Okay, then that explains it. That's not a good use of the drug, to be honest. Horrible bleeding and pain when used further along in the pregnancy. Used as intended (they call it "the morning after" pill for a reason), it's more effective with a lot fewer side effects.
And as I was saying, if PP went that route (the old "safe, legal and rare") instead of pushing for elective 3rd trimester abortions, they could capture a lot more of the people in the middle.
The problem with them is the same as almost every special interest group. Including the National Right to Life foundation. It's become about the money. That's why the right to life groups end up supporting the 20 week ban over the heartbeat bans. Heartbeat bans cuts their funding in that state.
I've come to believe that the Republican party doesn't really want to get Roe overturned anyway. Since Roe, every Republican Presidential candidate that has made abortion a central element of their campaign has carried the Catholic vote. Prior to Roe, they never carried the Catholic vote. No Republican has won the popular vote without carrying the Catholic vote. So you kind of see the problem for the Republicans if Roe were to be overturned.
