True & False: The Abortion Pill

True & False #1:

False: You don’t really have a choice besides abortion.

It can be so easy to feel like abortion is the only option you have for your unplanned pregnancy. Maybe your life circumstances make everything feel impossible or maybe someone is coercing you to have an abortion.

The truths you deserve to hear:

  • You actually have three options: Parenting, Adoption, and Abortion.
  • You’re extraordinarily capable and there is so much support for you.
  • The choice is actually yours.
  • Whether you feel like your circumstances are impossible or if someone is coercing you to choose abortion, The Cline Center can help you.

True & False #2:

False: If you regret your abortion decision after taking the first pill, there’s nothing you can do about it.

The abortion pill is actually a two-part regimen with two pills called Mifepristone and Misoprostol. Your growing embryo needs a hormone called progesterone to keep growing. When you take the Mifepristone pill, it will cut off the progesterone to your growing embryo. When you take the Misoprostol pill, your uterus will contract and push the fetus out of your body, through your vagina – which will cause bleeding and cramping.

Some women do experience regret during the abortion pill regimen.

The truth you deserve: you can reverse the abortion pill process after taking the first pill, mifepristone.

This is where abortion pill reversal comes in. Using the natural hormone progesterone, the same hormone that your body was using to grow your embryo, medical professionals have been able to save 64-68% of pregnancies through abortion pill reversal.

If you have taken the first pill and are experiencing regret you can reach out to the Cline Center, visit, or call 1-877-558-0333. No judgement!

True & False #3:

False: You don’t need an ultrasound or professional advice before taking abortion pills.

We get it, there’s a lot of conflicting information out there. Some websites may tell you that you can just take the abortion pills without having an ultrasound or seeking professional advice first.

The truth you deserve: it is always safest to have a diagnostic ultrasound to confirm the location, size, and viability of your fetus and other risk factors.

It’s also safest for your emotional and mental health to talk to a medical professional to understand what abortion will mean for you and what it will look like. With the Cline Center, during your private medical consultation with a medical professional you get all the information you need about the abortion procedure and your other options. You will learn about abortion procedures, the abortion pill + surgical abortion, abortion safety, possible risks and complications, abortion recovery, and how to advocate for your own rights, health, and well-being if you choose abortion.

True & False #4:

False: Abortion is always safe emotionally and physically

The truth you deserve: no medical procedure or process is 100% safe with no risks.

Physical side effects of abortion, like heavy to extreme bleeding, even hemorrhage, incomplete abortion and infection, and even uterine rupture, are not uncommon.

Women also report difficult emotional side effects like depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, or ideation, eating disorders, alcohol or substance abuse, numbness, fear, and relational stress.

At the Cline Center, we believe that you deserve all the information, and we want to empower you to make a well-informed choice.

True & False #5:

False: There is no support for you if you choose to keep your pregnancy

In today’s world it can be easy to feel like you will be all alone with no support as a single mom if you choose to keep your pregnancy. With the Cline Center, this is not true!
