This week marks two years since the deeply regrettable overturning of Roe v Wade. This devastating decision continues to negatively impact peoples' right to make their own informed health decisions. With countless new adverse legislation continuing to pop up, it is clear the fight for bodily autonomy is far from over. 

With this unfortunate “new normal,” it can be difficult and overwhelming to figure out how and where to get the care you need. We’re here to help guide you through this difficult time and support your sexual and reproductive health journey, always. 

Birth Control 

Birth control offers many safe and convenient options to help prevent pregnancy. Birth control pills can be requested through the Planned Parenthood Direct app, shipped for free, and delivered discreetly to your door. Additionally, pills, the ring, and the patch can also be requested and sent to your local pharmacy for pickup. 

Morning-after Pill (Emergency Contraception)  

ella® is a prescription strength morning-after medication that helps prevent pregnancy. You can request ella though the Planned Parenthood Direct app, for immediate use or to keep on hand for future use. These pills lower your chances of becoming pregnant by 85 percent if taken as instructed within 5 days after having unprotected sex. 

The Abortion Pill 

The abortion pill is a safe and effective way to end a pregnancy of up to 11 weeks. We offer this service up to 10 weeks to ensure that you receive your medicine in time. The abortion pill is currently only available in HI, IL, MD, and WA. 

We are still here—to empower you, stand with you, and help you navigate this new, uncharted realm of reproductive health. The road ahead may be difficult, but together, we will never stop fighting.
