    Default Mail-order abortion pill sales are surging in red states

    Several Republican lawmakers have made attempts to prohibit the abortion pills from being shipped or prescribed, however, some people are finding ways around that by ordering the pills online "from overseas pharmacies that can't be reached by U.S. laws," the Post reports. It's a five-day dosage of tablets that typically comes in an "unassuming envelope," which makes it hard to patrol. These nondescript shipments "will probably become another front in the battle over abortion rights," says the Post.

    "Mailed pills are hard to police," Temple Law School's Rachel Rebouche said, but "[t]hat has not stopped [states] from trying." Experts believe more people will turn to those online sources if abortion rights are overturned.

    In 2000 the Food and Drug Administration approved mifepristone, taken along with misoprostol, to induce what is essentially a miscarriage, explains the Post. It's approved as safe and effective for use up to 10 weeks of pregnancy.

    Advocates say residents of Texas and several other states with strict policies on abortions "have already helped fuel the boom in medication abortions, as patients seek alternatives to surgical abortions at a clinic."

    Now state borders are real open borders, much like most of the internal EU borders. There is no one going through bags when you cross from Maryland to Virginia.

    Perhaps this will work out well for red states. Move the irrational lefties to Portland.

    Interesting cause there exists now way that those Red States can stop it, kinda like guns, buy it elsewhere and just transport or ship it across State lines, in a way, it makes the whole abortion arguement inane

    A logical outcome. The theocratic authoritarian states will still attempt to block this such as monitoring overseas mail.

    Delaware is the corporation capital of the US due to it’s laws. It’s not unforeseen that people can have a PO Box in one state for receiving overseas goods then have all mail boxed and mailed from one state to the recipient….in a plain brown wrapper.

    All nice and legal until the theocratic authoritarians start snooping in everyone’s mail on the pretense to “catch abortionists”.

    Fascism has arrived and we can only blame ourselves. We get the government we deserve.

    The answer is going to be very early detection, coupled with these drugs.
    Right now, most women don't know they're pregnant until about 5 or 6 weeks in many cases. That means they'll have to act immediately.

    The problems will be in cases of fetal distress, or an at risk mother later in the term of an otherwise normal attempt to have a baby.

    They can't stop it that way. Anyone can have it mailed to a friend/relative in a Blue state. We're going to see criminal prosecutions for anyone who ends up in the hospital during a miscarriage if these drugs are found in their blood.

    Not a fucking lawyer, but wouldn’t they have to prove the pills were taken in a state subjugating women and banning abortion? All the woman would have to do is show a bus ticket or other evidence they were out of state at the time. Sure, the oppressors would still prosecute but the appeals would reach likely overturn the initial verdict.

    Not every state or court would be packed with tyrants.

    But, isn't the radical Left and their pro-abortion buddies claiming this ruling will end abortion altogether?

    Not quite, but did you notice that Amazon will now pay up to $4,000 in travel expenses for employees traveling for abortions? That number is so high that I assume that it includes a companion.
