You know what the Midwest is? Young and restless.
Women’s health centers are reporting that Texas women are crossing the border to Mexico in search of misoprostol, a drug used primarily to treat ulcers. Misoprostol requires a prescription in the United States, but it can be purchased over-the-counter in Mexico. The drug is sometimes paired with mifepristone by doctors in a medical abortion procedure, but misoprostol alone is essentially ineffective in terminating pregnancies. Kristeena Banda, director of Whole Woman’s Health discovered that “A few times a week, women come in to ask for a pregnancy test. They’ve taken the pills, but they’re still seeing symptoms of pregnancy.” Though taking the drug while pregnant won’t terminate a pregnancy, it is not without consequences - especially when women are given varying recommendations regarding dosage.
