Abortion resistance braces for demands of a post-Roe future

When desperate people can’t obtain abortions near home — when they need plane tickets, bus fare, babysitters — they reach out to groups like  the Midwest Access Coalition. The demand has become staggering. And is expected to grow exponentially if the U.S., Supreme Court guts Roe v. Wade. Already, state after state has tightened restrictions, pushing pregnant people further from home, for some hundreds of miles away.  Helpless to prevent the coming crisis, the groups’ goal is to assist abortion seekers one by one, either legally by helping them travel, or illegally if that’s what it eventually comes down to.
