Health Canada issue public advisory for abortion, morning after pills sold on ‘Dr. Pooja’ websites – CTV

May 17, 2023

Health Canada put out an advisory on Tuesday warning against purchasing unauthorized prescription drugs from the website “Dr. Pooja”, which sells pills labelled to contain mifepristone and misoprostol, commonly used as the “morning after” pill.

The agency says Canadians should not buy or use any unauthorized health products from “Dr. Pooja” websites, as the drugs could be ineffective, expired, mislabeled, subject to recalls, or counterfeit versions of authorized products.
