Are you considering the abortion pill?
Mifepristone, also known as the abortion pill or RU-486, is prescribed for early abortions.
This method of abortion requires two to three visits to a clinic, using at least two drugs.
For some, a fourth visit for a surgical abortion is required.
Twenty-four to forty-eight hours after taking the first dose of Mifepristone, the patient takes a dose of Misoprostol.
Misoprostol starts uterine contractions, cramping, and additional bleeding.
This continues until the dead baby is expelled.
The bleeding and cramping continue for up to 30 days.
According to the manufacturer of the pills, surgical abortions are required for up to 1 out of 12 procedures.
The abortion pill has adverse side effects including:
- Hospitalization and blood transfusions.
- Possible risk of death (rare).
If you have taken the first pill, the process can still be reversed.
