Do pharmacies sell abortion pills? How much is Misoprostol at Clicks or Dischem pharmacy? There is no price for abortion pills in South African pharmacies.
Pharmacies in South Africa do NOT sell abortion pills under any circumstance. The medicine control act does not allow them to do so. South African abortion law also, only allows doctors, registered nurses and midwives to do abortion. That is where abortion medicine is found and not in pharmacies.
Clicks and Dischem do have Misoprostol (for other ailments) but you will not be able to get it for pregnancy termination not even with a prescription.
You also can NOT get a prescription for termination medicine, stating that you want to terminate a pregnancy. It will not happen.
So, there is No price for Misoprostol at Clicks or Dischem. You will not get the price because they will not give you abortion medicine under any circumstance.
The reason lies in the Act controlling medication and two who is allowed to do termination of pregnancy in South Africa.
Pharmaceutical Act Governing Dispensing of Medicines in South Africa
Pharmacies in South Africa are governed by an act of parliament. This acts stipulates how medicines are dispensed to people. The relevant act is abbreviated as MRSA – The Medicines and Related Substances Act, 101 of 1965.
This act breaks down medicines into 8 schedules. These schedules are broken down based on risk for abuse, dependency after usage (addiction forming) and out right dangerous. We shall discuss up to schedule 6. That is what is relevant to us.
The lower the schedule the less controlled.
Can be found in Supermarkets in the drug section. Very low risk medication.
The likes of mild pain killers, cough mixtures and likes. The medicines for self treatment.
Schedule 1- 2
These are medicines that you can buy over the counter without prescription in a pharmacy. They are kept behind a counter because they have a potential for abuse and habit forming.
When you go to a pharmacy you will find these behind the self medication department but behind a counter. You are only given enough and never more than what you need.
Schedule 3 -4
This medication needs a prescription from a doctor. It is usually repeat medication.
These medicines are controlled but you can get them from a pharmacist without a prescription in small doses under certain circumstances. Any repeat dose the pharmacist will insist on a prescription.
For example people suffering from high blood pressure can talk to a pharmacist to get a small supply of this medicine as they sort out a new prescription from a doctor. This is allowed.
Schedule 5 – 6
These are highly controlled medication that can lead to dependence, they are dangerous if not monitored and can be abused.
Codeine as cough mixture is an example. It leads to addiction.
Abortion pills lie in this category. They can be abused. Abortion pills if dispensed to any one may lead to uncontrolled terminations at any stage of pregnancy.
Abortion pills treat other illnesses like cancer, ulcers, arthritis and the likes. But they also used to terminate pregnancies. So because of the diseases they treat and the alternative usage they are highly controlled.
You can get this medication at a pharmacy but as treatment of those other diseases but not for abortion. The prescription would detail what you are treating and remember not abortion. The usage instruction would be different from abortion.
And no doctor in South Africa will give you a prescription detailing abortion. It is not going to happen.
Why you can not get an Abortion Medicine Prescription in South Africa
Abortion in South Africa can only be done by a trained nurse, midwife and doctor.
That is what the law says. A pharmacist is not included in that list and you are not on the list either. So for that reason no doctor will give you a prescription saying abortion medicine. It will not happen.
Doctors are highly trained people and know this thing. Pharmacist know that there is no doctor who will give you that prescription.
Nurses are allowed to terminate pregnancies but they will not write a prescription either. So getting termination medicine at a pharmacy over the counter will not happen at all.
Look at the picture below it shows who is allowed to terminate. That is where you will find abortion medication.
