Mifepristone, also known as the abortion pill or RU486, is prescribed by an abortionist within the first seven to nine weeks of pregnancy. Most women don’t really know how it works. Many abortionists will tell you that mifepristone is a “light procedure”; or is “relatively quick” and “easy.” That’s not the truth. It isn’t light, quick, or easy.
Mifepristone is a synthetic steroid that blocks your body from producing progesterone—a hormone your body needs to grow a healthy baby.
When your body stops getting the progesterone it needs to keep your pregnancy going, your uterus begins to break down and is unable to support your growing child. Your body will begin to shed its lining along with your developing baby, causing you to start your period, ending your child’s life.
Misoprostol tablets are taken orally or inserted vaginally about 36 to 72 hours after taking the mifepristone. These tablets will cause violent contractions, expelling your dead baby’s tiny body. This process may take a few hours or as long as a few days.
These dangerous drugs are unsuccessful approximately 8-10% of the time, requiring a surgical abortion to cut your baby into pieces for manual removal through your cervix.
If you have taken mifepristone, it may not be too late to save your child’s life.
