This week a drone will airdrop medical abortion pills to Polish women unable to legally terminate pregnancies. Radhika Sanghani reports
A drone carrying medical abortion pills is set to fly to Poland, where abortion is severely restricted for women.
The ‘abortion drone’ is being sent by not-for-profit organisation Women on Waves – which provides medical abortion pills around the world – in a bid to help Polish women terminate their pregnancies safely. Normally the company sends the pills by post, after women have placed their orders online, but this is the first time it has used the unorthodox method of delivery by drone.
