Quebecers looking to terminate their pregnancy can do so by way of medication, but experts say the rules in the province around access to the abortion pill are too restrictive, and they want the option to be more widely available.

Access to the pill is more strictly controlled in Quebec than in the rest of Canada, with physicians in the province required to have a certain level of training for medical abortions before accompanying a patient through the process.
