‘Protest Drones’ Will Deliver Abortion Pills to a Restrictive Poland
Women on Waves is organizing the pill drop in protest of restrictive Polish abortion laws
Women on Waves, a Dutch pro-choice group, will be using drones to drop packages of abortion pills in a Polish town on Saturday to protest restrictive abortion laws in Poland.
Rebecca Gomperts, the organization’s founder and director, says that the drop is the latest way Women on Waves is seeking to use technology to push for an advance in women’s rights. She tells PSFK:
The abortion drone is a new strategy using new technology to deliver medical abortions to women in need, and at the same time to visualize the different realities of access to abortion in the European countries and the ongoing violation of women’s rights even in Europe.
