Abortion pills in US pharmacies soon | Abroad

From now on, mifepristone, one of the two drugs used to interrupt a pregnancy, would also be available in pharmacies in states where abortion is still allowed. A doctor’s note is required to obtain the pills. Moreover, the pharmacy itself decides whether to accept this note or not.

Since the US Supreme Court overturned “Roe vs. Wade”, thus removing the entrenchment of the right to abortion from the Constitution, the demand for abortion pills has clearly increased. Demand rose the most in states that completely ban abortions.
