FEMFREE is a drug that suppresses the maternal instincts in women. It is not clear how this physical effect is acheived, but it seems likely that it suppresses certain hormones, and likely also reduces the likelihood of conception.
However, the social effects of the drug are even more striking. Shortly after the drug’s introduction, it was outlawed by President Lousewart, which swiflty led to the formation of a black market selling FEMFREE to the women who wanted it.

Technically, that should be MañanacillinTM, which is how it inevitably appears when mentioned in the pages of American Flagg!.
MañanacillinTM is of that class of substances euphemistically referred to as ‘morning after pills’ or abortifacients. Sold in pill form by the Plex, its existence serves primarily to reinforce the general disregard for the consequences of their actions that characterises most of the citizenry of 2030’s Chicago.
Curiously absent from American Flagg! is any religious group decrying MañanacillinTM as the offence against God’s will they would no doubt see it as.
