New York City began offering free chemical abortions through a Bronx clinic Wednesday as part of a new program, which is slated to expand to several other boroughs this year, Democratic New York City Mayor Eric Adams announced Wednesday.

The city already offers abortion pills at some hospitals, but will be expanding the program to clinics in the Bronx, Queens, Harlem and Brooklyn in the coming year, according to Adams. The program will aim to provide 10,000 free abortions by pill each year, according to CNN.

The move comes after the Food and Drug Administration relaxed regulations on abortion pills, first by allowing mail-order pharmacies to dispense the pills in 2021 when the agency dropped the requirement that doctors dispense the pills to women directly, then by allowing most pharmacies to begin dispensing abortion pills following a simple application process beginning in early January. The Department of Justice also recently determined that it would allow the U.S. Postal Service to continue shipping abortion pills, including within jurisdictions that restrict abortions.
Pro-life advocates have warned that easier access to abortion pills without medical supervision can endanger women, as women who miscalculate gestational age and undergo chemical abortions later in their pregnancy are at a higher risk of requiring surgery or developing an infection, according to the Charlotte Lozier Institute. The abortion pill also does not treat ectopic pregnancies and women with undiagnosed ectopic pregnancies may not seek treatment in time, potentially risking hemorrhaging and death.
Adams did not respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

EDITOR’S NOTE: What is behind the current war against America’s children? Why are so many adults killing their unborn children right up to the moment of birth, or even after? Why are millions of kids sexualized virtually from birth, and injected with an experimental “vaccine” proven to be both ineffective and dangerous, then as toddlers transported to events glorifying mentally ill, demonically possessed men dressed as women?
Why are America’s children systematically sexualized at school, and by transgender recruiters on social media platforms like TikTok, seducing many into “identifying” as the opposite gender, or a brand-new imaginary gender, then encouraged to take powerful drugs and hormones and have their healthy breasts amputated or undergo chemical or surgical castration?
Why are our children simultaneously indoctrinated with toxic Marxist ideologies like “critical race theory” intended to condition them to hate and reject their own country, parents, faith, race, gender and themselves? Why are they simultaneously being frightened of the future by being fed lurid, terrifying – and groundless – apocalyptic tales of the imminent destruction of the world due to global warming?
No wonder youth suicides have skyrocketed, as have depression, anxiety, addiction and drug overdoses. Indeed, fentanyl, the No. 1 cause of death of younger Americans 18 to 45, destroys multitudes of children annually.
Make no mistake: The harm being done to America’s children in this multi-front war is not accidental: Children are the primary target.
WHY? How can all this be happening in the greatest nation on earth? Who and what is behind it? And HOW CAN IT BE STOPPED?
