The Abortion Pill

The abortion pill (used in chemical abortion) is actually two drugs, usually taken separately.  The first pill, Mifeprex™(mifepristone), also known as RU-486, blocks the hormone progesterone, which is needed for pregnancy to continue.  When used together with the second pill, Misoprostol, it will end an early pregnancy (70 days or less since the first day of the last menstrual period, or “10 wks LMP”).

Risks include seeing embryonic parts expelled, possible life-threatening infection known as sepsis (severe systemic infection), in some cases, failure to abort (which may require an additional surgical procedure to complete the abortion), undiagnosed ectopic pregnancy, and possible hemorrhaging.

Information is lacking about the long-term mental health effects of chemical abortion, and in particular, how women are affected by giving themselves an abortion, and seeing fetal parts expelled.

According to the FDA, some women should not take Mifeprex™.  No one should take Mifeprex™ if it has been more than 70 days since the first day of her last menstrual period, or if she

  • has an ectopic pregnancy (a pregnancy outside of the uterus)
  • has problems with the adrenal glands (the glands near the kidneys)
  • is currently being treated with long-term corticosteroid therapy (medications)
  • has had an allergic reaction to mifepristone, misoprostol, or similar drugs
  • has bleeding problems, or is taking anticoagulant (blood-thinning) drug products
  • has inherited porphyria
  • has an intrauterine device (IUD) in place. (It must be removed before taking Mifeprex™.)

Before considering the abortion pill or any other medication, get information from a trusted source, so that you understand how it works and the possible side effects. Women have trusted the HOPE Pregnancy Center for pregnancy decisions since 2010.
