Pregnant Woman Given Abortion Pill by Mistake; Nevada CVS Fined $10,000

When Thomas arrived at the pharmacy to pick up her medication, instead of Endometrin, one of the drugs that was given to her by the CVS pharmacy in north Las Vegas was Cytotec, otherwise known as misoprostol, which is often used to cause a chemical abortion.

Two pharmacists, along with two technicians at the CVS, committed a series of mistakes that led to the abortion drug mistakenly being given to the patient, according to documents filed with the Nevada State Board of Pharmacy.
