“What we know now, because of the pandemic, is we don’t actually need that physical visit to the doctor,” said Destiny Lopez, co-president of the abortion rights organization All* Above All. “Telehealth exists, it’s a pretty common way of delivering health care and it’s a safe way to deliver and dispense medication abortion. You do a telehealth visit with your doctor, you are provided with the pills via mail or maybe you run to the clinic and you pick them up, but you don’t have to go through the entire process of having to wait and then see the doctor.”
Tell Congress to Support the Abortion Justice Act!
We need to guarantee the legal right to abortion and ensure that everyone can get abortion care without politicians creating barriers.
That’s why we need the Abortion Justice Act, a groundbreaking federal bill that protects people’s right to make their own healthcare decisions about abortion, improves availability and affordability, and prevents politicians from creating barriers to care.
