Poland: government threat to restrict EC access

May 29 2017. Since mid 2015, and upon recommendation from the European Medicines Agency, EC pills with ulipristal acetate can be bought without prescription from pharmacies in Poland and everywhere else in the European Union except for Hungary.

On May 25th, however, Members of Parliament in Poland voted in favor of a new bill which proposes, among other restrictions, to reinstate mandatory prescription to buy ulipristal acetate EC pills. Women’s reproductive rights are at stake again.
