Mifepristone and misoprostol, the medicines used in medical abortion, are on the Model List of Essential Medicines of the World Health Organization, which points out lifesaving medicines that should be available in every country. Medical abortion has been used by millions of women worldwide. Taking those medicines at home up to 9 weeks of pregnancy is a standard practice in many countries  (in Scandinavia, United States etc).

The medicines used in medical abortion provoke a miscarriage, and the symptoms are exactly like in case of a spontaneous miscarriage, which occurs in 15-20% of all pregnancies.  The medical supervision is not necessary during the process of medical termination of an early pregnancy, as long as a woman has been informed about what to expect. The risks of a complication are extremely low and most women report that they are very satisfied with the procedure at home. Medical abortion puts the option for a safe abortion into women’s hands, giving them the right to make their own decisions about whether to continue a pregnancy or not.
