Although rarely sought, third-trimester abortions may be performed when the fetus has severe genetic defects or because continuing the pregnancy would be a threat to the woman's health. A controversy began in 1988 over a drug, developed in France, called RU 486, which, when taken during the first 7 weeks of pregnancy, causes the embryo to become detached from the uterus. The drug was reported to be safer and less expensive than surgical abortion. Antiabortion groups in France succeeded in temporarily halting the sale of the drug, although the government later ordered it to be made available. The use of RU 486 was supported by family- planning agencies in the United States, France, and elsewhere and by the World Health Organization and the World Congress of Gynecology and Obstetrics.
Abortions with mifepristone can cause painful cramping, nausea and bleeding that may last for several days. About one in 100 women may experience bleeding so heavy that surgery is required to stop it. These side effects and the fact that the morning after pill takes longer to terminate a pregnancy than a surgical method are downsides that may advise against not using the pill. "Most people think you take the pill and the pregnancy is gone, and nothing else is involved," said Dr. Deborah Oyer, a family doctor with Aurora Medical Services in Seattle. " Women who have gone through a spontaneous miscarriage know it doesn't feel good."
After a heart catheterization is completed, whether or not an intervention was performed, the physician will remove the catheter from the patient. Either the physician will remove the sheath in the Cath. Lab, or it will be removed by trained nursing personnel in the unit. Before removing the sheath vitals are closely monitored, sometimes as often as every 5 minutes during the pull. After the physician/nurse removes the sheath, pressure is applied just above the insertion site to help occlude the insertion site and promote hemostasis.
The second trimester abortions are called D&E, which stands for dilation and evacuation. These are preformed up to the twenty-fifth week of pregnancy, and usually take ten to twenty minutes. The way they are preformed is the woman is given absorbent dilators, which open up the cervix and absorb the fluids. After this is left in overnight the woman then is ready for the evacuation stage. The fetus is easily removed with instruments and suction.
Women who seek for abortion had to make at least two trips to see the physician. The state requires women to undergo a sonogram, and tests to receive information about allergies, medical risks, and stages of the fetus. They had to wait for 24 hours for the data and if everything looks good, they can start the abortion. For medication abortion, they have to go to 4 visits. First, they go to the clinic and seek for consultation and sonogram.
The key goal is to offer recommendations for safe and correct administration of the pharmacologic agents for anesthesia and pain management amongst breastfeeding mothers during labor, postpartum period and for lactating women during surgery.

Each of these medications is taken together with another medication, misoprostol, to induce an abortion. Before any abortion can be done, a medical professional must confirm that a woman is indeed pregnant and determine exactly how long she has been pregnant. The length of a pregnancy is usually measured by the number of days that have passed since the first day of the woman's last menstrual period. Medical abortions can be performed as early as a pregnancy can be confirmed. In fact, “the shorter the time... ... middle of paper ... ... J.
For years many have debated abortions, and distribution of emergency contraception is steadily taken president.
