California Woman Sues Doctor & Pharmacy for Accidentally Prescribing an Abortion Pill, Making Her Miscarriage

A woman in California is suing her doctor and pharmacy for accidentally prescribing and filling a prescription for an abortion pill.

Lorena Anderson unknowingly took the pill and miscarried. She is suing Dr. Maria Rasul at Bishop’s Peak Women’s Health and the Rite Aid Pharmacy’s Atascadero location.

Anderson visited Rasul at Peak Women’s Health in March 2018 to confirm a pregnancy. Rasul then, according to the suit, “carelessly and negligently” prescribed misoprostol, a prescription for a chemical abortion, which is usually taken in combination with another drug to complete abortion. Anderson says Rasul did not tell her of the drug’s “nature and effects.”

According to the suit, Rasul caught the mistake and contacted the pharmacy to cancel the order, but the doctor did not call Anderson. Anderson picked up the prescription, which Rite Aid staff “carelessly and negligently” filled anyway, the suit says.
