Medical abortion extended by two weeks

MS-2 Step (sponsored by MS Health), which is a composite pack of mifepristone and misoprostol, will allow women to access medical abortions for an additional two weeks, up from 49 days. 

This TGA- and PBS-approved indication will become available on 1 February and will streamline the prescribing process for GPs, according to Dr Philip Goldstone, medical director of Marie Stopes International Australia (MSIA).
