  6. Laws in AZ, AR, MO, LA, TX, and WV specifically ban telehealth for abortion consultations. ND, SD, NE, KS, OK, MS, AL, TN, KY, IN, NC, and SC “have enacted laws that require the clinician providing a medication abortion to be physically present during the procedure, effectively prohibiting the use of telehealth to dispense medication for abortion remotely.” All other states allow telehealth to be used for dispensing medication abortion in line with FDA regulations.
