Abortion pill shortage13th July 2007
A shortage of the early medical abortion pill is forcing some women to pay privately for the treatment.
A BBC investigation has shown that women had to wait for an appointment to see a doctor to get a pill, which must be taken nine weeks of pregnancy. The inquiry also revealed there were about 100 women at one clinic in Bristol waiting for the pill, with many being told they will not be able to have it in time. The alternative was to pay privately for the medication or have an abortion.
