‘Vaginal Preppers’ Readying for Post-Roe Abortion Apocalypse!

In the wake of the SCOTUS leak, so-called “vaginal preppers” are getting ready for a post-Roe world where abortions may be banned in their entirety by stocking up on “morning-after pills” and other “abortion supplies.”

“It feels like you’re in a bad dream, and you’re trying to tell everybody else about it,” Kate Kelly, a human rights attorney based on the East Coast, told the Business Insider about the leak. “What was limited to a certain community is now everyone’s nightmare. That feels terrifying but also less lonely.”

Like survivalists preparing for the apocalypse, “vaginal preppers” have been gearing up for the criminalization of abortion. The term, used to describe community providers stocking up on abortion supplies, was coined by an anonymous abortion activist who recently spoke to The Atlantic about the phenomenon.

Individuals can reserve medication abortion pills for themselves online or at a local clinic, but advocates told Insider that hoarding them is a bad idea for two reasons — it limits supplies for those who need them, and the pills may expire before use.

The “Plan B” pill is a generally regarded as a safe method to terminate a pregnancy, according to a 2018 report by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine that found that the process presents a very low risk of complications for those who take the so-called “morning-after pill.”

Abortion medication makes up over 50% of all US abortions and became widely available in the US in the year 2000, according to The Guttmacher Institute, an organization dedicated to reproductive health policy.

In the days following a leaked draft opinion that suggested that the landmark decision might be overturned, abortion pill sales have increased as people gear up for restrictions on the procedure.

Since the SCOTUS draft was leaked on May 2, telehealth abortion clinic Choix saw a 300% increase in interest in abortion pills, says the Insider. Similarly, requests for the abortion pill have tripled at Aid Access, a nonprofit organization that mails the pills to patients who aren’t able to obtain them locally, according to Reuters. Aid Access provides “advanced provision pills,” which allow individuals to order them without being pregnant.

Throughout 2021, the organization processed a total of 10,000 requests, but between May 3 and May 10, the week following the draft leak, they’d already processed 1,614 requests, Aid Access told Insider. Aid Access also said they saw a 2,800% increase in website traffic from May 2 to May 3.

The “vaginal preppers” are stocking up on the pills not only for potential use on themselves but to be able to create “safe havens” warehousing the pills and making them available so desperate women in a post-Roe world will not have to resort to the brutal “wire hanger” back-alley abortions of decades ago.

However, several sources told the Insider that stockpiling abortion medication is probably not a very good nor practical idea.

The abortion pills that are currently available all have limited shelf lives. Misoprostol for two years and mifepristone for up to five. Plan B, which also has a weight limit of 155 pounds, has a shelf life of four years.

Also, hoarding supplies, especially through local purchases, creates a “contraception desert, preventing people who need it who might not have the resources to buy it elsewhere from accessing that care,” said Steph Black, writer, and abortion activist.

“I think in a perfect world, everyone should have them in their cabinet,” Brenna McCaffrey, professor in the Anthropology department at Fordham University, told Insider.

However, she qualifies her comment by saying stockpiling on products like abortion pills “can be really dangerous, especially for people who are just reacting to the news, because there are still people in Texas, for example, right now who are already living under this future that people in other states are imagining, and they need those pills.”

  1. The act of abortion should stop. It is murder. If the pro-abortion don’t like it tuff stuff. Use birth control, get their tubes tied, keep their legs closed, men can get sniped. Stop using abortion as your means of birth control, take responsibility for what you do, you lay day and spread your legs you know your chances of getting pregnant. STOP killing babies!

  2. Here’s a novel idea, don’t have unprotected sex! Or keep your legs together until your ready to have a baby! Make sure every high school boy understands that if he gets a girl pregnant he will be responsible for the support of that child until it reaches 18 even if that means he’s sent to a work farm to pay for it.

  3. The plan by such people is not abortion for themselves or a loved one in a difficult situation, but promiscuous abortions done on multiple people, quite possibly without good cause and quite possibly for political or even recreational purposes. We are supposed to accept gun restriction and even gun confiscation because they might be used to kill people, and yet we are supposed to facilitate and celebrate the distribution of infanticide paraphernalia precisely because it is used to kill people.

