For Minors: Navigating Abortion Laws & Judicial Bypass

Some states require that parents be notified or give consent for a  minor to get an abortion. Your provider can help you understand what the law is in your state and how parental notification or consent works. If you do not feel comfortable or safe involving a parent or guardian in the decision to have an abortion, you have two options: 

  • obtain a judicial bypass (permission from a judge) or 
  • request service from a provider (like Aid Access) who does telehealth from a state with special laws, called “shield laws.” 

Both options are explained in this FAQ.

36 states require parental consent or notification for minors seeking abortion care.  Parental consent means one or both of your parents or  legal guardian(s) has to sign paperwork saying that it is OK for you to have an abortion. Parental notification means that the abortion provider must tell your parent(s) or legal guardian(s) about the abortion before it is done. Abortion providers must comply with these laws if they are serving a minor who lives in a state,  travels to a state, or uses a telehealth provider in a state that requires parental consent or parental notification for abortion.  In these states, providers cannot help you if you do not have parental notification or consent. 

If you do not feel able to involve your parent(s) in your decision, there are two options you can use: 

  • If you are less than 13 weeks pregnant (counting from the first day of your last period), you can get abortion pills mailed to you from Aid Access. They serve minors in all states and territories. They are able to serve minors without parental consent or notification because they operate from states with special laws that do not require them to do this.
  • You can get a judicial bypass (permission from a judge). The process to get a judicial bypass is free, but can be complicated and requires going through a court process that may take between 1-3 weeks. This usually involves going to a court to fill out forms before setting up a meeting to talk to the judge. The Judicial Bypass Wiki can help you learn how to get a judicial bypass. Organizations like If/When/How, the ACLU, and Jane’s Due Process, and other local organizations can also help you.

Abortion Access Legal Defense Fund

Every day people across the country are being forced to navigate a chaotic and hostile landscape because of the Dobbs decision.  

That is why the National Women’s Law Center just launched the Abortion Access Legal Defense Fund, an effort designed to help people pay for expenses related to legal consequences they are facing because they have sought an abortion or helped someone obtain an abortion or information about abortion care.
