A mobile clinic will enable abortion in the EU to women who live near the borders of several republican states

The conservative offensive against abortion in the United States is causing a response in defense of this right not only in the political and legal sphere of the most progressive states, but also through the actions of social groups. The association Planned Parenthood (in English, Familiar Planning) and set in motion before the end of the year a mobile abortion unit that will move to the border of the states that have legislated against this right. Será la primera unita de este tipo que exista en United States.

Planned Parenthood will offer this service in the south of the Democratic State Illinoisque hace frontera, entre otros territorios, con Wisconsin, Missouri and Kentucky, zones that have approved legislations ultrarestrictives sobre el abortion. De este modo, las mujeres que habiten en ellas solo têran que cruzar la frontera hacia Illinois para ser atendidas. Arkansas and Tennessee are also not far from southern Illinois, so their women can also benefit from their presence mobile clinic.

The association justified its launch on this date: in the 100 days since the Supreme Court ruling, the health center of Planned Parenthood in the locality of Fairview Heights, about 32 kilometers from the border between Illinois and Missouri, “has experienced flour aumento del 30% en cuanto a las visitas de mujeres para abortararwaiting times for abortion appointments went from four days to two weeks and media, and patients coming from outside of that bistate area between Missouri and Illinois increased by more than 340%”, assured the president, Yamelsie Rodríguez, en el acto de presentation de la unita móvil el pasado 3 de octubre.

“Este incremento ha sido tan rápido y pronunciado que ha sorpendido hasta a la propia organización ya esto nos referimos cuando decimo que eliminar el aborto no va a eliminar la necessidad de un aborto”, he added.

Mobile installation it will include a small waiting room, a laboratory and two exam rooms. En un primer momento, it will offer abortions with medications up to 11 weeks of gestation, and in the second phase, it will offer surgical abortions, probably from the next year, according to the association.

Anti-abortion legislation is in force in 15 states

Tras la sentencia de June del Tribunal Supremo en la que se derogó este derogó en el amíto federal (a derecho that the own court had established in 1973 in a fall on the question), 15 estados del país have rushed to approve regulations to restrict o vetar en la práctica el acceso al abortion.

En enfoque general en esos estados ha sido el de prohibir ese derecho y sólo despenalizarlo si a posteriori los profesionales sanitarios demuresan que el abortion practicado era necesario para salvar la vida de la mujer o que ésta había sido violada o víctima de un incesto.

Estas leyes han dividido al país en dos entre los estados donde esta practica es legal y los que no. Esto ha convertido a Illinois en un estado refugio para el abortion puesto que está surroundedo o se encuentra cerca de varios estados con antiaborto legislations.

“We are in the gap created by politicians and we guarantee that all people can access the health care they deserve, regardless of where they live,” Rodríguez assures.

Planned Parenthood assures that don’t rule out expanding the number of mobile units in the future, aunque eso dependerá del eschizo de esta primera. En la extensión de esta strategy baraja collaborar con otros collectives. In fact, another organization, Just the Pill (Sólo la píldora), has also announced its intention to offer abortion services with medicines in mobile clinics to patients in the states located in the Midwest of the United States, precisely in the area where it will be located. Planned Parenthood mobile clinic.

“We are trying to work together to face the exponential increase in the number of patients who travel from prohibited states to what we call refuge states to receive attention to abortion,” assured Yamelsie Rodríguez last week in an interview this week with public radio NPR . “En un momento así todos tenemos que ponernos manos a la worka”, he added.
