Women on Waves...(not what you think)

This had to be the most far out, had to do to be able to do it, thing I have heard of in a long, long time. Apparently to facilitate abortions where it's not legal, the process has been taken to international waters. has a ship (ocean going tug actually) and is currently sailing (or perhaps being blocked by warships) in order to provide services to women in Portugal where it's not legal or feasible.
The "Ms. Borndiep" is currently dispensing the abortion pill, Mifepristone or RU486 to women brought out to meet her, but is being prevented from entering Portuguese waters by the "Baptista de Andrade, F486" of the Portuguese Navy. Interesting choice of frigates for the task. Amazing effort by WOW, perhaps extreme, positions aside on the morality of abortion, this is something indeed.
