Abortion is a procedure that results in the voluntary termination of a pregnancy, either medically (abortion pill) or surgically.

All abortion procedures require an ultrasound to determine pregnancy and gestational age.

Medical Abortion (AKA Abortion Pill) is a multistep process and there are two types of medical abortion procedures. It is reported that around 10 percent of medical abortion clients must undergo a surgical abortion, in addition to the medical abortion process, to complete the pregnancy termination due to uterus contents remaining.
Surgical Abortion is a medical operation where the client’s uterus is dilated, but instead of it being dilated to begin the labor process as in a pregnancy delivery, the uterus is dilated to manually remove the fetus and placenta via suction, vacuum and curette (surgical instrument shaped like a scoop or spoon). As with any medical procedure, there are health risks to the client.
