Telemedicine for abortion

Telemedicine- the practice of a healthcare provider connecting remotely with a patient-has long been a goal of pro-abortion activists. With the need to protect patients from the coronavirus by asking them at stay at home, telemedicine is increasingly being employed as a way to diagnosis and offer treatment to patients and abortion activists want to see abortion included. An article in Mother Jones, The Coronavirus Is Making the Case for Abortion Via Telemedicinedetails the push to allow abortion to be “treated” remotely. It quotes Dr. Daniel Grossman, director of the research group Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health, who called telemedicine “the perfect solution” for women looking to terminate early pregnancies. He said, “Unfortunately, it’s burdened by the restrictions in 18 states that completely ban telemedicine abortion care and then it’s also restricted due to the risk evaluation and mitigation strategy for mifepristone, which limits the possibility of doing direct to patient telemedicine”, referring to the FDA regulations on Mifepristone which only allow the drug to be obtained from select health providers in person.
