bypass in Michigan.

Will my insurance cover the cost of an abortion?

Possibly. We will review your insurance prior to your visit to determine coverage. You can also contact your insurance company directly using the number on the back of your insurance card.

A note about privacy: if you are not the primary cardholder of your policy, that individual may be able to access information about services paid for by the insurance.

Does PPMI offer financial assistance for abortion?

Yes! You can call 800-230-7526 to see if you qualify for financial assistance. You can contact a patient navigator by email at [email protected].

What methods of payment can be used to pay for an abortion?

Planned Parenthood of Michigan accepts cash, checks, Visa, Mastercard, and Discover cards, cashier’s checks, and money orders. We also accept Apple Pay and Google Pay. We are not able to accept starter checks or American Express. Payment is due for all services at the time of the visit.

What options are available for managing discomfort?

For those choosing medication abortion (the abortion pill), PPMI can prescribe over-the-counter non-narcotic pain medication. 

In-clinic abortion patients have several options for managing discomfort. These include pills or medications administered through an IV.

Accessing abortion care

Planned Parenthood of Michigan has a team of abortion navigators who can help you plan for your visit. They can help in accessing financial assistance and coordinate travel to obtain safe and legal abortion care. They can also provide guidance around Michigan’s 24-hour consent law, parental consent for minors, or judicial bypass.
