Is the abortion pill really bad for you?

I'm considering taking the abortion pill because I really don't want to have a traditional abortion and because im only about 2 weeks along. I was just wondering what the side effects were and people's experiences with the pill if they've taken it. Also, if you've had friends or know people who've taken it and what they experienced.

I think you are referring to Mifeprex (mifepristone) or RU-486 which is the only FDA approved non-surgical option for early abortion.
To answer your question, adverse reactions include potentially serious vaginal bleeding, infection and incomplete abortion.
