carafem Expands 24/7 Telehealth Abortion Care to New York

Hello New York ❤️

carafem is proud to announce the launch of telehealth abortion services in New York, providing clients with a compassionate and convenient option, available 24/7 on our website. Founded in 2013, carafem has provided high-quality, people-centered reproductive health care to over 100,000 clients, 99% of whom would recommend carafem to a friend.

“carafem is proud to provide confidential, affordable, and reliable abortion care with 24/7 access in the city that never sleeps. We are experts at providing this specialized form of health care that is responsive to the individual needs of the people we serve. With telehealth abortion care, we’re able to break down more barriers to access. From rural counties to one of the biggest cities in the world, people across New York can find easy-to-access, trustworthy medical care with carafem. We are proud to be able to offer this to the people of New York,” said Melissa Grant, chief operations officer and co-founder of carafem.

What better place than a 30-foot billboard in Times Square to announce the launch of carafem’s expansion to New York? carafem believes abortion should be advertised just like any other form of health care, without shame or judgment. Infused with quotes from real carafem clients, the creative highlights what we’ve heard from serving over 100,000 clients, 99% of which would recommend us to a friend. Clients love access to 24/7 care and they especially appreciate Cara, our virtual assistant who accompanies every carafem client during their abortion.

Here’s the ad:

“As we expand into New York state, we hope our message continues to resonate across our country. Abortion care is health care and is universally needed by people of all backgrounds and across all states. While carafem is pleased to be able to expand into supportive states like New York, we see those who are losing access to abortion care in their own communities. We will continue to spread the awareness that abortion using medications is safe, supportive, private, and affordable.” said Grant.

carafem also offers telehealth care via video visits for those who want to talk through questions with their provider. During a video visit, which lasts about 30 minutes, people can also see if they qualify for additional financial assistance.

carafem believes in a future where every single person can access great abortion care from every zip code in the US — no matter the color of their skin, language they speak, dis/ability, gender identity, sexual orientation, ethnicity, or income.
