Taking Control of Our Reproductive Health — Self Managed Abortion, Safe and Supported

We must become informed about technologies that impact our reproductive lives, and build strategies to put these technologies into our own hands. In this workshop, participants will learn about how abortion pills work, and how they are used safely with and without medical supervision. We will discuss legal issues, with a focus on the U.S., and how to mitigate legal risk for those using abortion pills outside of the medical system. We will also talk about how self managed abortion is an empowerment strategy which incorporates the core principles of reproductive justice. Resources for continuing education on these issues will be distributed. As a group, we will brainstorm innovative strategies for spreading information to vulnerable communities in the U.S., learning from models used in other countries.
