Years back there was a rumbling on the Internet in regards to states passing draconian abortion laws. People were organizing, in the background and out of the public eye, a network to help women travel to a different state to get an abortion when their state closed so many clinics few could use them, or a new state law prohibited that needed medical care.
More recently I’ve heard tell of women getting the morning after pill even without needing it to stockpile for others who run into the “that’s against my beliefs” pharmacist. I’m sure there are many more ways we’re supporting each other. I’d love to hear them.
We need to find our trained herbalists and push for classes on safe herbal abortifacients and plants that mimic sex hormones. We need classes on abortion after-care from the midwives. We need to use all of our resources and collectively care for each other.
These actions are the resistance.
Let’s brainstorm, collaborate on informational Google docs, talk via Signal or Whatsapp. Is IRC still a thing? Is it private? Let’s start now and have a discreet underground infrastructure in place before we need it.
