Memes and status updates explaining how women could legally obtain abortion pills in the mail exploded across social platforms.
Almost immediately, Facebook and Instagram began removing some of these posts, just as millions across the U.S. were searching for clarity around abortion access.
“DM me if you want to order abortion pills, but want them sent to my address instead of yours,” the post on Instagram read.
Vice Media first reported on Monday that Meta, the parent of both Facebook and Instagram, was taking down posts about abortion pills.
Abortion pills, however, can legally be obtained through the mail after an online consultation from prescribers who have undergone certification and training.
