What exactly are abortion pills?
Abortion pills, also called medication abortion, can be used to end a pregnancy up to 10 weeks from the first day of your last period. The most effective process involves taking two different FDA-approved medications: mifepristone and misoprostol.
How much do abortion pills cost?
Abortion pills can cost anywhere from $40 to $600. Many services accept private insurance, and some states permit the use of Medicaid. Many services also offer discounts to those who can't pay. Check with your local provider or preferred online service for a more precise explanation of costs.
How safe are abortion pills?
Medication abortion is so safe that it could be sold over-the-counter (OTC) without a prescription if not for political considerations. Fewer than 4 out of 1,000 will have severe complications requiring hospitalization, infusion, or surgery. To put that into perspective, acetaminophen (Tylenol) is the foremost cause of acute liver failure in the U.S., sometimes accounting for nearly 25% of emergency department visits per year.
