Self-Managed Abortion in the United States is an online information network co-launched by Ipas and Plan C. This network provides a platform for sharing news, resources, and discussions about abortion done outside of a conventional medical setting, including self-use of abortion pills. Plan C has developed relationships with many stakeholders through their work on the issue in the United States. Ipas has longstanding experience working in the developing world on abortion access that can be useful to apply to the U.S. context. Both organizations share the commitment to trusting individuals and to meeting their reproductive health needs—in the way that they determine is best for them.

The audience for this effort is advocates, researchers, communications specialists, and others working in this field. The audience is not women who wish to end a pregnancy and, therefore, no medical advice will be provided. The ultimate purpose is to share knowledge, questions and resources so we can more easily learn from each other.
