Thanks to all of our amazing supporters, we were able to reach our goal and raised more than $30,000 to support training clinicians to provide medication abortion! We are on our way to training 500 clinicians in medication abortion to increase access to abortion care across the country. In 2019 alone, we have already trained over 100 clinicians, and have more scheduled and in the works. NPR also did a story in May featuring a medication abortion workshop we hosted in Boston. They did a great job highlighting both the need and RHAP’s approach to expanding access to abortion.
We are doing everything in our power to make medication abortion accessible in primary care. Given the recent influx of state and federal restrictions on abortion, medication abortion care is needed now more than ever! Primary care clinicians offer all kinds of services, from getting yearly physicals, treatment for the flu, managing chronic illnesses, to so much more. Offering abortion care in primary care settings means normalizing abortion and allowing patients to receive services without having to walk by protestors.
If you did not get the chance to contribute to our spring appeal campaign to support our training program, you still can! Support abortion care in primary care settings by donating to train one or more clinicians today.
