Attorney General Jennings has announced the launch of the Attorney General’s Abortion Legal Helpline, a collaborative initiative led by the Department of Justice with support from nearly a dozen partner law firms, and several nonprofit and advocacy groups including the ACLU of Delaware, Planned Parenthood of Delaware, the First State Abortion Fund, Delaware NOW (National Organization for Women), Black Mothers in Power, the Southern Delaware Alliance for Racial Justice, and Women’s March Sussex.

The Helpline will provide free legal advice to anyone in need of guidance after the Supreme Court’s June Dobbs decision, including: “know your rights” guidance and referrals to Delawareans seeking abortions; patients seeking to travel to Delaware to obtain an abortion; people and organizations providing support to these patients; and healthcare providers.

The AG’s Abortion Legal Helpline can be reached at (302) 992-8096 or toll-free at (877) 312-2366. In order to ensure anonymity, callers will be asked to leave a message with their question, a callback number, and any instructions on when or how they prefer to be contacted.  Those who prefer not to call may also submit written questions online at

The Helpline’s cost-free team of lawyers is managed through the Department of Justice, and intake for questions and referrals will be jointly administered by the Department of Justice and the ACLU of Delaware. Legal questions will be answered on a pro bono basis by attorneys in partner law firms, while service and support referrals will be referred to partner nonprofits including Planned Parenthood of Delaware and the First State Abortion Fund.

The Helpline will also develop legal resources for patients, providers, and supporters; provide guidance on organizational policies to support access to reproductive healthcare; research and advise on organizational policies in order to support access to reproductive healthcare; and participate in litigation and other efforts to protect and improve access to reproductive healthcare.

Abortion is legal in Delaware and abortion rights have been codified under Delaware law since 2017. Recently, Delaware’s General Assembly passed additional legislation expanding abortion access for Delawareans and visitors to our state, including laws protecting providers of abortions and out of state residents seeking or receiving pregnancy termination in Delaware by limiting extradition; protecting medical records; shielding patients from civil actions in other states; and expanding the State’s capacity to provide access to abortion and abortion medication.
