In order for the abortion procedure to be performed, two medical practitioners in addition to the attending practitioner must certify that the requisite preconditions for an abortion have been met.

Misoprostol is available under the brand name Cytotec and can cost anywhere between USD 20 – USD 60 per pill. It can be bought in a pharmacy but only with an accompanying prescription.
