Abortion Resources for Texans and Beyond

From counseling to contraception to legal services, here are your options

As of the most recent update to this resource guide, it is still legal to seek an abortion in Texas, but those who provide abortions or assist people with obtaining abortions can be subject to criminal and civil penalties under the Texas Penal Code or Senate Bill 8, unless they are acting to save the life of the pregnant person.

Current Texas law requires physicians to examine patients in person before providing abortion medication and bans the delivery of such medications by mail. Texans continue to receive pills through the mail anyway, as patients who use tele­medicine for abortions are not criminally liable. Some states have prosecuted such patients under different laws, though. (The Food and Drug Administration has approved abortion medications for up to 10 weeks' gestation.)
