By safe2choose counseling team. 

Following the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, healthcare and reproductive service providers around the world are fighting to maintain abortion as an essential healthcare service and making sure that access to abortion services and information is not compromised.

At safe2choose, we continue to provide accurate information about safe abortion via email and live chat in a variety of languages including  English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Hindi, Punjabi, Kiswahili, Hebrew, Arabic, Wolof. During this global pandemic, it remains a priority for us that women and girls around the world are provided with the means to safely proceed with their abortions.

Many women and girls are currently facing situations where abortion is not considered an emergency healthcare service, while others face the challenge of limited access to doctors and pharmacies because of lockdowns. With the Abortion Essentials Kit list, we aim to support you through the COVID-19 crisis challenges and allow you to be prepared with the necessary information.

The Abortion Essentials Kit provides you with the list of essential items to gather prior to starting your abortion with pills process at home or anywhere else you feel safe, so you can be prepared and only focus on your self-care during the procedure.
