Abortion Pill Available Across Ontario at No Cost

Province Providing More Reproductive Choice for Women with Access to Mifegymiso

Ontario is giving women more choice over their reproductive health by making Mifegymiso, a safe and effective medical alternative to surgical abortion, available at no cost.

Indira Naidoo-Harris, Minister of the Status of Women was at Women's Health in Women's Hands Community Health Centre in Toronto to announce that, as of August 10, 2017, women with a valid health card and prescription from their doctor or nurse practitioner will be able to get the drug for free at participating pharmacies across the province.

Mifegymiso is taken to medically terminate an early pregnancy. It is a safe, effective and non-invasive alternative to a surgical abortion that women can administer themselves. By making it available at no cost, Ontario is giving women more autonomy around their reproductive health, removing a financial barrier, and increasing equity of access to abortion -- particularly in rural and remote areas.
