Here are some things to think about when planning an abortion.

Travel or childcare

If you need to travel to get an abortion, there are organizations that can help you find a place to stay.

ACCESS Reproductive Justice may help you find and pay for:

  • Lodging
  • Transportation
  • Meals
  • Childcare

The National Network of Abortion Funds can also help you find a fund that will help with your travel costs.

If you have kids or other dependents, see if a friend can watch them during the procedure. Even if you’re using abortion pills, it can be helpful to have someone to help you that first day.
