Writing for Jezebel last year, Dr. Meera Shah described just a few of the many reasons why pregnant people might prefer self-managed (or self-induced) abortion to an abortion performed in a clinic.
Medication abortion is the method of safely and effectively inducing a miscarriage using FDA-approved abortion pills. Medication abortion can be used to end a pregnancy up to 10 weeks from the first day of your last period.
When asked about his dissent in the Priests for Life case, Brett Kavanaugh said that by filling out a form the employer did not want to be “complicit in the provision of the abortion-inducing drugs.” This rhetoric, conflating contraception and abortion, is used by anti-choice activists to intentionally confuse the issue.

When we think of reproductive justice, our minds tend to gravitate towards subjects like abortion rights, maternal health, and access to birth control.
The emotional experiences of a medication abortion and a spontaneously occurring miscarriage may be very different. There’s no right or wrong way to feel! But the physical process, risks, warning signs, potential complications, and treatments are the same.
Imagine you are walking along a road, trying to find a pregnancy clinic. You are looking for the one you found online, the one that promised free services and counseling surrounded by soft colors and pictures of kind-looking women. You stop between Hartford GYN Center and Hartford Women’s Center, no more than 30 feet away from each other.
