Interrupts hormones: Mifepristone (aka ru 486) works by interrupting the pregnancy hormones which support the growth of the growing fetus and placenta. About 48 hours later, another medicine called Misoprostol is taken to help expel the pregnancy. This type of abortion is best done prior to 7 weeks, although sometime can be used even later up to 9 weeks.

Medical v. Sugical: A medical abortion is a pill that's an anti-progesterone and causes the placenta of very early pregnancy to fall away from uterus. A surgical abortion is when the physician uses an instrument and/or suction to remove a pregnancy from the uterus. In the first trimester, both are very safe. Sometimes you'll hear doctors refer to any loss of pregnancy, as an abortion, i.e. Spontaneous abortion.
