Who We Are

Women on Web is a Canadian non-profit organization and online abortion service. We support people to access safe abortion pills in almost 200 countries.

What We Do

For the last 17 years Women on Web has pioneered safe abortion services through mail, paving the way for remote and discreet abortion care around the world.  

We are an international team of help desk workers, activists, researchers, medical providers, and digital rights advocates, specialized in finding solutions to getting abortion pills into the most restricted contexts.

Our team has supported more than 100,000 people to access safe and affordable online abortion care centered around the rights, privacy and preferences of women and pregnant people. 

Meet our team 

We set ambitious and long-term goals to improve abortion access and work toward a future where abortion pills are sold in pharmacies without prescription. 

We are driven by social and digital innovations that expand abortion access and passionate about empowering everyone with actionable, evidence-based abortion information.  

Together with local partners, we run fearless and innovative campaigns to raise awareness of the transformative power of abortion pills.

Women on Web has published over 20 research papers about the safety and efficacy of our service and telemedicine abortion in general. In countries where abortion is legal, our research is fueling action against persistent access barriers.

Abortion Pill Service 

If you need an abortion, you can request abortion pills through our online consultation 

If you’re not pregnant but want to request abortion pills for future use, please fill out this online consultation. 

The consultation is reviewed by our medical team. After they provide a prescription for the abortion pills, the medicines are sent to you by mail. The service is open for people who have early pregnancies and no medical contraindications. 

Before, during and after the abortion, you can email our help desk that works 7 days/week and operates in 16 different languages. You can also find answers to frequently asked questions in Q&A or in the comprehensive abortion pill guide. 

Our service is available to all people who need help ending their pregnancies. We are committed to ensuring that everyone, including trans, non-binary, genderqueer, and gender non-conforming people can safely access abortion without discrimination or alienation. 

Our Story 

Women on Web was established in 2005 by Dr Rebecca Gomperts, a Dutch physician and renowned abortion activist who also leads Women on Waves and Aid Access. 

Women on Web was established to transcend national borders and reach the most restricted settings with safe abortion services. Thanks to Dr Gompert’s pioneering work, telemedicine abortion is an increasingly common service pathway supported by the best scientific evidence. Today, more people than ever choose to access abortion pills online as a private and empowering way to end their pregnancies. 

Our Values and Vision 

Women and pregnant people should be trusted to make decisions about their own bodies. People can safely and effectively self-manage an abortion with pills when they have access to high quality medication and information.  

Abortion is essential health care and a fundamental human right. Abortion restrictions are scientifically unsound and harmful. They disproportionally impact the most marginalized people: Black people and people of color, migrants, young people, poor people, people living in remote areas and victims of violence and conflict. 

Women on Web works towards a world where anyone can access abortion with respect and dignity. We envision a future where home abortions are normalized, safe and supported by clinicians, policymakers, and the general public.  

We recognize that each person’s abortion journey is shaped by a wide range of medical and non-medical actors, including feminist collectives, hotlines, digital platforms, friends, family, and other support networks.
