Why should you be within 60 minutes of a hospital or urgent care center when you do the abortion?

It is absolutely necessary to be within one hour of help, in case you lose too much blood. This is also the case when a woman has a miscarriage or gives birth. It is not necessary for you to live in an urban area to do a medical abortion. Almost all areas with internet access will also have a basic first aid center nearby.

Hospitals and urgent care centers must have basic medical equipment and staff. This equipment and expertise is the same that is required to care for women who have complications related to miscarriage or birth.
