Medical students from Dalhousie University are lobbying PEI for patients to have free access to the abortion drug Mifegymiso.
Albertans now have free access to legal medical abortion drugs, the province announced. It joins New Brunswick and Ontario in offering universal coverage of RU-486 known by its trade name Mifegymiso to all people covered by provincial health care.
On July 24th, the province of Alberta announced it's covering the cost of the abortion drug, Mifegymiso.
The government used the budget to announce that it will publicly fund the abortion pill, Mifegymiso. A woman can get a prescription for the drug from her family doctor and then have it filled at a pharmacy by showing her OHIP card. The province has not yet determined the overall cost of making the drug available.
