Women in Nova Scotia now have more affordable access to the abortion pill.
Government announced it will be picking up the tab on Mifegymiso, a drug combination taken to medically terminate an early pregnancy of up to 49 days.
Pharmacies across the province will provide the pills to women with a valid health card and prescription.
An ultrasound is also required to rule out potential health risks.
Minister responsible for the Status of Women, Kelly Regan, says the move will cost government between $175,000 and $200,000 a year.
