Medical Abortion

About RU-486

It’s officially called RU-486 and was approved by the FDA in 2000. Another name for RU-486 is a medical or chemical abortion.


The pill is actually two drugs, mifepristone and misoprostol, and it’s taken in two separate doses. (One at an abortion clinic or doctor's office and one at home.)

The abortion pill is not the same as the emergency contraceptive, The Morning After Pill or Plan B One Step.

How Much Does the Abortion Pill Cost?

A medical abortion can cost anywhere between $300-$800. Some insurance companies cover a portion of the cost.

Pre-Abortion Checklist

Are You Really Pregnant?

There are many reasons you may have a positive home test. 

Before making any decisions, know for sure you are pregnant and that the pregnancy is viable. 


It’s important to determine if the pregnancy is normal and if you are at risk for a natural miscarriage or ectopic (tubal) pregnancy to prevent any complications.

How Far Along Are You?

Abortion costs vary and depend on how far along you are, where you get a medical abortion or the type of abortion procedure. Most clinics require an ultrasound confirmation. 


Make an appointment for a free ultrasound today to determine how far along you are and what options are available to you.

Do You Have a Risk of Infection?

Not all abortion providers provide testing for STIs or STDs. Ruling out or treating an STI or STD is important because infections or serious complications can occur if the STD/STI isn’t treated before you undergo an abortion procedure.

At your initial appointment at Life Choices, we can also provide you with STI testing at no cost to you.
