Can I Buy the Abortion Pill Online?

An unplanned pregnancy can bring a host of concerns and unknowns to a pregnant woman. If this is you, you may worry about the future. Are you considering ordering the abortion pill online?

Technically, the abortion pill is legal in our state, but you may not bypass a medical clinic and order it online. Georgia also has other restrictions in place, including limitations on the gestational age for receiving abortion pills and the requirement of an ultrasound report to confirm the absence of a heartbeat.

Read this article to learn about state restrictions and your best next step.

What Other Abortion Restrictions Does Georgia Have? 

There are Georgia restrictions around abortion you should be aware of: 

  • Pregnant women cannot use the abortion pill method after about six weeks of pregnancy (when a fetal heartbeat can usually be detected) unless certain exceptions apply.
  • The patient must provide an ultrasound report to prove that there is no heartbeat, which typically develops around the 6th week of pregnancy.
  • Legal exceptions include pregnancies that threaten the life or health of the mother, the pregnancy is not viable, the fetus will not survive, or the pregnancy is a result of reported rape or incest.

Where Can I Get an Ultrasound?

Although we do not perform or refer for abortion, we offer no-cost pregnancy services at PRC Medical, including pregnancy testing and the mandatory ultrasound. An ultrasound can also help you determine the gestational age (how far along you are) and the pregnancy’s location (some pregnancies form outside the uterus). 

What if I’m in My Second Trimester?

You have other options if you find yourself beyond six weeks gestational age or later. 

In addition to free ultrasounds, we offer option consultations to provide a supportive space to express your concerns, ask questions, explore available choices, and gain information about local resources and assistance.
