Can I travel outside of North Dakota for an abortion?

First off, it’s important to know that traveling outside of your state for abortion care is a completely legal option. Just like when you go to Las Vegas to gamble legally in Nevada, you are free to travel and obtain abortion care in states with less restrictions.

If you live in North Dakota and are considering traveling to Minnesota or another nearby state for abortion care, carafem is here to welcome you with compassionate, convenient, and non-judgemental care on the other side of the border.

Abortion Laws in North Dakota

Abortion is completely banned in North Dakota with very limited exceptions. Beyond that, there is also a state-mandated counseling session and a 24-hour waiting period for the few people who qualify for abortion care.

If you live in North Dakota and need an abortion, it’s likely that your only remaining option is to travel to Minnesota or Montana where it’s easier to access abortion care. Before you make plans to travel remember to check abortion laws and requirements in your destination state. You can also watch for any updates or changes to these laws using Abortion Finder’s guide to abortion laws in North Dakota.

Traveling to Minnesota for Abortion Care

In Minnesota, abortion is not restricted based on how many weeks you are into your pregnancy. If it’s close enough for you to make the trip, Minnesota is a safe legal option for North Dakota residents who need abortion care.

In Minnesota, carafem offers Immediate Evaluation care with 24/7 medical support from our virtual abortion care assistant. There is no appointment required, but you will need to be present in the state to complete our online evaluation, mail your medication, and to take your abortion medication.
