Can I Buy the Abortion Pill Online?

Do you ever feel like your life was supposed to turn out differently? Maybe your deepest desires include living a life full of purpose and meaning through a strong career, a college degree or charitable work.

But now your surprise pregnancy feels like something that has made all of that impossible. Maybe you are stressed about how to fulfill your dreams, how to “get back on track”, with an unplanned pregnancy in Kentucky, where abortion is illegal.

But before you decide to terminate your pregnancy by taking matters into your own hands and purchasing the pill online, there are some things you should know.

All Abortion Pills Are Not the Same

Though you can buy the abortion pill online from third party sources, the FDA highly discourages it. They have strict regulations in place about who can prescribe the pill because of how strong of a medication it is.

According to the FDA, “The FDA does not recommend purchasing mifepristone outside of the Mifepristone REMS Program – e.g. buying it online or personally transporting it from a foreign country. If a person does so, they would be bypassing important safeguards specifically designed to protect their health.

Prescription medicines that are approved for use in the United States have been reviewed for safety, effectiveness, and quality by the FDA, and are subject to FDA-regulated manufacturing controls, including inspection of manufacturing facilities.”

Without the FDA regulations, abortion pills ordered online could be contaminated with harmful bacteria, or may include other ingredients that are not safe, or could be altogether fake.

The Abortion Pill Has Health Risks

Taking your health into your own hands and ordering strong medication without the approval of a doctor is never a good idea, even if it doesn’t have contaminations or expired material.

The FDA approved abortion pill is no exception because this pill series is still not safe for everyone.

There are over 200 medications that should never be taken with the abortion pill. And if you take certain types of birth control or allergies to any of the ingredients you should not take the abortion pill either.

Under normal circumstances the abortion pill carries risks, which include:

  • Incomplete abortion, which may need to be followed by surgical abortion
  • An ongoing unwanted pregnancy if the procedure doesn’t work
  • Heavy and prolonged bleeding
  • Infection
  • Fever
  • Digestive system discomfort

You Are Not Stuck

If you are considering taking the abortion pill because you feel cornered, unsure how else you will accomplish your life’s dreams, we want you to know you have alternatives. Good alternatives.

If you are not ready to be a parent, we get that. And you may already have preconceptions about adoption, but hear us out.

If you choose adoption, you will still get to continue on with your life plans. But, you will do so knowing that you already have done something super big and meaningful with your life. Placing your baby for adoption gives you the chance to change the lives of a waiting family, literally making their dreams come true. And it also gives you the chance to provide a child with a loving and nurturing environment where they could grow up to be anything that they could ever dream of. Their lives can also have immense purpose and meaning, just like yours.

There are also a ton of financial benefits to choosing adoption over abortion. So, if you are not yet sold on abortion, we would be happy to talk through this alternative and others with you as well.
