Administering abortion from abroad in Post-Roe America

When Roe v. Wade was overturned in June, Dr. Rebecca Gomperts, a Dutch physician who has made a reputation for providing abortion services overseas in countries that restrict reproductive rights, saw a huge increase in emails from the U.S. Medication abortions done at home involve patients taking a regimen of two drugs — mifepristone and misoprostol — which are approved by the FDA to end pregnancy up to ten weeks. Before Roe v. Wade was overturned, Aid Access would receive around 400 emails per day from the U.S. On June 24 — the day the landmark ruling was struck down in the Supreme Court — they received 4,000 emails, a record for the organization, and now comfortably see 1,000 emails per day, two and a half times more interest than before the draft leak, Gomperts said.
