  1. Mifepristone is not available. Misoprostol is sold in pharmacies, preferably with a prescription. Access for urban and literate people could be easy. Access for rural women, poor, with low levels of education and/ or with hidden relationships is very difficult.

    There are many places (pharmacies, doctor's offices, various people) where desperate women are scammed either with costs, misinformation about dosages, intervals and information, resulting many times without the desired effect and surprising women with unwanted late pregnancies. We even know of places where they are sexually blackmailed by offering them misoprostol, as a result of the illegality that affects the most vulnerable women.
