The Science of Pregnancy Termination

When it comes to pregnancy termination, many people are unclear about the abortion process. If you are considering terminating a pregnancy and want to have a better understanding of the procedures that are used, then watch this video to learn about the science of abortion.

Abortion procedures can range from taking a pill to undergoing surgery, and what option is right for you can depend on availability and how far along you are in your pregnancy. Oral tablets can be used to terminate a pregnancy if they are taken within 49 days of your last menstrual period. Up to about 16 weeks after conception, vacuum aspiration can be performed to abort a pregnancy.
