South Dakota

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

  • South Dakota requires state-directed counseling, then waiting 72 hours before having an abortion. This counseling will require two trips to the clinic.
  • If you are under age 18 in South Dakota, a parent or guardian must be notified of abortion. If this is not an option for you, contact the JB Hotline.
