Is this legal?
Yes, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved mifepristone (the first of two medicines used in a medication abortion) in 2000 to end pregnancies up to 11 weeks, and since 2021 has allowed providers like Hey Jane to mail abortion pills to patients. Currently, Hey Jane is serving patients in states that do not have any restrictions surrounding telemedication abortion. To find out more about what is legal in your state and where to go if you are at a later stage in your pregnancy and want an abortion, visit ineedana.com, call the National Abortion Federation hotline, or visit If/When/How. The Guttmacher Institute also provides a state-by-state breakdown of current abortion laws. All links can be found on our Resources page, too.
