South Carolina

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

  • South Carolina requires state-directed counseling, then waiting 24 hours before having an abortion. This counseling can be done on the phone.
  • If you are under age 17 in South Carolina, a parent or guardian must give permission for your abortion. If this is not an option for you, contact Text Abby.
