Having an abortion

Are you facing an unwanted pregnancy? You know if the time is right to give birth, raise and love a child, and provide a good life. Today, you may feel that you absolutely can’t have a baby. At another point in your life, you may decide it’s the right time to have a baby.


Can I have a home-based abortion with pills?

Abortion pills are safe to use at home, as long as you are not:

  • More than 10 weeks pregnant;
  • allergic to mifepristone or misoprostol;
  • facing serious health problems, including blood-clotting problems;
  • having a pregnancy that is growing outside the womb (ectopic pregnancy); or
  • using an intrauterine contraceptive device in the womb (e.g. the coil, a progesterone IUD).  If you are, just make sure to have it removed before using the pills.

Why women choose to have an abortion with pills?

  • Many women choose this method because it feels less invasive – very similar to a heavy period or miscarriage.
  • It may feel more private and convenient – you can do it at home or any other place you feel comfortable under supervision.
  • Often it is also the cheapest safe method to have an abortion.
