Guttmacher Institute

For the first time, a majority of women in the U.S. are now choosing medical abortions, using drugs to terminate pregnancy, rather than invasive surgical abortions. Janet Cathey, M.D. an obstetrician/gynecologist provider at Planned Parenthood Great Plains Little Rock explains the benefits as well as risks.

The following report contains medical details that may be too sensitive for some listeners.

Correction: We report that both Planned Parenthood Great Plains clinics in Arkansas provide medical abortions. Only the Little Rock Clinic dispenses prescription abortion pills. The Rogers clinic does not.
