We are a team of doctors, advanced practitioners and caring support staff with decades of experience in compassionate & comprehensive abortion care. We envision a world in which abortion is not merely accessible, but equitable.
Abortion by mail — fast, easy, convenient.
AOD gets abortion pills to people who need them as quickly and safely as possible. As pioneers in telemedicine abortion, our team has more than two decades of collective experience in abortion care. We serve the largest geographic footprint of any legal US provider.
Serving patients, supporting clinics.
We know that being pro-choice means supporting ALL the safe methods by which pregnant people choose to access abortion. Telemedicine utilizes technology that is not yet accessible to everyone everywhere, so AOD’s platform is built to donate back to in-person clinics doing this sacred work.
Our growing team has deep roots working, training, and teaching in independent abortion clinics. In order to ensure that pregnant people will always have a place to go when they need or want in-clinic care, AOD donates to Keep Our Clinics.
We're in the news!
Meet our core clinical team
Jamie Phifer, MD
Dr Phifer (she/her) is a board-certified family physician with abortion care experience in all gestations over the last decade. She previously served as Associate Medical Director for a Washington-based later gestation clinic and traveled throughout the US to train and work with in-clinic abortion care providers, work she continues to pursue in the South and Midwest. Prior to launching AOD, she worked on the Research Outcomes and Clinical Quality team for a telehealth start-up where she built automated text-based primary care telehealth protocols for behavioral health and contraception management. She believes abortion should be as straight-forward as possible and on patients’ own terms. When she is not being an abortion nerd, Dr Phifer likes exploring new cities by the quality of their local breweries and teaching her giant dog not to hog the couch.
Leah Coplon CNM, MPH
Director of Clinical Operations
Leah (she/her) is a nurse-midwife and has spent her entire career in reproductive health, from her first job as a medical assistant at at a Planned Parenthood; to working as a labor and delivery nurse delivering babies and teaching nursing students; to running an independent abortion clinic in her state. With a deep research background, she also is a co-author on a direct-to-patient protocol released early in the COVID-19 pandemic to assist clinicians in providing care via telehealth and on the first large-scale research study in the US evaluating this protocol. Leah believes that any reason someone wants to have an abortion is the right reason and no one should ever have to explain or justify their decision about whether or when to have children. When she is not training clinicians and researching abortion, Leah loves spending time by the ocean, cooking, and being with her family.
Patient Care Coordinator
Erin (she/her) quickly became obsessed with learning all things abortion related after having her own abortion experience. She went on to work at an independent abortion clinic in Pennsylvania as a patient advocate where she served as an interpreter for Spanish-speaking patients and supporting patients throughout their abortion journeys. Not only is Erin the kind voice patients hear when they call AOD during daytime hours, she also works directly with local abortion funds to provide financial assistance and coordinates direct referrals for those who need additional care. She believes abortion is freedom. When she is not providing virtual hugs for abortion seekers, Erin enjoys cooking, writing, and snuggling her two kitties.
Mary (she/her) is a board-certified family nurse practitioner who has been involved in abortion care and advocacy since her first job out of college as a medical assistant at an abortion clinic. There she felt that she had found her life’s purpose. She has since spent the majority of her career providing full-scope primary care in community health and is now working to improve access to mental health care for the uninsured and underinsured via telemedicine. A lifelong nerd, Mary continues to volunteer in abortion access and is currently pursuing another advanced degree. She believes it is an honor and a privilege to be an abortion provider and often helps provide care on AOD’s busier clinic days. When she is not doomscrolling Twitter or killing houseplants, Mary likes sewing, learning to roller skate, and spending time with family and friends.
