Abortion Robot in Mexico 2021

rAborta, the Abortion Robot has come to Mexico! On September 28th, International Safe Abortion Day, telemedicine abortion care and information service, Women on Web, joined local groups in a demonstration in Mexico City for the abortion robot campaign, rAborta

Mexico’s Supreme Court unanimously deemed the punishment of abortion unconstitutional, coming into effect immediately in the state of Coahuila and effectively paving the road for legalization throughout the country. Abortion was illegal up until this point in most parts of the country except in cases of rape and in some areas, if a woman’s life was threatened.

For women living outside of the four Mexican states that have legalized abortion care, accessing safe abortion is difficult and requires support and accompaniment from other networks. The abortion robot symbolizes women’s reliance on technology to meet their rights. The robot is operated in Mexico City where abortion is legal and delivers abortion pills to the women in 11 states that have yet to legalize abortion care.
