Abstract

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to reshape our lives and health systems, Council Program Director Thoai Ngo and President of Ibis Reproductive Health Kelly Blanchard share their views on abortion care during these unprecedented times in an opinion piece for Thomson Reuters Foundation News. Citing two new evidence reviews on women’s ability to manage abortions with safe and effective medicines during early pregnancy, the authors support self-managed abortion during—and after—this pandemic as a method that puts less strain on health systems and allows women access who might be hampered by isolation and distancing mandated in response to COVID-19.
