Is there an over the counter abortion pill that I can take without a prescription?

NO, there is not an abortion pill that you should take without a prescription. The abortion pill is different from emergency contraception, sometimes called the morning-after pill. The medication abortion pill will terminate a pregancy.  You should consult with a medical provider, receive an exam, as well as an ultrasound to confirm your pregnancy to figure out how far along you are before the abortion  pill is prescribed. The morning after pill prevents pregnancy and is available over the counter at pharmacies and drugstores.  Ask your licensed medical provider to explain the difference between the two or make an appointment with RealOptions. If you have questions. It is very important to know the difference between the abortion pill and the morning after pill.
