"I need an abortion" project
Our online abortion service helps women and pregnant people who have problems accessing safe abortion and who are under 10 weeks pregnant.
Women on Web is working to expand access to safe abortion services to protect women’s and pregnant people’s health and lives. Abortion is one of the most performed medical intervention in the word. Still, many women are unable to exercise their sexual and reproductive rights and are denied access to abortion care.
We ask women and pregnant people to complete an online consultation that is reviewed by our medical team. If there are no contraindications, the medicines will be provided via mail.
A medical abortion is carried out by using two medicines Mifepristone and Misoprostol. The medicines induce an abortion that resembles a miscarriage. They can be safely administered at home without medical supervision. Medical abortion consisting of using these two drugs is 98-99% effective and has a very low risk of complications. Both medicines are on the World Health Organization’s list of essential medicines, which outlines critical medicines that should be available worldwide.
