In brief: 2 different pills

Medical abortions are done with 2 different pills.
The first is ru-486. This is hwat is usually called the abortion pill. This pill kills the pregnancy tissue. A second pill, cytotec, (misoprostol) is used to get the body to get the pregnancy tissue out. The response to these pills is not completely predictable so follow up is necessary to make sure the abortion is completed.
