The FDA recently announced a policy change due to COVID-19 that allows women using telemedicine to order the abortion pill online and have it delivered through the mail instead of requiring an in-person visit to a doctor’s office or clinic. This policy change is so dangerous to women’s health, as more women are taking the abortion pill without any supervision or understanding of the risks.
Women are in their most vulnerable state when experiencing an unplanned pregnancy. How do you reach them before abortion pill providers do?

Create content that warns women of the detrimental effect of abortion pills and purchasing the abortion pill online. Women deserve real and honest information.

This is the perfect opportunity for us to reach her before she takes the abortion pill and educate her about the risks of abortion and ordering these pills online. Not only that, but we can encourage her where she is at and give her the support and confidential care she needs to make a confident decision.

SEO, search engine optimization is the key to ranking on top of Google and effectively reaching the abortion-minded woman before your competitors.

By knowing what these top keywords are, you can optimize your content to meet women where they are and rank high on top search engines. Things to incorporate SEO into are:
