Considering Abortion? : Abortion Questions Answered

Types of Abortion

When making an informed decision about your pregnancy, it is important to know about all of your options. When it comes to abortion, there are two main categories or types of abortion. The first is surgical abortion and the second is the abortion pill (also called a medication abortion). In order to determine which type of abortion you  qualify for, you first need to know how far along you are into your pregnancy. Qualification is based on gestational age.

Surgical abortions can be performed using the vacuum aspiration procedure, dilation and currettage (D&C), dilation and evacuation (D&E), or labor induction. Read about the procedures, including when during pregnancy they are offered.

Abortion Pill

The abortion pill — or medication abortion — sounds simple, but the procedure usually requires more than one pill and more than one office visit. Read more about what to expect.
