Abortion may seem like a straightforward decision, but there are several important things to consider:
- Procedure type (medical* vs. surgical abortion)
- Cost (varies according to procedure type)
- Pain (during and after procedure)
- Risks (physical, emotional, relational)
Abortion Pill Information
The abortion pill, also known as RU-486 or Plan C, can be used up to 10 weeks gestation. The process begins with confirmation of pregnancy, which includes a positive pregnancy test and ultrasound to determine gestational age and viability. This will determine if your baby is in the uterus and has a heartbeat. Additionally, 25% of all pregnancies end in miscarriage; if you miscarry abortion would not be necessary. We can provide you with a free confirmation at each of our clinics. The next step involves taking a series of pills. The first pill is Mifepristone, or Mifeprex. It works by blocking the effects of progesterone, the hormone which aids in the baby’s growth and development. Two days later, the second pill, Misoprostol, or Cytotec, is taken. It works by causing contractions in order to deliver the deceased baby. To learn more about the abortion pill, please read our blog post The Abortion Pill: What You Need to Know.
*CAUTION: The abortion pill (RU-486 or Plan C) is NOT recommended and can be dangerous if you have a tubal pregnancy. The abortion pill (RU-486 or Plan C) is also not recommended for women whose last menstrual cycle is greater than 10 weeks.
Question: Is the abortion pill the same thing as the morning after pill (Plan B)?
Answer: No, Plan B which is sometimes called the morning after pill is actually an emergency contraceptive. It is recommended to be taken within 72 hours after sex.

One of the best choices you can make when faced with an unplanned pregnancy is the choice to discuss your options in a safe, confidential setting. Our medical staff is available to consult with you about your medical options. There is no charge or financial obligation for these services. To ensure your comfort and well-being, we have female nurses and medical personnel available that understand your situation. Birth Choice has trained staff experienced in serving those facing the challenges pregnancy can bring. Whether you are considering abortion, adoption or parenting, making the right choice takes time. Allow yourself time to objectively learn all the facts and weigh all your options at a place that won’t profit from your ultimate decision. Because all of the services offered at Birth Choice are free and confidential, we do not profit from any decision our clients make. Abortion clinics in Memphis and abortion clinics in Nashville, however, charge for their services and may profit from your decision. Birth Choice does not perform or refer for abortion services.
Don’t allow anyone to rush you or pressure you in the decision-making process as this is your private choice. We are here to give you the support and information that can help you in this process. Remember, your health both now and in the future may depend on the pregnancy choices you make.
If you are considering abortion, there are important details you need to know in order to protect yourself. Every woman considering abortion needs an ultrasound to confirm the location of the baby (whether or not the baby is inside the uterus), the presence or absence of a heartbeat, and the age of the baby. Birth Choice offers ultrasound free of charge, however, abortion clinics in Memphis and abortion clinics in Nashville do not provide free ultrasounds. Your positive pregnancy test and evaluation by one of our nurses will determine your eligibility for an ultrasound.
