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

Ill say this there are some major risks involved with this medication. Any woman who is considering it use should be under a doctors care in case they need to take you to a hospital for treatment. For one you need to make sure its not an ectopic pregnancy not to mention can cause severe bleeding so anyone with anaemia needs to avoid it. It can also cause heart attacks in patients with heart disease. So a physical is a must to make sure you remain safe.
I, as a woman, want 100% the right of choice and access to this pill.

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.
That’s where the SIA Legal Team comes in. The team consists of a group of eight staffers with expertise in the legal realm of self-induced abortion. On Tuesday, the group launched a hotline people can call for legal assistance if they are facing arrest or prosecution related to the termination of a pregnancy outside a clinical setting.
In fact, the SIA team has identified more than 40 different types of laws that have been or could be used to prosecute women and anyone who helps them self-manage an abortion. While just seven states explicitly outlaw self-induced abortion, others rely on laws against “abusing a corpse,” practicing medicine without a license, and possession of a controlled substance. These laws were not written with abortion in mind, but prosecutors have been testing them. In 2014, a mother was sentenced to up to 18 months behind bars because she procured abortion-inducing drugs for her daughter, a minor who wanted to end her pregnancy.
