Board Opportunities

Just the Pill

Founded to address reproductive health care disparities in rural communities, we began providing medication abortion by mail in Minnesota in October 2020. When the Supreme Court banned mail‐order medication in January 2021, we spent three months in a mobile clinic delivering medication abortion to patients directly until the ban was reversed. That year, we expanded to Montana and Wyoming. In our first year we provided medication abortion to 1,300 patients from fifteen states. We are now seeing over 250 patients monthly and have manufactured two mobile clinics capable of providing medication and (for the first time in America) mobile procedural abortion.

We will continue telehealth consultations in the 4 states we currently serve and build up our capacity in our mobile clinics that operate in Colorado and then launch mobile clinics in Minnesota.

Mission

Just the Pill is a Minnesota-based abortion provider offering medication abortion and birth control by mail and mobile clinics in Minnesota, Montana, Wyoming, and Colorado. Just The Pill focuses on using innovative mechanisms to expand abortion access in underserved communities. We have examined traditional practices in the industry and use new technology to challenge barriers to access like overall cost, demands on time, and physical distance from care. We streamline patient experience, reduce operating expenses with the effect of lower patient fees, and bring services directly to the patient, whether through the mail or mobile clinics. Ultimately, we respond to intensifying abortion bans by ramping up services in adjacent states, reducing travel burdens for patients, and creating new pathways for accessing care.
