For women who are considering terminating their pregnancies, a new chatbot called Charley aims to help them start the process of getting an abortion. Here's what some doctors think.
On its website, Charley is described as "designed by abortion experts, made for abortion seekers." People "were ending up in an endless Google loop." "Our research showed that people were turning primarily to Google for information about abortion options." "Compassionate and comprehensive care is essential, especially during something so personal as an abortion." "I would recommend thoroughly researching the side effects that an abortion can have on a woman’s body, and see a doctor after that decision to ensure that your mental state is being cared for." Melissa Rudy is health editor and a member of the lifestyle team at Fox News Digital.
One of its co-founders is Cecile Richards, former president of Planned Parenthood. Richards "oversees legal, political, and policy matters and leads fundraising efforts" for Charley, according to the chatbot’s website.
