Websites Selling Unapproved Abortion Pills Are Booming

A murky online market for abortion pills is thriving as some U.S. states tighten abortion restrictions.

Dozens of websites state they ship abortion drugs anywhere in the U.S. without a prescription, which violates Food and Drug Administration rules. Most of the sites don’t clearly state who operates them or where they get the pills. The operator of one website said demand for abortion pills has surged since the Supreme Court removed constitutional protection for abortion in June.
