If the Medication Abortion (Abortion Pill) Procedure does not work, can patients decide not to go through with the abortion procedure?
Methotrexate and Misoprostol are known to be fetotoxic. In essence, they can cause severe fetal abnormalities and therefore once these medications are used, one must continue with the abortion procedure. There have not been any fetal toxic problems reported with RU486 in medical studies. It is known for patients less than 6 weeks, there is approximately a 40 percent chance of an abortion occurring without the use of Misoprostol.
