Take action to save telemedical abortion services
Telemedical abortion care was introduced in April 2020. It allows women to receive abortion medication by post following a consultation with a qualified nurse or midwife.
While other healthcare services have been suspended or seen significant increases in waiting times during the pandemic, access to abortion has not only been maintained but has improved, enabling women to end pregnancies at the earliest possible gestations.
The government is currently considering whether to revoke the service. This would force all women to travel and attend at least one in-clinic appointment. If telemedical abortion care is revoked, early medical abortion at home would be recriminalised. This means women could go to prison for life if caught using safe, medical abortion pills at home.
We are fighting to protect this service beyond the pandemic. We need your help.
