Pro-Abortion Orgs Plan to Continue Distributing Pills Online Even if Roe v. Wade is Overturned

Pro-abortion organizations are preparing for the potential overturning of Roe v. Wade by creating more ways to order abortion pills online for mail order. These organizations plan to undercut state abortion laws by delivering pills regardless of whether a state outlaws abortion.

On its own, the overturning of Roe v. Wade would not make abortion illegal. It would simply allow states to make the determination regarding whether abortion will be allowed within their borders. If the Supreme Court chooses to overturn the landmark decision, however, pro-life states will likely pass laws outlawing abortion, including the distribution of abortion pills. Several pro-abortion organizations plan to thwart those regulations (as they did when the FDA banned the mail distribution of abortion pills) by making abortion pills available to order online.

A recent article by Politico highlighted several organizations preparing to keep abortion available in the circumstance that states outlaw abortion or online abortion pill distribution. The Mountain Access Brigade, Aid Access, the Yellowhammer Fund, and Plan C are just a few of these pro-abortion groups.

“If Roe goes down — we hope it won’t — there are always going to be ways to access abortion,” Plan C co-founder Elisa Wells told Politico. “Plan C included, we’re already working on alternative ways to access the pills.”
