Abortion by definition is the removal of a  baby from the uterus in order to end a pregnancy. There are two major types of abortion procedures: medication abortion (RU-486/the abortion pill), and surgical abortion. Both come with different side effects and risks. The type of procedure done will depend on how far along you are. Make sure to discuss your options with a medical professional. With medication abortion, two different drugs are used to terminate the pregnancy. Surgical abortion normally involves anesthesia and surgical instruments to remove the contents of the pregnancy.
