More than three quarters of online requests to buy abortion drugs placed last year were made by people from states with laws that limit access to abortion, a new study suggests. 

The greatest proportion of requests were made from Mississippi, where abortions are banned after 18 weeks of pregnancy, women must undergo ultrasounds and be offered to see the images and wait 24 hours after a consultation to have an abortion.

Although requests came in from all 50 US states, the were next most common in Louisiana, Alabama, Tennessee and Texas

Ordering the abortive drugs, mifepristone and misoprostol online can provide easier, cheaper and less stressful access to pregnancy termination for all women.
