    Self-Managed Abortion & COVID (Francine Coeytaux)

    Self-Managed Abortion & COVID (Francine Coeytaux)

    Francine Coeytaux is a GIANT in the field of reproductive health- there's no easier way to say that. Among other things, she's the Co-Creator and Co-Director of Plan C--an organization of veteran reproductive health advocates, researchers, and modern age digital strategists who are all working towards the common goal of making medication abortion available to the people who need it most.
    Now more than ever, amidst a global pandemic, HERE is a plan to curtail limited access to Plan A (birth control), Plan B (emergency contraception), and in-office abortion care. As millions of women all over the world have shown through countless studies, self-managed abortion with the relatively newer technology of abortion medications, is incredibly safe and effective.

I RECOMMEND THIS PODCAST TO EVERYONE I KNOW!!!

Literally. With every new episode I listen to I recommend the podcast to someone else. I’ve learned so much even just from the news segment at the beginning of some. I appreciate them trying to use gender inclusive language as much as possible and would love to hear “reproductive health” more instead of just “women’s health,” but overall I’m a HUGE fan!!

Way To Political

I started listening to this podcast because I LOVE women’s health. But as I listened each episode seems to be almost as much political as it is health related. While I believe to each their own, this is not the show for me. So that said, users beware 😊

So I accidentally found this podcast then later found out it was my Obgyn talking! Dr. Jenn!! I love this podcast because they keep it real and up front about all the information and this is exactly how she is as a doctor and I love it! Great listen 👍🏼
