Careers

safe2choose is growing and expanding, so we need more bright and experienced people to help us accomplish our mission – to connect women all around the world to accurate and individualized information on medical abortion pills, so that they can have a safe abortion where, when and with whom they feel most comfortable.

There are different procedures to end a pregnancy safely. At safe2choose, we specialize in sharing information about medical abortion in the first 10 weeks of pregnancy. At this stage you can have a safe abortion with pills using Misoprostol or both Mifepristone and Misoprostol. We’re dedicated to removing barriers and increasing access to safe abortion care and to promoting women’s sexual and reproductive autonomy. We do so by educating them on how to access and use the abortion pills.

Our commitments:

  • We provide information based on the most up-to-date scientific evidence about abortion.
  • We offer free counseling services that are safe, confidential, convenient, and free from judgment and stigma.
  • We do our best to refer you to trustworthy, pro-choice organizations when needed.
  • We are easy to reach, friendly and supportive.
  • We respect your right to make your own decisions regarding your health and your life.
