After left-wing news outlet VICE posted a “do it yourself” guide to abortion that included detailed instructions for making ‘abortion pills’, critics pointed out the irony that one the ingredients listed is also used to treat horses.
Over the course of the last year, proponents of Ivermectin, a drug that advocates say helps cure COVID-19, were lambasted by the media for encouraging people to take “horse dewormer,” despite the fact that the drug is also prescribed to humans.
Social media networks acted to censor information regarding the efficacy of Ivermectin as well as banning prominent doctors who endorsed it.
Podcast host Joe Rogan was also pilloried by the mainstream media for saying he took Ivermectin as part of his recovery cocktail after he caught COVID.
VICE previously claimed that Joe Rogan “spread misinformation” about Ivermectin, “the horse-deworming drug he took” when the podcaster contracted the virus.
However, in an article published by VICE yesterday, journalist Jason Koebler encouraged women to seek abortions even if it became illegal in their state, linking to a video in which Mixael Laufer discussed the difficulties of acquiring misoprostol, which is used to treat ulcers in horses.

Mike Cernovich questioned whether Twitter would censor the article given its previous efforts to blacklist information about Ivermectin.
