About the Abortion Pill (RU486)

The Abortion Pill (Mifeprex) has been FDA approved since the year 2000.

A medical abortion is a private choice. It allows women to terminate a pregnancy on their own terms—in the privacy of their own homes. The drug-induced miscarriage mimics a natural miscarriage.

Who Can Use the Abortion Pill?

The abortion pill is an option for women within the first 9 weeks of pregnancy. The length of the pregnancy is confirmed by a sonogram in the doctor’s office.

The fee for the abortion pill is $450 for self pay patients or most insurance plans cover the cost of the abortion pill. Two office visits, two sonograms and around-the-clock staff availability are included.”

Is the Abortion Pill Effective?

Clinical studies have found the RU486 abortion pill 98% effective. If it fails, women undergo the traditional abortion procedure at no additional cost. The most common side effects are bleeding and cramping.
