In the latest Our Bodies, Our Blog, learn about the work of Women on Waves, an organization working to increase access to safe abortions for women in countries with restrictive abortion policies.

Women on Waves offers hotlines for information, details on obtaining medical abortions via the web, and information on each nation’s abortion laws and misoprostol (a medication that induces abortion) brand names and availability. The organization also runs ship campaigns, in which women who can’t get abortions in their countries ride out to international waters for medication abortions.
