What types of abortion appointments can I go to remotely (using telehealth)?

ribbon Medically reviewed Aug 2020 by Robin Watkins, CNM, WHNP-BC

Some states have laws that allow you to do your counseling appointment via telehealth, and then do your ultrasound and abortion at the same appointment, if you have to travel a long distance to get an abortion. These laws prevent you from having to travel a long distance twice or having to stay far from home during the waiting period. If you’re going to have to travel a long way for your abortion, ask if virtual counseling is an option when you call to make your appointment.
