under 18

and need an abortion?

We're here for you.


As of August 1, 2023, abortion is available in Indiana only under very limited circumstances. We know this is a confusing and scary time for people seeking abortion care, and we are here to help you understand your options.

Under the new law, people can only get an abortion in Indiana if they meet one of the exceptions – if their pregnancy is the result of rape or incest, if they have been diagnosed with a lethal fetal anomaly, or if the pregnancy poses a serious threat to their life or physical health.

If you are under 18 years old, you will also need to get consent of one parent or guardian, or to get a judicial bypass, before you can have an abortion in Indiana, unless the pregnancy poses a serious threat to your life or physical health.

We can help you understand your options, explain how the judicial bypass process works, and connect you to a free lawyer and funding assistance for your abortion if needed. Simply text or call us at (314) 476-6917.

You can also leave the state to access abortion care. For example, Illinois has no parental involvement laws, which means that young people can have an abortion without involving a parent in the decision. Visit for the most up-to-date info on where you can get a legal abortion.
