Use the regulatory support mechanisms available
If you see or receive messages that are hateful, abusive or putting women’s lives at risk by spreading false information about you and your organisation, or abortion care in general, it is advised to report these messages and posts to the social media platform. You also have the ability to remove or hide these messages from your own account. Do this after you have reported them.
Support each other
If you are receiving online abuse as a result of your advocacy, it is likely that you will not be the only one. Ask other SA/PAC advocates if they are experiencing the same, share your stories and try to support each other.
