How does the abortion pill work?

The Abortion Pill (RU-486, or medication abortion) is a safe way to end a pregnancy in the earliest stages without procedure. Many women choose this method because it feels more natural and they like the comfort of being at home, having a friend or family member with them. This method does not require procedure or anesthesia and some women feel they have more control over the process, because they can plan the process around their demanding schedule. While the Abortion Pill method is a private experience, it is not one to go through alone. Having a good support system is essential. Understanding what is supposed to happen is important.
