In 2019, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration accused Dutch abortion activist Rebecca Gomperts of putting women at “significant health risk” and demanded that she stop illegally selling abortion drugs through the mail.
Now, news outlets highlight her life-destroying work as if killing unborn babies in elective abortions is a good thing, and university professors praise her for sending ships, drones and boxes of abortion pills through the mail to countries and states that protect unborn babies’ lives.
This week, the Los Angeles Times published a lengthy article celebrating the Dutch abortion provider and her three organizations: Aid Access, Women on Web and Women on Waves, which are based in the Netherlands and Austria.
A lot of her work focuses on providing elective abortions in places where killing unborn babies is illegal, including more than a dozen U.S. states.
“Everywhere in the world, it doesn’t matter where, when abortion is banned, women will still have abortions,” told the LA Times. “This is something that cannot be stopped.”

But Gomperts’ abortion work does not address women’s real needs. She just is killing unborn babies and then abandoning women to suffer the consequences on their own.
Decades ago, while working in West Africa during her medical training, Gomperts said she witnessed women suffering from illegal botched abortions and felt like she needed to do something.
A member of the violent radical environmental group Greenpeace, she said she began Women on Waves to sail ships to do abortions on international waters off the coast of countries where abortions are banned. Later, she began Women on Web to send drones with abortion pills to countries like Ireland and Poland where unborn babies were protected from abortion.
Then, in 2018, she formed Aid Access for the purpose of mailing abortion drugs to the United States. Gomperts said she believes in selling elective abortions to women for any reason; it’s not just women struggling with difficult circumstances.
“I don’t need a horror story to justify it, and I don’t want anyone to need a horror story,” she told the newspaper. “Being forced to continue an unwanted pregnancy is a violation of fundamental rights.”
Here’s more from the report:
Aid Access operates around the clock with a far-flung staff of 30 people fielding about 1,000 emails and online requests a day from around the world, Gomperts said. The group’s model is straightforward: In the U.S., in states where abortion is legal, patients are matched with doctors who, following a consultation, write a prescription for abortion pills, which participating pharmacies ship to the person’s home.
In states where abortion is outlawed, Gomperts herself steps in, using her Austrian medical license to write prescriptions that are filled in India, a major pharmaceutical exporter, and sent to patients in unmarked parcels.
“Texas,” she said. “So many from Texas.”
Texas protects unborn babies by banning abortions, and many women have chosen life for their unborn babies because of its new laws and the support that pro-life advocates provide.
What Gomperts is doing is little different from the dangerous back alley abortions that she claims to want to protect women from. Her group sells abortion pills through the mail for $150 without doing a check-up on the pregnant mother or providing medical care afterward if she suffers complications. Instead, the woman is abandoned to suffer on her own, both physically and psychologically, and left to seek the help of emergency room physicians.
Recently, American OB-GYNs have reported an alarming rise in women calling them traumatized after taking abortion pills and then delivering their aborted baby’s body in the toilet – something Gomperts’ own website admits can be “distressing.”
Abortion pills can be physically dangerous for the mother, too. Studies indicate the risks of the abortion drug are more common than what abortion activists often claim, with as many as one in 17 women requiring hospital treatment.
Along with millions of unborn babies’ deaths, the FDA has linked mifepristone to at least 28 women’s deaths and 4,000 serious complications. 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.
“Abortion activists are playing a dangerous game with the lives of women and girls,” Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of SBA Pro-Life America, told the newspaper. “Mail-order abortions put the abortion industry’s agenda over the needs of the woman.”
Despite the risks to women’s and babies’ lives, Gomperts claimed she is meeting a need. She told the newspaper that she is advocating for abortion pills to be sold over the counter without a prescription, and she’d like to see them prescribed in lower doses as birth control.
She hinted at violent activism, too, if anyone tries to stop her abortion work. According to the report:
And if there is a return to the edgier tactics she employed earlier in her activist career, Gomperts — without giving details — is ready for that as well.
“Nobody’s going to be stopped any more,” she said. “Ever.”
