Women on Web is available to all people who need help with preventing and ending unwanted pregnancies. We are committed to ensuring that everyone, including trans, non-binary, genderqueer, and gender non-conforming people can safely access abortion and contraception without discrimination or alienation.

The Women on Web website is a source of reliable information and has a collection of personal experiences. It supports access to contraception and safe abortion services to protect women and pregnant people’s lives and health.

Women on Web receives thousands of emails everyday from all around the world. Supervised by medical doctors, helpdesk members answer these emails in many languages, including English, Spanish, Portugese, French, Thai, Korean, and others. 

World Health Organisation researcher Gunatra stated that access to abortion pills through the telemedicine service Women on Web is considered a safe abortion. Research about the Women on Web services has been published in several scientific journals Click here to read full articles online.
