Live in a state where abortion is limited? We can help!
While abortion is legal in every state in the US, that doesn’t always mean that it is accessible. Many people live in states that have restrictive abortion laws or a low number of providers, which makes it harder and harder for people to access this basic form of medical care. 😓
But did you know that some people can travel to a neighboring state for a short video visit with carafem and then pick up abortion pills at a discreet location, all with 24/7 medical support at your fingertips? 😄
To help get the word out that it’s possible to receive high quality, medically supported abortion with pills in a nearby state, we reached out to social justice and mental health awareness artist and advocate Taylor Steinbeck (aka @shegotthepink on Instagram). We explained the situation and asked her to create some illustrations to paint the picture of what it looks like to legally access telehealth abortion care even if you live in a state where it is limited. We’re thrilled with how they turned out!
carafem can help you legally access telehealth abortion care even if you live in a state that limits it.
If there are restrictive abortion laws in your state or a low number of providers without availability that fits your schedule, you could head to a nearby state for more convenient care.
For people living in states with limited abortion providers, finding a timely appointment that’s convenient and discreet can be challenging. That’s where carafem comes in. Medically supported at home abortion care is currently provided by carafem in the District of Columbia, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Virginia, with more states coming soon (check this page for frequent updates). If you live outside of a state where we offer services, you may still be eligible for an Abortion Care Video Visit.
🗓️ Step 1 – Schedule online or give us a call to make your appointment at 1-855-SAY-CARA.
🛣️ Step 2 – Head to a convenient location where you have internet access in a neighboring state for a quick video visit with a trusted medical provider.
- To take advantage of our video visit appointments, you need to confirm you are physically located in one of the approved states for your video appointment. Payment will be collected at this time (costs range between $250-375, depending on the medication of choice and financial assistance needed).
📪 Step 3 – We’ll mail your medications to a convenient pickup location in the same state as the video visit within 2-3 days.
- carafem can mail your medications to an address in the state you select for your video visit — from a friend’s house to a delivery service pickup location. Rest assured, our package is very discreet — no one will know where your package is coming from or what it’s for.
🏠 Step 4 – Take the medications in the comfort and privacy of your own home.
- You’ll have 24/7 medical support throughout the whole process. Over the next several days and weeks, you will follow up with your provider and you have access to a 24/7 hotline where you can receive support from carafem throughout the entire process.
