Planned Parenthood announced Tuesday that it has started offering medical abortions in Kansas using long-distance video technology.

The decision to remotely offer medical abortions - administered through two pills – comes after a state judge agreed to temporarily allow telemedical abortions.

Planned Parenthood started providing telemed visits in its Wichita office Monday.

Patients went to the clinic for the consent process and an ultrasound exam. The medication was administered with a physician's supervision via teleconferencing.

The clinic didn't have a physician in the office so telemed allowed for the medication to be dispensed to the patient.
