An individual’s ability to self-manage an abortion is an essential facet of reproductive autonomy. While progress has been made in the liberalization of abortion laws and increased access to medication abortion, legal and policy barriers to self-managed abortion remain pervasive across the globe.
On Monday, October 3, you can join a dialogue on access and barriers to self-managed abortion at “Legal and Practical Barriers to Self-Managed Abortion: Comparative Perspectives from Across the Globe,” a webinar from the Center for Reproductive Rights.
Free and open to the public, the webinar will feature experts from across the globe who’ll share their experiences advancing self-care interventions and the importance of self-managed abortion in accessing abortion care.
“Self-managed abortion is essential for guaranteeing true reproductive autonomy. At a time when reproductive rights are under attack, it’s critical to examine how we can make this a reality for millions of people across the globe,” said Katherine Mayall. the Center’s Director of Strategic Initiatives.
