A medical abortion made in the first trimester of the pregnancy carries a very low risk for the occurrence of complications. This risk is similar to the risk of an spontaneous abortion.
A physician can easily treat the problems when they occur.
Is medical abortion dangerous?
A medical abortion is the safest way to perform an abortion. It is safer than a childbirth, even in first world countries where births are considered very safe.
If you are not afraid of giving birth, then you shouldn’t be afraid of having an abortion. It is something natural and safe when done correctly.
The medical abortion with Misoprostol (Cytotec – 200mcg) is done in most European countries. In France alone, approximately 1 000 000 abortions have been performed with Misoprostol (Cytotec – 200mcg) since 1992, with no dead records (Information E. Aubrey).
The hypothesis of death associated with a medical abortion is less than 01 per 100 000 (13). Miscarriage is a relatively common occurrence related to pregnancy, occurring in approximately 15 in every 100 pregnancies. The rate of spontaneous abortion associated with mortality in the United States is less than one death per 100 000 miscarriages. This mortality rate is not so different from the death rate associated with medical abortion.
Let us compare this mortality rate with Viagra, a drug that treats erectile dysfunction. Since the beginning of 2000 approximately 11 million prescriptions for Viagra were passed. Later on that same year and according to an article published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, 564 men who used the drug had died. Based on the number of prescriptions written, this mortality rate is approximately of 1 death for each 20 000 users, for each prescription.
Since most users receive more than one prescription, this means that more users die. Apparently, the mortality rates associated with Viagra have not been sufficient to remove this drug from the market ratio. In some countries such as Brazil, Viagra is even sold without a prescription. It means that the medical abortion with pills is much safer than using Viagra.
Now let us compare me medical abortion with the mortality rate caused by Penicillin. The fatal allergic reactions occur in 1 cases per 50 000 -100 000 administrations. It means that medical abortion is safer than a treatment with Penicillin.
Although complications can occur, the medical abortion through this service is much less dangerous than having a clandestine abortion in countries where abortion is highly restricted.
Roughly 19 million of unsafe abortions happen each year, (abortions without guidelines or through the use of counterfeit products), and 68 000 of those procedures resulting directly in the death of the woman.

For each of these 68 000 women, there are 30 more (totaling 2 040 000 women) suffering from chronic pain and disability due to unsafe abortions.
