About SASS: Self Managed Abortion; Safe and Supported
Self-managed Abortion; Safe and Supported
SASS – Self-managed Abortion; Safe and Supported is a project of Women Help Women. Women Help Women supports the rights of people around the world to have information about and access to safe abortion with pills. Inquiries are answered by the skilled counselors of Women Help Women.
The primary goal of SASS is to provide information and support to women in the USA around self managed abortion, to reduce any negative health impact associated with unsafe abortion methods, and to ensure that self-managed abortions are medically and legally as safe as possible.
SASS is more than an information service. SASS is also an advocacy and research project and will raise the overall visibility of the safety and prevalence of women choosing to do their own abortions without a clinician involved and create evidence for advocacy. The goal is to demonstrate the acceptability and safety of self-managed medication abortion to inform future efforts at deregulating these essential medicines and to strengthen advocacy efforts for expanded access to all safe options that are needed, including self-managed abortion and clinical care.
