A Detroit activist who went viral this week
after taking an abortion pill live while doing a local news interview said it
was not a gimmick and that they did it to demonstrate "the ease and
effectiveness of the medication."

Jex Blackmore, who uses they/them pronouns, appeared on a segment of WJBK FOX 2
Detroit's “Let It Rip" on Sunday to discuss abortion access with host
Charlie Langton and Rebecca Kiessling, an advocate and lawyer brought on to
argue the antiabortion stance.
