Activist and gynaecologist Isabel Stabile wanted to show the public how safe and effective medical abortion pills are – and she did so by swallowing one during last Sunday’s pro-choice rally.
Stabile explained the process of her ordering the pills online through Women on Web, and how safe the pills are for anyone making use of them. To elucidate the rest of the process, she was handed a bottle of water and went on to swallow the pill to the clapping and cheering of the crowd.
Stabile has been very vocal about the right to abortion and the need for Malta to remove the blanket ban which makes it the only EU country to have such a law in place.

Her activism even landed her in unfortunate situations when in May of this year she was assaulted by a driver as she protested for the cause.
