The War For Life v Choice Isn’t Over
(TruthandLiberty.com) – After the Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v. Wade on Friday, June 24, many pundits and Democrats claimed the verdict would send women back to the Dark Ages before Roe. Others dispute that notion. Constitutional scholar and medical ethicist Katie Wilson countered the narrative by saying the pharmaceutical landscape is very different today than in 1973.
After the Supreme Court decision, Just the Pill received over 100 requests to speak with doctors by phone — nearly four times the daily number of requests the nonprofit receives on an average day. Just the pill helps connect women with doctors who can prescribe abortion pills.
“Abortion pills, already used in more than half of recent U.S. abortions, are becoming even more sought-after in the aftermath of Roe v. Wade being overturned, and will likely be at the center of the unfolding legal battles.”https://t.co/4o7T94yyLa

Over the last few years, abortion drugs accounted for over 50% of pregnancy terminations in the United States. Even before the Supreme Court ruling, more women sought out the prescription pill than traditional termination provider services. The FDA authorized the drug, which women must take within the first 10 weeks of pregnancy. The patient must take two pills within 24 to 48 hours, stopping the pregnancy process and causing an experience similar to a miscarriage.
The pill is much less expensive than a medical abortion, is far less invasive, and is much more private. The manufacturer says there’s an ample supply of the medication even if demand surges. Yet, some states have banned abortion medications, so potential users should check to ensure they’re not breaking any local laws before seeking the option.
