Nigeria, Ghana Top Online Searches for Abortion Pill - Report

Nigeria and Ghana are the two countries with the highest search interest for Misoprostol, an abortion pill. The findings, according to the BBC, also suggest that in countries where abortion laws are more restrictive, there are more Google searches for abortion pills.  Ghana only allows abortions in cases of rape, incest, foetal impairment or to preserve a woman's mental health. In Nigeria, abortion is only allowed in situations where a woman's life is in danger.
