Abortion Policy Scan for Advocacy (Multiple Languages)

This tool is intended to help organizations assess the official policies and laws governing abortion care as compared with the actual situation, and identify challenges to and opportunities for improving access to safe abortion through policy change. A team can use this tool as an interview guide with key informants and a research guide when studying relevant documents. After assessing the policy and on-the-ground contexts for abortion and identifying opportunities for advocacy using this tool, users should turn to the Straight to the Point Advocacy package to plan a specific advocacy initiative.
