(PJ MEDIA) – For women looking to end a pregnancy, a chemical abortion can seem like an attractive option. Rather than travel to a clinic, run a gauntlet of protestors, and subject herself to a surgical procedure, all she needs to do is pop a couple of pills in the privacy of her own home and simply expel the unwanted progeny.
“For most people, the cramping and bleeding usually starts 1-4 hours after taking the misoprostol [the second pill]. It’s normal to see large blood clots (up to the size of a lemon) or clumps of tissue when this is happening. It’s kind of like having a really heavy, crampy period, and the process is very similar to an early miscarriage,” says Planned Parenthood. “The cramping and bleeding can last for several hours. Most people finish passing the pregnancy tissue in 4-5 hours, but it may take longer. The cramping and bleeding slows down after the pregnancy tissue comes out. You may have cramping on and off for 1 or 2 more days.”
And voilà! Problem solved. The whole unfortunate episode can simply be flushed away! Hence, the procedure is also sometimes tastefully referred to as a “toilet bowl” abortion.
