English 1.800.376.4636
Español 1.888.442.2237


The heart of their work is their bilingual ACCESS Healthline, and it is a crucial link to resources for people in need of reproductive healthcare.  They provide free and confidential information, referrals, advocacy and peer counseling on the full range of reproductive and sexual health issues, with a special expertise in pregnancy options and abortion services.

Call ACCESS if you have questions regarding: abortion, birth control, pregnancy, prenatal care, emergency contraception, pap smears, infertility, STIs & HIV, adoption, midwifery, teen health, safer sex and relationships, health insurance, or where to find a reproductive healthcare provider.

ACCESS  connects people with free and low-cost programs that pay for this care, such as FamilyPACT, Medi-Cal or AIM (Access for Infants and Mothers).  They also refer to organizations that can help with  other issues such as domestic violence, sexual assault, drug addiction, homelessness and child care.  They offer a dedicated full-time Spanish healthline and additional languages may be provided.

They may also be able to help with transportation, housing or funding if you have to travel a long way to get to an abortion provider. Their services are open to all women and men living in California — your age, income, insurance or immigration status does not matter!
