There are 2 kinds of abortions available to women facing unwanted pregnancies:
- Medical Abortion: Medical abortion is the use of medicine to end a pregnancy. The medicine helps remove the fetus and placenta from the mother's womb (uterus)1.
- Surgical Abortion: Surgical abortion is a procedure that ends a pregnancy by removing the fetus and placenta from the mother's womb (uterus)2.
In order to know for sure which type of abortion you would be eligible for, you need to have an ultrasound exam to determine exactly how far along you are.
