FT. LUPTON, Colo. — She is six weeks pregnant and when she went to the pharmacy to pick up an antibiotic her doctor had prescribed, the pharmacist gave her an abortion drug by mistake.
Mareena Silva might lose her unborn child because of the prescription drug error, which occurred last Thursday.
“I took it because I thought it was mine,” Silva said.
“My doctor immediately told me to try and make myself vomit to see if I could get the medicine to come back up,” Silva said.
