Abortion is still legal in Virginia right now. Planned Parenthood health centers, with supportive doctors, nurses, and expert staff, continue to provide a full range of sexual and reproductive health services, including abortion care. We believe you — and only you — should control your body, life, and future.
We can also provide information and offer financial resources, where available, to help you get the abortion care you need in another state. Planned Parenthood stands for care: Your health and well-being are our highest priority, no matter where you live.
