Does abortion cause cancer?

No, it does not

Abortion
Abortion is a very debated topic, and rightfully so, with valid arguments from both sides. Which view of it you take should be based on facts and conscience, not unfounded fear. I would like to believe that most of us who gravitate towards the Pro-Life camp would support our views with valid points and not falsehoods or demonizing but sadly, it is not often true (from both sides). Best to you.

How do abortion pills work?

Interrupts hormones

Abortion
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.

Can abortion cause fibriod?

No

Fibroid
Absolutely no relation between these two things. We don't know why fibroids form in some women but not others, but there's no relationship between having a medical or surgical abortion and the formation of fibroids.
