England and Wales make the distribution of abortion pills to be used at home definitive, starting this Tuesday (08).

8014612412001People who are less than ten weeks pregnant will receive the pills when they submit a medical request. The project was originally adopted to relieve pressure on the services of the British public health system (NHS), during the peaks of the Covid pandemic-55.

As of this week, the distribution becomes permanent, following Scotland, which has already made the pills available on the regular service.

8014612412001At the end of last year, the United States approved a similar practice, sending abortion pills through the mail, without the need for a face-to-face medical consultation.
