  • abortion self-care, basically empowers a woman or girl to administer safe abortion drugs without necessarily getting prescription from the health service provider. the concept of abortion self-care empowers the woman to be in charge and make choices for themselves. it is important since it minimizes abortion stigma in the community, it helps to avoid use of crude methods of pregnancy termination like inserting sticks, drinking detergent which can be life threatening. We can engage with policy makers to advocate for self-care but also participate in different platforms where abortion self-care information can be easily disseminated among several implementers for example the Coalition to Stop Maternal Mortality Due to Unsafe Abortion.




  • abortion self-care helps to address issues of long clinic waiting hours since the woman will access their drugs and go home to have the whole process there. issues of attitude are also addressed since there is minimal interaction between the service provider and the client. the challenges rotate around the restrictive environment in the country. drugshop operators fear to have the abortion drugs in fear of the law and even those that have do not observe proper storage and handling of the drug which compromises drug efficacy

  • I think one of the most important actions would be to promote education about the importance of people having access to safe and legal abortion services. In addition, it is important to fight for the reproductive rights of women and pregnant women around the world, including access to quality medical services, the promotion of gender equality and the fight against discrimination. It is also critical to support organizations working for reproductive rights and to enable equal access to medical information and technology. Ultimately, I believe that societal support and the elimination of stigmas are essential to ensure that all people have effective reproductive rights, including the right to abortion.
