  1. "Hospitals, outpatient clinics or gynecologists in private practice can obtain Mifepristone in Austria. Private individuals cannot obtain mifepristone from pharmacies on prescription. Mifepristone has to be administered in the presence of the doctor (!) or, following a written doctor's order, in the presence of a member of the senior health care and nursing staff.
    The cost makes access more difficult. The reality is that only a few gynecologists offer abortions with Mifepristone (or communicate that they offer it). A few gynecologists in private practice also offer mifepristone for women in difficult financial situations for a social fee (those are very rare exceptions). There is also a strong east-west divide in Austria, with access to mifepristone being worse in the west of Austria than in the east (in Vorarlberg, Tyrol and Burgenland there is one or no office that officially dispenses mifepristone). There is also a disparity between urban and rural areas.

    Tips: We have had the experience that individuals have been able to have abortions with Mifepristone in clinics/private practices that do not officially provide this medical service. If they ask directly and don't let themselves be shaken off, sometimes they receive Mifepristone. If there are financial difficulties, very few cities or federal states offer support (ask!!). Otherwise, women and families can ask for financial support from non-profit organisations such as Changes for Women. " - Anonymous, November 2022
