An anarchist collective is sharing what it says are video instructions for do-it-yourself abortion pills following the revelation that the Supreme Court backs overturning Roe v. Wade.
A video by Four Vinegar Thieves Collective, a group that purports to teach people to “make your own medicine,” is instructing abortion seekers on how to make misoprostol and mifepristone, two of the most common drugs used to induce abortions. The video was first published by collective leader Mixael Laufer last year following the passage of a Texas law that banned most abortions after six weeks, according to Vice.
The Monday night Politico publication of Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito‘s leaked draft majority opinion, which would effectively eliminate federal abortion rights protections should it become final, prompted Laufer and others to repeatedly re-share the video on social media.
