Early Abortion Options

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This two-page fact sheet uses a question and answer format, presented in an easy to read chart, to educate people about early abortion options. It compares and contrasts the medication abortion (the abortion pill) and the manual vacuum aspiration abortion procedures. It explains how each procedure works, how far along in the pregnancy a person can be to use each method, and clarifies that neither method will lower a woman's chances of getting or staying pregnant in the future. The document discusses the safety of each procedure, and outlines their comparative advantages and disadvantages.
