And pro-choice activists have announced plans to fly the first-ever abortion drone carrying packages of abortion-inducing pills from Germany to Poland, where abortion is illegal.

The drone is set to depart next Saturday, June 27. You can see our interview with Women on Waves founder Rebecca Gomperts at
