Online and over-the-phone abortions made available to more Australian women

SYDNEY, Australia: Women now have another avenue for accessing medical abortions, with the launch of a new online and over-the-phone service on Wednesday.

‘Abortion Online’ will expand access to early-stage abortion for women living in remote and rural areas through its digital platform.

The founder of Sydney-based sexual and reproductive health clinic Dr Emma Boulton launched the initiative to help more Australian women.

“Though abortion has finally been decriminalized in NSW, there is a long way to go in order to provide women all across Australia with comprehensive abortion care,” the 66-year-old founder said.

“In Australia, there is a great deal of variation in the legal status of abortion between the states, so access to basic health care services such as abortion becomes a postcode lottery.”

“Medical abortion by telehealth allows for some levelling of those variations – technology enables us to do this,” she explained.

The digital platform allows women to contact health professionals remotely via phone or online calls.

The service is available in all states except South Australia, where teleabortion remains outlawed.
