Facts you need to know before taking the Abortion Pill

The Abortion Pill is not 100% safe.

Serious, and sometimes fatal, bacterial infections and excessive bleeding have occurred in women who took the abortion pill. [1, 2]

The Abortion Pill is not 100% effective.

Taking the abortion pill does not guarantee that your pregnancy will be terminated or that the abortion is complete. This could result in an ongoing pregnancy, follow-up surgery, or serious complications requiring immediate medical attention. [3]

Serious side effects may mask deadly infection.

The abortion pill is a potent drug that can cause significant side effects, such as fever, vomiting, diarrhea, and severe cramping. These symptoms may or may not be associated with septic shock, a potentially fatal complication that has caused death within one week after medical abortion. [4] [5]

Drug interactions can increase your risk.

Serious adverse drug reactions can occur if you are taking another medication that negatively interacts with the abortion pill. This could change how your medications work and increase your risk for serious side effects. [6-8]

U.S. Supplier of the Abortion Pill has a shady past.

The Chinese pharmaceutical company that manufactures the abortion pill was found distributing contaminated and tainted drugs to the U.S. in 2008. [9]

Abortion Pills on the internet are dangerous.

A recent study found that abortion drugs purchased online and manufactured overseas were “damaged”, had “pinprick-sized holes”, were not the correct dose, were not tested for contaminants, and were sold by vendors under active investigation for fraud. [10]
