Early Medical Abortion, Equality of Access, and the Telemedical Imperative

Jordan A. Parsons and Elizabeth Chloe Romanis

  • Provides a comprehensive review of the evidence demonstrating that telemedical early medical abortion up to 10 weeks' gestation is safe, effective, and acceptable to patients
  • Thoroughly examines safety-based arguments against telemedical early medical abortion and shows that they are empirically unfounded
  • Offers a comprehensive examination of the legal and regulatory landscape of abortion care in the United Kingdom and United States to demonstrate how legal and non-legal barriers intersect to make access to abortion difficult for many
  • Provides a uniquely multi-disciplined, clear and well-evidenced argument, founded upon medical, legal, and ethical sources, that there is a moral imperative to implement telemedicine in the provision of early medical abortion or maintain it where currently available
