A new abortion start-up is driving an unmarked van around Colorado distributing dangerous abortion pills to women in parking lots.
Although it may sound creepy and disturbing to most people, Just The Pill’s work is being highlighted in national news outlets such as NPR and Ms. Magazine.
According to NPR for Northern Colorado, the new abortion group is driving a “non-descript mobile clinic,” or “van,” along the Colorado border, handing out abortion pills for $350.
“It doesn’t have any signage on it,” Dr. Julie Amaon, medical director for the group, told NPR. “We’re not trying to tell people what we’re doing to keep patients safe because we know that even in more protected states like Colorado, there are still lots of people that don’t agree with what we’re doing.”
The group is targeting women in midwestern states that protect unborn babies from abortion. Its website advertises to women in Minnesota, Montana and Wyoming as well as those who can travel from other states.

All that women or girls – the website FAQ page does not mention any age restrictions – need to do is sign a few forms in a “brief telemedicine appointment” and pay the money to get the pills. Just The Pill apparently does not provide examinations or ultrasounds, just a short online chat with the person and then they mail or deliver the pills with the van.
Here’s more from the report:
Patients who live in states with restrictions can travel to Colorado to pick up the medications from the organization’s sole mobile clinic, which parks at various spots near state lines.
“We try to get to as close to the patients as possible, depending on what method they’re coming in,” Dr. Amaon said. “Are they coming in by bus, by car, by plane? And so that gives us some more flexibility to move around and meet patients where they are.”
It appears that not many people want to work for the new abortion group. NPR noted how the van frequently is “understaffed and closed often.”
Not many women want an abortion from an unmarked van either, it seems. According to the report, the group only has had about 100 women come for abortion pills in the past three months – even with the positive publicity.
Also disturbing, Just The Pill is selling a cringy T-shirt with a smiley faced-heart, waving hands and sparkles that says “Abortion forever.”
Despite all this, however, Just The Pill already is talking about expanding. NPR reports the group wants to buy another abortion van to drive around Illinois and potentially a bigger vehicle to perform surgical abortions in next year.
Most disturbing of all, of course, is the abortion practice itself. Potentially 100 unborn babies already may be dead because of it. Abortion pills are dangerous for pregnant mothers, too, especially if she has an undetected ectopic pregnancy.
The abortion drugs mifepristone and misoprostol typically are prescribed together to abort unborn babies up to 10 weeks of pregnancy. The Biden administration began allowing them to be sold through the mail last year without ever seeing a doctor in person. In England, which began allowing mail-order abortion drugs around the same time, new investigations show a huge increase in ambulance calls and reports of coercion and abuse.
The abortion drug regimen is used for more than half of all abortions in the United States, according to a new report from the Guttmacher Institute. In 2020, the drugs were responsible for 54 percent of all unborn babies’ abortion deaths, up from 39 percent in 2017, the pro-abortion research group found.
In the United States, the FDA has linked mifepristone to at least 26 women’s deaths and 4,000 serious complications between 2000 and 2018. However, under President Barack Obama, the FDA stopped requiring that non-fatal complications from mifepristone be reported. So the numbers almost certainly are much higher.
Studies indicate the risks are more common than what abortion activists often claim, with as many as one in 17 women requiring hospital treatment. A recent study by the Charlotte Lozier Institute found that the rate of abortion-related emergency room visits by women taking the abortion drug increased more than 500 percent between 2002 and 2015.
In August, a GB News investigation found a 64-percent increase in emergency calls for abortion pill complications since England began allowing abortion drugs to be sold through the mail.
