Venezuela Safe Abortion Hotline Launched, May 2011


On May 18th, a safe abortion hotline was launched at the Nuevo Circo in Caracas, with acrobatics performances and a banner-hang off the building by feminist activists in Venezuela. The hotline offers scientific and reliable information about how women can safely use misoprostol to have an abortion in their own home, in order to prevent the harm and deaths that are caused by unsafe abortion. Within one hour of launching, the hotline had already received its first call. In Venezuela abortion is illegal except when the woman's life is in danger.
