Are unmarried women able to obtain a medication abortion in the US?

 

Unmarried women are not restricted from obtaining abortion services in the US and the consent of a husband or partner is not required in order to obtain abortion care. However, a number of US states restrict minors' access to abortion care (both medication and aspiration methods). The Center for Reproductive Rights provides up-to-date information about state and federal legislation affecting reproductive rights.
