//Less than 1% of women getting a medication-induced abortion at Planned Parenthood had a serious side effect or a failed abortion, according to a new study.//

//”This continues to show that medical abortion is a very, very safe option for women,” said Dr. Debra Stulberg, who studies disparities in reproductive health at the University of Chicago and wasn’t involved in the new study. “That’s really the take-home point.”//

//The medication regimen used by Planned Parenthood – and many other abortion providers – is slightly different than the US Food and Drug Administration-approved drug course because it includes lower doses of mifepristone and at-home use of misoprostol.//
