    Can Abortion Be Safe Without Roe V. Wade?

    Can Abortion Be Safe Without Roe V. Wade?

    Now that The Supreme Court has overturned Roe V. Wade and states are criminalizing abortion and passing more restrictive abortion laws, millions of women have fewer choices and are left to navigate healthcare decisions without the support of a trusted doctor or clinics.






    • How can women in states that have criminalized abortion end a pregnancy safely? 


    • When is it safe to get an abortion using abortive drugs? 


    • How can women get medical advice remotely in states that have abortion bans?


    • When should a woman see a doctor about complications?


    • How do I minimize legal risk when discussing reproductive medicine with a healthcare provider?






     In this episode, Nurse Practitioner and wellness coach Jill Baker offers important advice for making reproductive health care choices in our post Roe v. Wade world. She discusses issues like Morning-After pills, abortive pills that induce a miscarriage, IUDs, and legal issues faced by both women and their healthcare providers. She also offers important guidance about when to seek medical attention should complications arise while using abortive drugs at home.
