We just needed to find a ship near Ecuador. We did and since a few weeks Women on Waves is the proud owner of its own "ship"!
After all, in order to be able to sail to international waters to allow women to swallow the abortion pill, one does not need a huge ship with a hospital on board. There is no risk at all that a medical problem associated with the medication can happen at high sees. A medical abortion is like a miscarriage (20% of the pregnancies spontaneously end in a miscariage). The miscarriage (like a menstruation) takes place only hours after the second part of the medical abortion (the use of misoprostol).
