According to a global report, Ghana together with Nigeria topped online global search for abortion pill Misoprostol the last decade.

Per a report derived from Google data, Ghanaians and Nigerians are the world’s leading abortion pill searchers.

These reports also suggest that in countries where abortion laws are more restrictive, there is greater search interest in abortion pills. By buying pills online and sharing medical advice through WhatsApp groups, women are increasingly turning to technology to sidestep legal barriers to abortion.
