Early Options® was founded by Harvard-trained physician, Dr. Joan Fleischman, to provide women with natural, safe abortion options. That’s why we offer the Abortion Pill, and the SofTouch® method – designed specifically for ending an early pregnancy.
But it’s not just our team of physicians who recommend gentler, safe abortion methods for ending an early pregnancy. The World Health Organization (WHO) endorses manual aspiration abortion and the Abortion Pill as the safest abortion methods. The WHO has stated in its Technical Guidelines on Safe Abortion: “Aspiration and medical abortion are preferred methods for abortion in the first trimester. Both these methods are safe, effective, and suitable for the primary level of care and should be available at levels of care with greater capacity and in many private clinical settings."
