Planned Parenthood unveils abortion ‘underground railroad’ for post-Roe America

October 11, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Fearful that it’s only a matter of time before the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade and allows Americans to vote directly on abortion, the Planned Parenthood Action Fund (PPAF) unveiled a new plan Wednesday to facilitate abortions across the United States.

The abortion lobby is still reeling from Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s narrow confirmation to the nation’s highest court last weekend. Donald Trump’s second Supreme Court pick replaces notorious liberal swing vote Anthony Kennedy, leading pro-lifers to hope the new conservative majority will finally be enough to overturn Roe.

How Kavanaugh, Neil Gorsuch, and John Roberts would rule on the question remains to be seen, but PPAF isn’t taking any chances. Nine states never repealed their unenforced, pre-Roe abortion bans, while another four have enacted bans that would immediately take effect upon Roe’s fall. The pro-abortion Center for Reproductive Rights (CRR) estimates that 22 states could ban abortion outright.

In response, PPAF’s so-called “Care for All” plan lays out a three-part contingency plan for a post-Roe USA. At Salon, pro-abortion activist Amanda Marcotte calls the plan an “underground railroad,” comparing the pro-abortion scheme to the 19th-century network that helped fugitive slaves escape to free states in the North.

The first part is to expand facilities in abortion-friendly states like California or Illinois so they can form a “Regional Access Network” that would financially assist women traveling to them from pro-life states. This network would also expand telemed abortions and “leverage technology and innovation to ensure patients, no matter what state they live in, can connect to resources and determine how and where they can access abortion.”

Pro-lifers argue that telemed or “webcam” abortions, in which a patient listens to a doctor on a video screen while abortion pills are dispensed, expose women to additional risks without proper medical supervision.
