Thousands of Abortion Pills Reach Ban States Every Month

( – On June 24, 2022, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) officially (after somebody infamously had leaked a preliminary version to POLITICO) issued their decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization and returned the power to regulate abortion to the individual states. Since the Liberals in Congress and around the country had already lost their minds over the court stripping women of what they think is a “constitutional right” to make this decision, no one should be surprised as to what length they will go to subvert it.

The Leftist misinformation/disinformation machine was in hyperdrive telling their rabid faithful voting base that the horrible Conservative majority terminated their beloved 1973 SCOTUS decision in Roe v. Wade due to partisan politics. Something along those lines may have happened in the aftermath of the ruling, but the shenanigans seem to be coming from President Joe Biden’s administration along with pro-abortion advocates.

End Run Around the Law

A recent report by the Society of Family Planning (SFP) (an ironic name considering that the “plan” involves killing unborn children) shows that women in states where there are laws restricting abortions are still getting them done. Forgoing an actual examination, they are using telemedicine to talk to a doctor or nurse practitioner who then provides a prescription for mifepristone and misoprostol, which are then filled and shipped by a mail-order pharmacy.

One could almost hear the glee in the voice of whoever wrote the SFP press release when they wrote “that nearly 8,000 [women] per month in states with bans for severe restrictions” managed to circumvent the power granted to the states by SCOTUS. However, it might be advisable to take their research with a large grain of salt considering that they have ignored vital information in two different studies, according to their profile on the Influence Watch website.

In 2019, SFP wanted to disprove the theory that abortions were linked to suicides amongst the women who had just undergone the procedure but they only counted attempted suicide, not successful ones, and completely left out girls under the age of 18. They also were part of research to determine if implanting an intrauterine contraceptive device (IUD) immediately after giving birth would increase usage even though the manufacturer said it was contraindicated until four weeks afterward.

The United States Department of Justice (DOJ) issued a slip opinion on December 23, 2022, that used some very convoluted logic and verbal gymnastics to give a veneer of legitimacy to the practices. In response to a question from the United States Postal Service (USPS) on whether or not the Comstock Act of 1873 would prevent them from accepting and delivering these packages of medications.

The Comstock Act specifically forbids the USPS from delivering “every article or thing designed, adapted, or intended for producing abortion,” and it is still the law of the land. However, somehow the DOJ concluded that this does not preclude mifepristone or misoprostol from being mailed when “the sender lacks the intent that the recipient of the drugs will give them unlawfully.”

Put another way, the pseudo-logic the DOJ applied is that a licensed pharmacist — whose job it is to know exactly what the drugs do — filled a prescription sent to them by a family planning doctor/practitioner and mailed it to a Red State, somehow failed to understand that the patient intended to end her pregnancy. And then the Democrats wonder why so many Conservative pundits regularly label them a bunch of hypocrites who see Americans as gullible fools.
