Medical Abortion: Putting the Power into the Hands of Women and Girls

October 14, 2021

RSVP

Join Pathfinder International, Global Fund for Women, DKT International, and MAMA Network as we “connect the dots” on medical abortion by exploring the critical linkages among global strategy, feminist grassroots activism, and supply chain—and find out how you can help support efforts to expand access to medical abortion across the globe.

During this roundtable discussion, we’ll delve into the role that medical abortion plays in safe abortion access and achieving universal health coverage. As diverse actors working to ensure abortion access and better health outcomes for women, we aim to spark an honest cross-actor dialogue so we can work better together, learn from each other, and clear up common misconceptions.

Medical abortion, as a de-medicalized model, is especially vital in contexts where criminalization is high, where colonial penal codes and policy conflict, where surgical abortions are unavailble or financially prohibitive, and where refusals of service are common practice. The obstacles to medical abortion are numerous and complex—as are the strategies for addressing them. The purpose of our conversation is to convene experts with different perspectives but similar goals so that we can build bridges across our distinct areas of work.
