Basics on the Abortion Pill & Morning After Pill
Medical Abortion (AKA RU-486 or the Abortion pill): This is a multistep process. Mifepristone is given orally during the first office visit. Misoprostol is to be taken 24-48 hours later. Women report that what follows is “labor-like” pain with heavy cramping, along with heavy bleeding, for hours/days prior to the expulsion of the fetus. The end result occurs outside of a medical facility, usually at home. As with any medical procedure, there are health risks. A follow-up appointment with the abortion clinic doctor is highly recommended to ensure there are no signs of infection and that a surgery is not needed to complete the abortion. The financial costs have been reported to be between 300 to 800 dollars. Costs are higher if there are complications
Morning After Pll (AKA Emergency Contraception or E.C.): There are different types of morning-after pills and they are not the same as the abortion pill. While the abortion pill is taken after pregnancy is confirmed, the Morning After Pill is taken within 72 hours after unprotected sex. It works to: 1) prevent or delay ovulation; 2) prevent fertilization; or 3) prevent implantation after an embryo is fertilized (causing an early abortion). As with any medication, there is a likelihood of complications and side effects. Some side effects include: nausea, abdominal pain, headache, dizziness, vomiting, menstrual changes and abnormal bleeding. The cost ranges from 35-65 dollars.
Even though we do not perform or refer for abortion, we want to arm you with all the information regarding the different procedures without the use of disturbing videos or photos. Pressure, shame or scare tactics are not what we are about here. We fully understand and believe your decision is—YOUR DECISION.
We are a non-profit organization and receive no financial gain in your pregnancy decision. Our goal is to help you during this time—and going forward—regardless of your ultimate decision. We are "Pro-Education" & “Pro-Woman”.
