You asked, Molly answered.
The fact that we have to post this deeply saddens me. Every woman should have access to basic medical care from her local doctor. But as it stands, not every woman does. And the right to reproductive healthcare is eroding more and more quickly.
I don’t necessarily endorse this post, and I would urge anyone considering using these methods to seek out safe, legal care from a trained professional. If abortion is illegal or highly limited where you live, seek it out in another state. Communities of women have come together to provide housing and transportation for women crossing state lines — the Haven Coalition in New York does this, and local clinics can let you know about similar programs in other states. Other programs exist to fund procedures for low-income women. As of now, there are still options. They aren’t always great options, and they’re especially challenging if you’re poor. But they aren’t universally insurmountable.
I don’t want to be unnecessarily alarmist, but things are starting to get bad. And so what Molly has posted could be potentially helpful to a lot of women, which is why I link to it. I can’t vouch for the accuracy of the post, or the safety of the procedures described therein. But I trust other feminist, pro-choice women. We will create communities, and we will help eachother, even if our government finds it acceptable to infringe on our most basic human rights to decide what does and doesn’t grow in our bodies. We did it before Roe, and we’ll do it after.
