Aid Access is a global service to provide information and prescriptions to women in need of a safe abortion. Aid Access started operating in March 2018 and received almost 40000 help requests from people in the United States. People requesting help are given information about available local services and funding possibilities, but many report being unable to access abortion services in their local communities. If they experience an undue burden to access local care, Dr. Gomperts provides a prescription for the required medicines which those seeking an abortion can have filled. Many of the people requesting help are young, raped, poor or living in situations of domestic violence.
