Are the early term abortion medications safe?

The medications used to terminate pregnancies in early term have been studied since the 1980’s and they have been used for this indication for over thirty years. There is less than a 1 percent chance of complications that can occur. The most common is failure of the medications to work and the pregnancy continues to grow. Rarely does heavy bleeding occur that requires a blood transfusion. Other complications include the possibility of retained tissue with possible uterine infection. There have been a few reported deaths related to a rare infection but there is no direct evidence that the deaths were directly caused by the medications that were taken.
