Here’s Some Basic Abortion Info:

Medical Abortion/Abortion Pill (5 to 7 weeks): The drug mifepristone (RU-486) is administered orally at the abortion clinic. This drug blocks the effects of progesterone, stop’s placenta growth, softens the cervix and makes the uterus ready for labor.  Misoprostol is given to the patient to take 36-48 hours later outside of the clinic. It is used to start uterine contractions. Bleeding can be quite heavy and lasts for an average of nine days. A follow-up visit is important to ensure a surgical procedure is not needed to complete the process.

Vacuum Aspiration (6 to 9 weeks): The cervix is enlarged and a powerful suction tube is inserted into the uterus. The contents of the uterus is removed.

Dilation and Curettage (8 to 16 weeks): The cervix is enlarged and a steel loop-shaped blade is introduced into the uterus. The blade is used to scrape the walls of the uterus to remove contents This procedure may be followed by suction aspiration.

Methotrexate or “M&M” (5 to 9 weeks): Methotrexate is normally used for treatment of cancers, arthritis, and certain dermatological conditions. It is not approved for abortions by the FDA, although it is sometimes used for this purpose. This drug is given by injection; it interferes with the growth process of rapidly dividing cells. Like RU-486, it is followed by misoprostol (hence the “M&M” nickname) to expel the uterus contents.

D&E (13 to 20+ weeks): In this late term abortion the cervix is dilated, either mechanically or with laminaria. The physician uses forceps to remove contents of the uterus.

D&X (20 to 32+ weeks):The procedure is also called Intact D & X, Intrauterine Cranial Decompression, and Partial Birth Abortion. It is not legal in all locations.
