Lockdown Limits Access To Legal Abortion in Colombia. Telemedicine Is – AuthenticAfrican

Posted on by NPR - Africa News

With access to medical care limited during the pandemic, patients in countries where abortion is legal, such as Colombia, the United Kingdom and the United States, are turning to telemedicine for a prescription for drugs like mifeprostone and misoprostol to end a pregnancy.

The pandemic has caused some abortion providers to close and made it more difficult for citizens to go out. Clinics are looking for alternatives.
