hi. i was wondering
do you need a parent to get the abortion pills?
If you are under 18, your state may require one or both of your parents to give permission for your abortion or be told of your decision prior to the abortion.
However, in most states you can ask a judge to excuse you from these requirements. The procedure is called a “judicial bypass.”
To find out more about the law in your state and the judicial bypass option, call the nearest Planned Parenthood center at 1-800-230-PLAN.
Hope this information helps!
