Anti-Abortion advocates are now turning their focus to banning abortion pills….
(Would Birth Control pills be next and condoms after that?)
The Biden admin has just moved to make abortion pills more available…
Alabama is thinking about charging woman with a crime for obtaining them….
The recent Midterm Election reinforces the fact that MOST Americans WANT available abortion access….
And even some Republicans in Congress are against their party embracing effort’s to restrict access to the procedure….
“One week after the federal government made it easier to get abortion pills, Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall said Tuesday that women in Alabama who use those pills to end pregnancies could be prosecuted,” AL.com reports.
“That’s despite wording in Alabama’s new Human Life Protection Act that criminalizes abortion providers and prevents its use against the people receiving abortions. Instead, the attorney general’s office said Alabama could rely on an older law, one initially designed to protect children from meth lab fumes.”
Demo’s against increased access to abortion pill’s given by the Biden admin recently…….
Anti-abortion advocates are organizing pickets outside CVS and Walgreens in early February in at least eight cities, including Washington, D.C., in response to the companies’ plans to take advantage of the Food and Drug Administration’s decision last week allowing retail pharmacies to stock and dispense abortion pills in states where they’re legal.
“We want people to be uncomfortable going into a CVS that has a demonstration going on and to consider going to a different pharmacy,” said Caroline Smith, a leader of the group Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising. “We also want to put enough pressure on the companies to retract this decision and not get certified to sell abortion pills.”
A Walgreens spokesperson declined to comment on the protests. CVS did not respond to a request for comment.
The anti-abortion movement is zeroing in on pharmacies as the pills have become the most popular method for terminating a pregnancy in the U.S. and a key way people are accessing abortion in states where it’s banned.
The upcoming protests are just one piece of a broader strategy that, if successful, could further fray the national patchwork of access to abortion….

As House Republicans are set to consider a number of bills that would limit abortion access, GOP Rep. Nancy Mace (S.C.) says her party is “tone-deaf” on the issue, blasting their approach.
“We have been tone-deaf on this issue since the time that Roe was overturned,” Mace told reporters Tuesday, according to NBC. “We buried our heads in the sand … We didn’t have any policy alternatives.”
In their new majority, Republicans have agreed to give quick consideration to two bills that would place restrictions on abortion — one that would codify the Hyde Amendmentbanning the use of federal funding for the procedure and another that aims to regulate how health care providers handle infants born alive after an abortion attempt….
“It’s never going to pass the Senate. It’s never going to get to the president’s desk to be signed into law,” she said. “If you want to make a difference and reduce the number of abortions with a Democrat-controlled Senate, the No. 1 issue we should be working on is access to birth control.”….
