Medication Abortions via Telehealth Increase 136% Since Supreme Court’s June 2022 Ruling

The Society of Family Planning's report reveals that medication abortions provided by virtual-only providers have increased by 136% since the Supreme Court eliminated the constitutional right to abortion in June 2022. Total abortions decreased by 2%, and the Guttmacher Institute found that medication abortions already accounted for more than half of all US abortions in 2020. The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals recently ruled to preserve but narrow access to an abortion pill across the U.S., and the rate of medication abortions is likely to continue to rise.
