Our staff can explain the types and risks associated with the various surgical abortions; however the abortion pill (also known as RU-486, medical or chemical abortion) is now responsible for more than half of all abortions.
The abortion pill has been documented to cause infection, serious illness, and death. (13)
- The use of RU-486 requires two different pills. (14)
- The first pill, Mifeprex, blocks hormones necessary to continue a pregnancy, thus causing the death of the baby. (15)
- Misoprostal is later administered to cause the baby to be delivered. This usually occurs at home, NOT at the clinic. (16)
- Medical abortions (abortion pill) fail in 1 out of 12 women. A follow-up surgical abortion is then required. (17)
It is vital for your health that you have an ultrasound before taking the abortion pill. The March of Dimes reports that 1 in 50 pregnancies are ectopic. (18) Taking the abortion pill without an ultrasound to confirm the location of your pregnancy can cause serious harm. See the Services page for more.
Our knowledgable staff can provide you with current, physician-approved information concerning the process and risks of all abortion procedures before you decide.
Abortion Pill Reversal
Many women later regret taking the abortion pill. There is hope of reversing the effects and thus protecting the health of the mother and the life of the baby. (19)
