West Virginia

You can get an abortion in West Virginia but only with an in-person provider. Telemedicine to administer medication abortion is prohibited.

  • West Virginia requires state-directed counseling, then waiting 24 hours before having an abortion. This can be done on the phone
  • If you are under age 18 in West Virginia, a parent or guardian must be notified about your abortion. If this is not an option for you, contact the JB Hotline.
