The Atlantic magazine features Gynuity research in an article about online abortion pills in the US
An article published in the magazine, The Atlantic, examines the practice of buying abortion pills online and features recent research by Gynuity Health Projects and Plan C.
Our study found that obtaining mifepristone and misoprostol from online vendors that do not require a prescription is feasible in the United States. Given our findings, we expect that some people for whom clinic-based abortion is not easily available or acceptable may consider self-sourcing pills from the internet to be a rational option.
