The Risks of Medical Abortion
First, we wanted to define some of the physical risks of medical abortion (also known as the abortion pill), which are sent in the mail with the online (at-home) abortion process. A medical abortion involves two drugs to terminate an existing pregnancy: mifepristone and misoprostol.
Some physical risks of this abortion procedure, according to the Mayo Clinic, include:
- Incomplete abortion, which may need to be followed by surgical abortion
- An ongoing pregnancy if the procedure doesn’t work
- Heavy and prolonged bleeding
- Digestive system discomfort
The Safety Risks of Online(At-Home) Abortion
With much more abortion access online, some women have doubts and concerns, as it could bypass the safeguards to protect women’s health and safety. Some of the risks of online (at-home) abortion include:
- Unverified ingredients or inaccurately listed risks and side effects
- Chance of incomplete abortion
- The ability to skip pre-abortion screenings (may lead to severe health risks)
- Little to no medical supervision – (can cause health complications if drugs are taken incorrectly)
