The medicines for abortion is a pill that ends an early pregnancy. Generally, it is used up to 63 days after the first day of a woman's last period. The name for "the abortion pill" is mifepristone. Some of the medicines may cause serious birth defects if the pregnancy continues. The pill works by blocking the progesterone hormone. Without progesterone, lining of the uterus breaks down, and pregnancy cannot continue. In case of misoprostol it causes cramps and heavy bleeding. It usually lasts a few hours. More than half of women abort within four or five hours after taking the medicine. Other medicines which helps in termination of pregnancy are as follows: Cytotec oral, misoprostol oral, Pitocin injection, oxytocin injection, carboprost tromethamine intramuscular, Mifeprex oral, Prostin E2 vaginal, mifepristone oral, oxytocin in dextrose 5% intravenous, oxytocin in 0.9 % sodium chloride intravenous, Hemabate intramuscular, dinoprostone vaginal, oxytocin in dextrose 5%-LR intravenous, oxytocin in lactated ringers intravenous, oxytocin in dextrose 5%-0.9% sodium chloride intravenous and oxytocin in dextrose 5%-0.45% sodium chloride intravenous. These drugs are either taken orally or intravenously.

According to the WHO report since 2001, about ten women have died from clostridial toxic shock syndrome following early medical abortions using 200 mg mifepristone orally followed by 800 mcg misoprostol nine vaginally without prophylactic antibiotics. In the year 2010, about 765,651 legally induced abortions were reported to CDC from 49 reporting different places. The abortion rate for 2010 was 14.6 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15–44 years and the abortion ratio was 228 abortions per 1,000 live births. In comparison to 2009 the total number and rate of reported abortions for 2010 decreased by 3%. Stable abortion ratio was observed changing only 0.4%. Additionally, from 2001 to 2010 the number, rate, and ratio of reported abortions decreased 9%, 10%, and 8%, respectively.

Women in their twenties accounted for the majority of abortions in 2010 and throughout the period of analysis. The majority of abortions in 2010 took place early in gestation: 91.9% of abortions were performed at ≤13 weeks’ gestation, and of the abortions performed at ≤13 weeks’ gestation, 71.7% were performed at ≤ 8 weeks’ gestation. In 2010, 17.7% of all abortions were medical abortions. One of the first oral abortion pills which were approved by the FDA in 2002, was Mifepristone. France and Sweden became two first European countries which approved . In 2012, Mifepristone was included into Australia.
