If you’re considering abortion, it is tempting to order the pill online. It seems like the easy, cheap, and quick option. However, the online abortion pill comes with serious risks. Keep reading to learn more.

  1. Where It’s Made: the online abortion pill is made overseas in factories that aren’t FDA regulated. Therefore, the FDA has voiced safety concerns about ordering pills from third-party websites.
