So many US states have been trying to ban and/or limit a doctor's ability to administer chemical abortion, aka abortion pills that utilize misoprostol and mifepristone to facilitate abortion, by requiring clinics to comply with hospital like architectural standards and/or requiring doctors to have admitting privileges to nearby hospital, for the safety of the woman and just in case! For example: www.arkansasonline.com...

But now the whole argument may be moot, as back ally abortions get fancied up with, and women face a new looming problem, unsupervised, self administered abortions.


A group that has long provided medication to help women induce abortions at home in countries where abortion is outlawed is now shipping to the U.S.


International 'safe abortions by mail' service can now ship to women in US thehill.com...


According to the outlet, the service will screen women to determine whether they can take the pills. Gomperts, a Dutch physician, will fill the prescriptions herself and send them through an Indian pharmacy directly to customers’ homes in the U.S. She also noted that the service will try to help women cover the cost of shipping if they cannot afford the service, which is $95.



What could go wrong, ATS? What could go wrong?

People might actually start making responsible decisions and aborting their little monsters instead of unleashing their awful genes on an unsuspecting world. Oh, the horror!

Less unwanted children.

Less babies having babies.

Less broken f-ed up families on welfare.

More choice and empowerment given to women and their bodies.

Why is it a responsible thing to do, to eliminate a doctor's oversight?

Women will find a way.
Never made much sense to me to make it harder so they would take a riskier way out.

I imagine flushing the toilet might be problematic with a foetus in there.

Isn't this riskier to a woman's health than going through a clinic, like say Planned Parenthood?

Yes, I would think so.

Ask how many college girls have popped a day after pill and then ask them if that had any worse effects than amphetamines and hard liquor.

At a month that would be the size of a grain of rice. The second month about 1 " you would not even see this clump of cells.

One of my best Freind, Mother had been raped through her childhood by dear old Dad. She gave birth to a handicapped son who was given away by Dad and died just after my Friend found and met him when he was a young man. He had lived in lonely abuse until his death.

I'm in no way against abortion, I honestly dont care what women choose.
But women were given choice and empowerment over their bodies a long time ago and it seems that birth control still seems allusive to many.

Plan B, or "The Day After Pill" isn't an abortion pill. It prevents fertilization and inhibits implantation. It's not the same as a 1st trimester chemical abortion. Hopefully ithe patient is actually is correct and truthful about the date of her last period with the "mail order" doctor, and actually takes the pill during her first trimester, and doesn't hesitate and take it too late. Hopefully, the patient isn't someone's 16 year old, using her aunt's ID and Dad's PayPal account to pay for a secret "do it yourself" abortion, that goes horrible wrong.

Planned Parenthood is going to hate this, this is going to take a lot of money from their pocket

at home abortions are going to defund PP, it's that ironic, don't you think

I bet it's right next to the Viagra ads.

Then the same pharmacy can fill both.

I always thought that they should be called un-planned parenthood.
It's more accurate

It is correct to say that women will find a way.

Even if Roe Vs. Wade is overturned - that is not going to stop women from trying to end their pregnancy.

Can you imagine back alley abortions starting again? It will. If Roe Vs. Wade is overturned.

Women have been ending pregnacies since the beginning of time.

It's their bodies. And their decision.
