Ipas and the Center for Reproductive Rights have developed a fact sheet answering frequently asked questions about medical abortion (also known as medication abortion or abortion will pills) and the self-management of abortion.
Questions covered in the fact sheet include:
- What is a medical abortion and self-managed abortion?
- How safe and effective is a medical abortion?
- What do international human rights bodies say about these topics?
The FAQ document also addresses the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on self-managed abortions and a set of recommendations that, if implemented, would improve access to services and respect, protect and fulfil human rights.
You can download the factsheets in English, French and Spanish via the Center for Reproductive Rights’ website.
