If doctors can't dispense abortion pills, and it becomes illegal to send them by mail ...

The only option left will be to purchase them at gun shows.

No license, no background check, no imposition on freedoms. Just a potentially lethal weapon purchased from a total stranger, perfectly within the law and right-wing "principles".

Women not so much.

3. And why aren't physicians mad as hell?

Given that a great percentage of them are likely to become criminals for doing their jobs.

Do they think that HIPAA will "save them"? Good luck with that, especially when they are charged RETROACTIVELY.

Asking for a friend.

4. Exactly!

Then again, it will be next to impossible to stop them coming in from states where such meds are perfectly legal OTC. Ironically, the states most likely to ban abortion pills are the source of illegal firearms in states where abortion pills will remain legal.

5. No need to worry!

These drugged out red States can't stop the opioids and fentanyl that are coming in their states period!!. So how in the h*** are they gonna stop birth control pills..

So I am not worried about distribution. We just need to support the women in these Handmaiden states to get a supply distribution going.

24. Yep.

And remember, they can't find us all. Or arrest us all. Or throw the book at us all.

We will be like weeds. You can pull 'em up all day, but you sure won't get rid of 'em.

And let us be like ants. They will find their way in, no matter what you do. And no matter what you do, they are EVERYWHERE.


Just a couple of suggestions to help with the ideas and the visualization.

service.

14. Just think of all the people the religious pro-forced birth can jail

And torment over retroactive laws. It will be a field day for jailing, fining, prosecuting and litigating against all those women that had abortions through the years.

17. Prescribe the medication abortion pills for off-label use.

Prescribe the medication abortion pills for off-label use.

I recommend prescribing it for COVID.

The right wing would have no legitimate complaint considering all the other cures and treatments they offer for COVID.

Be sure to mention warnings about side effects.

21. It doesn't work quite the way you think it does.

No license, no background check, no imposition on freedoms. Just a potentially lethal weapon purchased from a total stranger, perfectly within the law and right-wing "principles".

It depends on the state. For example, anybody selling a NY-illegal gun at a NY gun show will be arrested on the spot. Police monitor these shows for exactly that, as well as for illicit sales in the parking lot -- NY is a universal-background-check state. You can bet that the anti-abortion states will codify similar regulations.

32. You need a passport to reenter the US, so this won't help most teen girls.

Going to Mexico is an option for any adult woman with a passport, and there are long waits, weeks or months, to get one.

Women in border states where abortion is banned should apply for passports now, in case this option is needed.
