Traveling to California for an abortion? Learn more about our services and how we may be able to support you

Frequently Asked Questions:

I don't live in California – can I still get an abortion at your health center? 

Yes!  If you can travel to California, we can provide you with care.  

I can’t afford to travel to California, is there any support you can provide? 

When making your appointment, be sure to let us know that you are traveling from out-of-state and need help with travel costs. We will connect you to our Patient Navigator who may be able to help you with expenses like travel, lodging, childcare, food, rideshare, and any other expenses.
