Abortion pill: Yes the abortion pill is safe and if you have concerns about breastfeeding just empty your breasts and store the frozen breast milk until the abortion is completed then resume breastfeeding.

No increased risk: The breastfeeding will not increase the risk of taking the abortion pill, but the pill might cause your milk to dry up.
