RHAP Beyond Roe: Self-managed Abortion


Self-sourced medication abortion or self-managed abortion (SMA) is “safe, effective, and empowering.” It offers an important alternative to clinical care, especially now that the U.S. Supreme Court is poised to decimate the legal right to abortion. SMA is a reproductive justice and human rights issue; providing people with the tools and information to manage their abortion enables them to exercise their bodily autonomy and to be in control of their health and well-being. 

The Reproductive Health Access Project believes all people should have access to the full range of safe abortion options, including self-managed care, to end a pregnancy safely and with dignity on their own terms. RHAP is proud to offer educational resources to support individuals having an abortion with pills, as well as  clinicians caring for patients who self-manage their abortion and may have questions. 

As RHAP develops new resources and provides clinicians and people seeking care education and support, we follow the leadership of grassroots, feminist, and reproductive justice organizations, communities, and individuals around the world who have long been doing the work to support SMA.
