Abortion motorhomes to target women facing unplanned pregnancies

Since the overturning of ‘Roe v Wade’, 13 states have made abortion illegal, leading abortion supporters to capitalise on women seeking out-of-state abortions using mobile abortion clinics in adapted motorhomes.

According to the Guardian, some states that continue to permit abortion have seen an increase in women seeking abortion from neighbouring states in which abortion has been made illegal.

Abortion motorhomes

To capitalise on this increase in women seeking abortions out of state, Planned Parenthood is launching a travelling abortion clinic to meet women at the border of Illinois using an adapted motorhome (RV). The RV will travel to the borders of southeastern Missouri, western Kentucky and northeastern Tennessee.

According to Yamelsie Rodriguez, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region and Southwest Missouri, the travelling abortion clinic will have two exam rooms, a lab and a waiting room. It will provide medical abortions up until 11 weeks gestation, and is expected to be operational by the end of the year. The abortion giant expects to be performing surgical abortions a few months after.

The Associated Press asked about safety and security but Rodriguez would not discuss this.

Spokeswoman for the National Right to Life Committee, Laura Echevarria, said the mobile abortion clinics were “another grotesque demeaning of human life”.

A group called ‘Just the Pill’ has been operating mobile abortion clinics for a number of years in Colorado but are planning to expand their operation to Illinois next year.

Roe v Wade

The overturning of Roe v Wade permitted individual states to decide their own abortion legislation.

At the time of Roe v Wade’s overturning, nine states had pre-Roe restrictions on abortion that could potentially be enforced, and 13 states had what abortion advocates labelled as “trigger bans” in place, meaning that abortion restrictions would be in place now that Roe has been overturned.

A number of states have an explicit “right” to abortion at least up to some point in pregnancy.

Right To Life UK spokesperson Catherine Robinson said “It is sad to see these people use their entrepreneurial talents to ensure that more unborn babies are aborted, rather than put their time and energy into providing the practical support that is needed by so many women facing crisis pregnancies to ensure that they and their baby are supported and they feel they have the help they need during pregnancy and beyond. Again, we have abortion campaigners showing that they are only really pro one choice, and that is abortion”.

Dear reader,

You may be surprised to learn that our 24-week abortion time limit is out of line with the majority of European Union countries, where the most common time limit for abortion on demand or on broad social grounds is 12 weeks gestation.

The latest guidance from the British Association of Perinatal Medicine enables doctors to intervene to save premature babies from 22 weeks. The latest research indicates that a significant number of babies born at 22 weeks gestation can survive outside the womb, and this number increases with proactive perinatal care.

This leaves a real contradiction in British law. In one room of a hospital, doctors could be working to save a baby born alive at 23 weeks whilst, in another room of that same hospital, a doctor could perform an abortion that would end the life of a baby at the same age.

The majority of the British population support reducing the time limit. Polling has shown that 70% of British women favour a reduction in the time limit from 24 weeks to 20 weeks or below.
