What are my abortion options?

Procedural (in-clinic) abortion

Reproductive Health Services provides procedural, also known as "in-clinic," abortion in Illinois up to 26 weeks of pregnancy.

The abortion pill

A medication abortion with the abortion pill can be done up to 11 weeks of pregnancy. We offer medication abortion at our Fairview Heights, IL, location and through telemedicine and pill-by-mail for patients with an Illinois address.

Telehealth for the abortion pill

In Illinois, Reproductive Health Services offers telehealth for the abortion pill up to 11 weeks of pregnancy. You will have a virtual visit with a provider and the pills are mailed to you or you pick them up at the Fairview Heights health center. To qualify, you must have an Illinois address and be in Illinois at the time of your telehealth appointment.

With a telemedicine abortion, you get the same high-quality, professional care and the same medication you would get in-person. This gives you the option of managing your abortion at home.

What are all my pregnancy options?

When you become pregnant, you have several options: parenting, adoption, or abortion. Learn more about your three options here.

Counseling and education are available to you and your family before and after an abortion. Our staff will:

  • Help identify and explore all options available so that you can make the decision that is right for you.
  • Offer the opportunity to get additional counseling through referral to other agencies.
  • Provide medically accurate reproductive health care information including, but not limited to birth control methods and prenatal care.

Counseling and education are available by phone at 618-277-6668.
