Post Roe SASS Workshop
August 24 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Now that Roe has been overturned, helping people access the abortion care they need will require new and creative approaches. To learn how to legally spread information about self-managed abortion, at our next chapter Zoom meeting we will host a Self-Managed Abortion: Safe & Supported (SASS) Workshop. This workshop will be held on Wednesday, August 24, at 7 p.m. Central Time.
The information shared at this meeting was originally presented in a seminar at the National NOW Conference last month. Cindy Wolfe Boynton, who is the president of Connecticut NOW and a National NOW board member from the Northern District, will lead this Zoom workshop.
The goal of the workshop is to provide information regarding medical abortion, as opposed to giving advice or encouraging people to perform an illegal act. By providing information only, presenters are protected from being prosecuted for inciting, participating in or being an accessory to a crime.
While in many states in the U.S. it is not legal for a person to do their own abortion without a physician, it is NOT a crime to share information that is posted on the World Health Organization (WHO) website and other websites. Please help us build community among people interested in self-managed, safe and supported abortion (including abortion pills), and learn critical information that you can share with others.
