TIME Article: Republican States Crack Down on Access to Abortion Pills as Supreme Court Decision Looms
Today, TIME published an article reporting on the current landscape of medication abortion in the United States. Abigail Abrams’ piece Republican States Crack Down on Abortion Pills as Supreme Court Decision Looms includes quotes from Dr. Elizabeth Raymond, senior medical associate at Gynuity, and references the impact of TelAbortion on abortion access.
Gynuity started work on this first direct-to-user telemedicine abortion service in the U.S. in 2016 when people wanting to communicate with abortion providers by videoconference or phone and then receive abortion pills by mail was a newly emerging idea. Data from this research supported the long-awaited national policy change regarding mifepristone’s in-person dispensing requirements.
