You can get an abortion in Ohio but only with an in-person provider.
- Ohio requires state-directed counseling, then waiting 24 hours before having an abortion. This counseling has to be done at the clinic.
- Most patients are required to have an ultrasound in Ohio.
- If you are under age 18 in Ohio a parent or guardian must give permission for your abortion. If this is not an option for you, contact the JB Hotline.
