Putting the medications for abortions into our hands – what every activist needs to know, with Susan Yanow
Wednesday, March 25 2015, 6-8:30pm
At Encuentro 5, Harrison Ave.
Around the world in countries where abortion is legally restricted, women have used misoprostol to safely end an unwanted pregnancy. Many women have brought that knowledge with them to the US, and as more abortion restrictions pass in the States, people are turning to self-induction with abortion pills. This workshop will share the WHO approved protocol for using misoprostol and explore the unique context of the U.S., where abortion is legal but increasingly unavailable.
About Susan Yanow: A long-time reproductive rights activist, Susan works to expand access to abortion domestically and nationally through consulting projects with organizations including Ibis Reproductive Health, the Reproductive Health Access Project and Venture Strategies (VHSD). She is a cofounder of Women Help Women, an international organization that provides abortion and contraception services, and of Expanding Abortion Services in the South(EASE). Susan serves on the Boards of the ACLU of Massachusetts, the Cambridge Commission on the Status of Women, and Chennai Children.
