Op-Ed by Daniel Grossman: The New Face of Self-Induced Abortion
Op-ed by Daniel Grossman in Houston Chronicle.

An op-ed by TxPEP investigator Daniel Grossman has been featured in the Houston Chronicle.The article discusses the use of the medication misoprostol to self-induce abortion. Grossman writes, "It’s rare that women use coat hangers. Now women are more likely to use misoprostol, a very safe and effective medication to end an early pregnancy without additional intervention." The op-ed, however, goes on to discuss potential complications when using the medication outside of a clinic setting.
