From The New York Times to Politico, Insider, Elle, and MedPage Today, carafem’s virtual health care is making headlines for being innovative and adapting quickly to COVID-19:
“What we’ve noticed since the pandemic started, is that it ultimately became even more challenging for people to travel. Necessity oftentimes breeds innovation. Abortion doesn’t stop being a necessity because of things going on in the world around it.” – Melissa Grant, Chief Operations Officer of carafem
We’ve been providing abortion pill care via secure video consultation for several years and have helped over a thousand people have a safe abortion via telemedicine. This method has not only proven to be effective but we’ve also saved several clients a great deal of time and anxiety in trying to travel to a clinic to find an abortion — especially if they live in one of the majority of US counties with no abortion provider.
In times of uncertainty and possibly a great deal of change, carafem is committed to using innovative solutions to ensure people can exercise their right to quality health care and accurate medical information. We’re pleased to offer clients the abortion care they need, whenever they need it. Schedule an Abortion Pills by Mail appointment online or by calling 855-SAY-CARA.
