The Abortion Pill is actually two pills: The first pill: Mifepristone or RU-486 is taken at the clinic. Mifepristone has been used safely by millions of women. The pill works by blocking a hormone called progesterone. This will terminate the pregnancy by causing the tissues to separate from the uterus lining – basically resulting in a miscarriage.2nd pill: Misoprostol tablets are taken in the privacy of your home sometime between 24 and 48 hours after you’ve taken the Mifepristone pill. Misoprostol causes uterine contraction, the cervix to soften, and bleeding – which is necessary to abort the pregnancy.
What is an Abortion Pill?
An Abortion Pill (RU 486 / Mifepristone and Misoprostol) is taken orally and results in the termination of a pregnancy without surgery or any invasive measures. The Abortion Pill is also referred to as a Medical Abortion and can only be taken if you are less than 10 weeks pregnant, or it has been 70 days since you last menstruated.
