She may want to consider paying out of pocket for the birth control. The cost of birth control varies depending on the type. Birth control pills, for example, cost between $15 and $50 a month. She may also need a medical exam in order to get a prescription, which would cost somewhere between $35 and $250. Planned Parenthood offers services on a sliding scale fee, so she may be eligible to receive services at reduced cost. To find out for sure, she will have to contact her local Planned Parenthood clinic.
For the first month of taking birth control pills it is recommended to also use a backup form of birth control, like condoms. After the first month, a backup method is not needed as long as the person is using their birth control consistently (every day, preferably around the same time) and correctly.

You do not need to show your insurance for an abortion. If you’re concerned about your parents finding out, your other option is to pay out of pocket for the procedure. An abortion typically costs between $300 and $950 but you will have to contact your local clinic to find out an exact cost. Since Planned Parenthood offers services on a sliding scale fee depending on income, you may be eligible for financial assistance.
Just going to add that most of the abortions that take place within the third trimester only occur because delivery of the baby would kill the person giving birth to it.
Today is the 41st anniversary of Roe v. Wade! We created this graphic because 70% of Americans support the principles of Roe, and we need to show anti-choice politicians around the country that we won’t be silent while they work to take away our reproductive rights. LIKE and SHARE it so we can show them, loud and clear, that pro-choice values are American values.
