Will I need a doctor’s prescription to buy abortion pills?

If you want to buy abortion pills in a local pharmacy you may or may not need a doctor’s prescription. This will depend on the regulations where you live. safe2choose unfortunately cannot provide you with a prescription to buy abortion pills elsewhere.

While Mifepristone is more difficult to find since it is a medicine mostly used to terminate pregnancies, Misoprostol is a medication also used to treat gastrointestinal complications. Therefore, most countries have misoprostol registered as a legal drug [1]. If you want to know more about your country’s legal status of abortion, visit www.howtouseabortionpill.org/regions/
