How can I find abortion pills?


In the United States, misoprostol is available:

  • In pharmacies, with a prescription. Misoprostol is used to prevent ulcers in people with conditions like arthritis that require them to take non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) medication long-term.
  • From some internet veterinary supply stores and veterinarians, as it is used to treat ulcers and arthritis in dogs.
  • It is available over the counter in Mexico and many other Latin American countries. In Mexico, it is sold as “misoprostol”, “cyrux” and “cytotec”.  
  • Combination packs of mifepristone and misoprostol together are also available on the internet, although not every internet site is reliable.

If you live in Hawaii, New York, Oregon, or Washington State, you may be able to receive abortion pills by mail through the TelAbortion Study. Please visit for further information.
