Peru's Constitutional Court says Ministry of Health cannot sell morning-after pill
Speaking on Peruvian radio, Justice Ernesto Alvarez said, "The State cannot participate in the sale or the free distribution of this pill" because it cannot be "proven that this medicine does not have an abortifacient nature."

Alvarez explained that the court reached the conclusion that the pill's abortifacient potential exists regardless of whether or not it is sold or given away. "The court has not found any basis that could decisively establish that it does not have an abortifacient nature." For this reason, he added, the State cannot participate either in the sale or in the distribution of the morning-after pill and must exclude it as a valid tool for family planning."

Regarding the question of what to do with the previously manufactured pills, Alvarez answered that, "The legal advisors of the Ministry of Health have a variety of possibilities within the framework of the law."
