The TelAbortion Study is a research project that aims to evaluate the use of telemedicine for providing a medical abortion to women who have difficulty getting to an abortion clinic.
After consulting with an abortion provider by videoconference, qualifying participants are sent the necessary abortion medicines by overnight mail. The study collects data to determine how well this service model works and whether women like this telemedicine approach for providing abortion.
Currently, only women living in the states of Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, and Maine are eligible to participate in this study. We hope that if this proves to be a feasible approach it will be expanded to serve women in other states.
