Faith Women's Clinic commitment We will do all we can to reduce the harm caused by unsafe abortion. We do it by increasing access to safe abortion services at abortion clinic, wherever it is legal for us to do so; and by giving women access to the contraception that should reduce the need for them to resort to an unsafe abortion in the first place. Our aim is that, by 2020, 90% of all women accessing safe abortion with abortion pills and post-abortion care through our centres receive a modern method of contraception from us as well.

Most of the safe abortion services we provide are medical abortion and medical post-abortion care services. Expanding access to medical abortion, in recent years, has been and continues to be, one of the most important tools in combating the harm of unsafe abortion.
How we're addressing it We work in countries all over the world to provide access to safe abortion and post-abortion care for women and girls who have decided to end a pregnancy. We’re working hard to eradicate unsafe abortion, and to make safe procedures as accessible and convenient in as many locations as possible. Alongside that, we provide post-abortion care, to make sure immediate life-saving medical care is available to women suffering complications from unsafe terminations. And we are committed to offering safe abortions in all the countries where we’re legally able to do so. We advocate for safe abortion because we know it saves women’s lives. So we're helping to shape abortion policy in several countries we operate in. Our policy work

At a wider level, we know that increasing access to safe abortion also improves the health of families, enhances education rates and boosts people’s economic prospects. So, while our services are saving and transforming lives in a very personal sense, they’re also making a difference at a community and society level.
The disadvantage of medical abortion is that it takes from several hours to several days for the abortion to be complete. Most of the bleeding with medical abortion is within the first 1-2 days, but it may continue for some days or even a couple weeks after that. The misoprostol causes cramping as it makes the uterus contract, and it can also cause nausea and vomiting.
Medical abortion Medical abortion is where a woman takes tablets to end her pregnancy. It’s a safe, non-invasive alternative to surgical abortion, which we can offer to women outside of a healthcare environment. It’s a way for us to open up abortions to women in different locations, and it means women have more control over when and where their treatment takes place. Most of the safe abortion services we provide are medical abortion and medical post-abortion care services. Expanding access to medical abortion, in recent years, has been and continues to be, one of the most important tools in combating the harm of unsafe abortion.
But like any medical procedure, there are some risks. The chances of problems gets higher the later you get the abortion, and if you have sedation or general anesthesia.
Reaching women wherever they are We don’t want location to get in the way of women accessing the care and information they need. So, in recent years, we have expanded access to safe abortion, and made sure more women can access our services in places and ways that best meet their needs.
