Making abortion accessible…

by videoconference.

The NYT reports, that from their offices, “doctors ask a woman on the computer screen before him one final question: Are you ready to take your pill?” When the woman responds affirmatively, the doctor can, with a click of his mouse, open a modified cash drawer next to the nurse in the clinic where the woman sits, dispensing RU-486, the pill that will end her pregnancy.

One thought on “Making abortion accessible…

  1. this is an awesome idea, eh? not surprisingly, i’ve read there are court battles going on over it already. i think i recall that the problem is that the way the law is worded is that a doctor has to be “present” for the administering of ru-486 (so that they can get a clear shot at him/her, of course).