  4. This is STUPID! You won’t be allowed NOT to have them just in certain situations! If people didn’t jump into bed with everybody and had s** for FUN, then there wouldn’t be the need for Abortion in the first place! Go on the pill if you want to have s** for fun…or just use a condom for pete’s sake! There is a SHELF LIFE for everything and once it’s past the shelf life then it’s no good…we live in such a moral-less time…

  5. Mail order murder. Isn’t that special?

  6. How about they educate themselves on “Birth control” AND practice responsible birth control!! It’s less invasive in every sense AND it works. I’m old enough to remember the days b4 “the pill” and back alley abortions. Abortion is NOT responsible birth control!

  7. How totally ridiculous is this??? Abortion preppers? OMG..Plan B is basically Oral Birth control pills, taken in one dose vs taking a pill every day. Which makes more sense?? Use the contraception as it is pescribed and YOU won’t need Plan B! Ppl thinking there will be a ‘abortion apocalypse’ are NOT survivalist….THEY are just plain stupid. How about educating women on Birth control instead of spouting insane propaganda like this? No wonder he’s anomyous…Use your heads women!
    BTW No one has said ‘Abortion is illegal’…the states are putting guidelines in place. Yes, accountability..remember that? If you can’t figure out what to do in 16 weeks, (4 months) Then YOU need to get it together. So get out and vote for the safety of all women.

  8. Two options for the misguided;
    1) don’t have intercourse
    2) try birth-control

    • Misguided – heh. You seem to be forgetting rape victims and those that pregnancies that are unviable (i.e. known still-birth scenarios) and can cause fatal harm to the mother. Both are real world scenarios that could require that.

      Here’s an option – perhaps all males should get the snip and have the procedure reversed when they are ready to support these children. Or maybe we set up a fund for women to be able to adequately care for a new born baby without the support of a male figure (who can just leave at any time).

      Nah, scratch that. Let’s populate and continue to complain that everyone wants a hand out – pro-life, until they leave the womb. Yeah – let’s keep doing that.

      Don’t be naive and think this is solely on the woman. It takes two to tango – yet the woman is the one who is stuck with all the consequences. If your argument is no sex before marriage, fair enough – I understand. But you have blinders up if you believe that is the way the world is, though.

      I’ll leave you with this. In Biblical times, when a woman was found to be pregnant out of wedlock, what happened to the woman? What was the law? And what happened to that baby in the womb?

    • Agree 100 💯 percent

    • Why is this all on the woman? Perhaps we should consider the responsibility of the male –

      1. He could have forced himself on the woman
      2. Able to walk away without any burden of carrying the child to full term.

      Maybe we should consider a vasectomy for all males and then, once the man is ready to support a child, have it reversed. I don’t see the harm in that.

  9. You are being very short-sighted with your response, especially point #2.

    1) Will every man use condoms?
    2) Will every man stop raping? The morning after pill is given to every woman who has been raped.
    3) Will every woman’s body now completely agree with the chemicals being injected into her body in the form of birth control pills?
    4) Will the big pharma companies finally start producing a birth control pill for men that men WILL take?

    These are just a few of the questions that come to mind however I’m sure there are a lot more points that can be made.

    As I said in my opening statement, your response is extremely short-sighted.

    • You left out “crossing your legs”, “cunnilingus”, “going without”, “finger” and many other ways to fill your hunger without the risk of the dreaded by-product which you would then have to kill.

  10. Misguided – heh. You seem to be forgetting rape victims and those that pregnancies that are unviable (i.e. known still-birth scenarios) and can cause fatal harm to the mother. Both are real world scenarios that could require that.

  11. Well I certainly wouldn’t want any of Them to be My Mother anyway
    No consequences for loose behavior and low morals

  12. Why am I being censored?

  13. This proves these women use abortion (murder) as a means of birth control.

  14. Murder is murder regardless of what you name it.

    I opened this article about “Vaginal Preppers” and it was on a page that had 15 scantly clad young women advertising very SMALL bikinis. I am sure the site owners have an excellent sense of humor. I find it ironic that after reading all the hype about the rights of women to have abortions because of sex crazy men demanding that they spread their legs, their comments are on the same page where women are openly (pun intended) displaying the source of the problem. I, for one feel, that, if your unborn child is worthless to you then you are worthless too. Go ahead and abort your mistake. I think all life is precious but I will acknowledge that I might be mistaken about people who abort as a form of birth control.
