FAQs

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 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 people out of 1,000 will have serious 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.

Additional Information:

  • There is no legal risk to people who get abortion pills from a health care provider who is licensed to provide services in the United States and take those pills as instructed by the provider.
  • There may be legal risk when people find and use the pills on their own, without a prescription from a licensed health care provider or with a prescription from a provider who is not licensed in the United States. This risk may vary by state.
  • On April 12, 2021 the FDA announced that, effective immediately, both medication abortion and miscarriage patients are able to access mifepristone via delivery from their providers or through mail-order pharmacies. While individual states may still impose restrictions, the FDA will no longer require patients to travel far from home or risk exposure to COVID-19 just to access safe and effective abortion care.
