At-Home Abortion Facts

What you need to know

FDA Black Box Warning

You should not buy Mifeprex over the Internet because you will bypass important safeguards designed to protect your health (and the health of others). Non-FDA approved drugs carry risks above and beyond expected side effects.

At-Home Abortion

An at-home abortion is known as self-induced abortion, self-managed abortion, taking the abortion pill or, sometimes, online abortion. Any abortion comes with risks and side effects. There are some facts you need to know before making the decision to end a pregnancy at home.

Have No Choice?

Many women who “choose” to get a medication abortion actually don’t choose it at all. Rather, they feel pressured or are even forced against their will.  If you find yourself in any of the following scenarios, you need to know that you always have the right to refuse any type of abortion.

You Have Resources

When faced with an unplanned pregnancy, getting an abortion is not your only option. No matter what your circumstances, you have options if you find yourself unexpectedly pregnant. We help to inform you about your options and connect you to the resources you need.

Potential Risks

Before you take any type of medication it’s important to understand the potential side effects and risks you could experience. You need to be aware that these pills even have a “black box” warning, which is the highest level of caution the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) puts on medication.
