Self-Managed Abortion

Self-Managed Abortion

RHAP believes that all people should have access to the full range of safe abortion options, including self-managed abortion (SMA), to end a pregnancy safely and with dignity on their own terms. SMA is an issue of human rights and reproductive justice: providing people with the tools and information to manage their abortion enables them to exercise bodily autonomy and to be in control of their health and well-being. Check out our blog post from 2022 describing RHAP’s perspective on self-managed abortion. 

We are developing and updating our abortion care training materials to incorporate SMA topics and values. We have worked in coalition to propose policy at the American Public Health Association to decriminalize and support SMA. We participate in national communities to communicate and advance the decriminalization of and access to SMA, as well as post-abortion care for those who may need it. We offer educational resources on having an abortion with pills – with more info sheets to come. And, we are building out clinical tools and resources to support primary care clinicians to care for and counsel patients seeking SMA.
