Women from a wide range of feminist organizations came to a training on medical abortion in Santiago. Sara from the Coordinadora Juvenil de Género (CPJ) talked about her experiences with the safe abortion hotline launched in Chile almost a year ago, and Susan talked about Women on Waves, and gave a training on the effective use of Misoprostol. Afterwards, there were many questions and much enthusiasm for a hotline project here in Chile that would give women access to this vital information, while at the same time pushing for the opening of debate on abortion from a more empowered perspective.
