Medication abortion, or medical abortion, is the safest and most effective method to end an early pregnancy with the help of abortion pills. Ever since the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approved the use of the abortion pill mifepristone for abortion, there’s been an increase in abortion access, which has improved decision-making for women’s reproductive rights. In 2023, medication abortions accounted for 63% of all abortions in the United States. The FDA-approved medication abortion procedure is available in many states across the US; however, administering these tablets to terminate a pregnancy is currently restricted in certain states. Understanding Medication Abortion Medication abortion is the process of ending an early pregnancy, a method proven to be effective for pregnancy termination with the help of abortion pills. The most common abortion pills used to terminate a pregnancy are mifepristone and misoprostol.  Most women prefer having a medication abortion instead of the traditional surgical abortion method because of how easy and convenient it is, without compromising women’s health.

The 26th of August 2018 was a gender-centric day referred to as the “Women’s Equality Day”. Perhaps one of the more days we celebrate about how and what women have achieved, and are in the process of affecting society on this specific day (although we do have women’s day!). Consequently, the day marks the 19th amendment process of the U. S Constitution, which gave women the adequate right to vote (now we know what’s different!). The history of the amendment was originally received as an adoption to the voting rights on 26th of August 1920, celebrated as a holiday until the year 1971 when a Congress leader named Rep.

Nevertheless, the process has largely... View Article

Calls are being made in demand to stop the federal funding to the country’s leading abortive service, just as they were been made in 2012, when Mick Romney attacked then President Obama on the issue of defunding State sponsored abortive services. Meanwhile he did defend himself again; just like Trump when he backed out off his claims that women seeking abortive services must be punished is some way”. Regardless, pregnancy termination has once again taken the center stage of discussion in the American presidential politics. This has been in line, following thirty years more or less. Nevertheless, this is a difficult ethical issue that connects with almost every person in the country, so it is understandable that is discussed in the political, social and legal sphere. However, abortive topics are always mentioned in the corner of the political spheres in other developed countries. So why are things different in the US? American Culture American hosts one of the most religious populations in the West and with the US history in Puritanism, their political discourse particularly holds a moral tone. However this...
