Pro Aborts Seek to Secure Abortion Gains during COVID-19

The International Campaign for Women's Right to Safe Abortion states on its Facebook page:"The Covid-19 pandemic could help to make positive changes in seeking and having an abortion a reality - by moving abortion provision into a virtual space along with so much other health care provision, not only as a consequence of Covid-19 but also because it is technically possible and has been for a long time. Safe abortion in women's hands!!"
 
The organization explains, "We have been trying to put the abortion decision into women's hands for 100 years now, ever since Alexandra Kollantai convinced Lenin to pass the first legal abortion law. It's been more than 30 years since Canada took abortion out of the law altogether, without a moment's regret since. It's been more than 30 years since we have been able to put the means of abortion into the hands of the one who is pregnant - abortion with pills. Abortion pills. Approved in France in 1988: defined as the property of women."
 
The Campaign for Abortion's view that abortion belongs solely in the hands of women is the theme for its day of abortion activism on September 28 as stated on Facebook:
 
We chose the #IManageMyAbortion theme for #28Sep  #InternationalDayofSafeAbortion2020 because it pushes the envelope.
 
"Abortion is very safe. It rarely needs a senior doctor. It rarely needs a tertiary hospital or a hospital at all. It doesn't need an anaesthetic, though it does need pain relief. It doesn't need an overnight stay - or three visits to the doctor to check if you really know what you want. It doesn't need scans or tests, before or after, certainly not routinely. And it doesn't need someone watching you go through it, unless you want them to be there with you. It's one of the safest known medical procedures and among the most common. One in every four pregnancies ends in abortion, and even so, there are 7.8 billion of us on this planet. It's time to open the window and let in some fresh air, to wake up in the present and meet the future. Abortion with pills can be very early - as soon as you miss your period - it's simple and safe!"
