Amazon has now wiggled its way in to receive a cut of the abortion industry’s multibillion-dollar profits. In January, Amazon began quietly selling Plan B, an abortion-inducing drug taken within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse. Amazon began selling the abortion drug for about $17 – well below the $32 manufacturing cost according to a Princeton research study.
Today, the average price of Plan B on Amazon is about $44. Selling the abortion drug isn’t the only way Amazon is making money off of women’s bodies. While investigating the ability to purchase Plan B from Amazon, advertisements for a plan… “C” appeared below the product. The advertisements, strategically shown to customers who are viewing Plan B on Amazon, are paid advertisements for Illinois abortion clinics.
If your $44 Plan B doesn’t work, here’s your plan C: an abortion that on average costs $421. Couple the advertising income from the abortion industry with the profits from selling Plan B and Amazon has a brand new income stream.
