We must not forget all the medical and ethical difficulties that accompany abortion and, of course, chemical abortion.
At the present time, the states of Mississippi, Missouri, and South and North Dakota in the United States have only one abortion clinic per state, which of course makes it difficult to access this procedure. To facilitate access to abortion, telemedicine chemical abortion is being promoted in the United States. It would circumvent the need for women who decide to abort to visit an abortion clinic. Technically, it is chemical abortion by telemedicine using mifepristone and misoprostol within the first 10 weeks of pregnancy, a practice that can be carried out in the woman’s home. Nonetheless, this method has the disadvantage that when it fails (approximately 5% of the time), the woman must undergo a medical examination, which of course will have to be performed in a medical centre (JAMA 176; 585-586, 2016). Aside from these sociological and medical considerations, however, we must not forget all the medical and ethical difficulties that accompany abortion and, of course, chemical abortion.
