Like the writer, I see no reason why states can’t prohibit abortion drugs if they choose. It seems to me, however, that abortion drug bans raise practical issues that abortion bans do not.
For example, do all the same arguments against alcohol and narcotic prohibition apply? Or, assuming a state makes abortions illegal, does that automatically make the use of abortion drugs illegal? Or, what penalties might a woman who uses an illegal abortion drug face?
These and other issues are bound to become topics of discussion in the near future.
