  1. "miso pills are available yet it is difficult to get as it can only be purchase through a prescription and can't be purchases from the counter without it. But there are some pharmacies (black-market) which sell the pills under a high price than the normal market value. So only a group of women/ girls who belong to a specific economic status can afford it. Also with the ongoing crisis there is a scarcity of medicines and in future it would be challenging to find the pills. Usually, people can just walk into pharmacies and request the pills and see if they get them or not (there won't be any legal issue at that point but to try and see to buy without the prescription, just maybe if that is a place which do not sell without the prescription you will be only judged). Some places which sell them actually knows how many pills to take and the steps as well, likewise some places just guide you through the process when you make a purchase for a medical abortion. Mostly people with real need just walk to few pharmacies to check which is not in their residential area/ home town and try to buy the pills. If women and girls are using surgical mean of abortions, they need to really ensure that they are going to a reliable places. There can be unhygienic and unsafe conditions and settings and can be performed by medically unqualified individuals. "- Anonymous- October 2022
