North Carolina

You can get an abortion in North Carolina but only with an in-person provider. Telemedicine for abortion care is prohibited in the state.

  • If you are under age 18 in North Carolina, a parent or guardian must give permission for your abortion. If this is not an option for you, contact Text Abby.
