Abortion is the ending of pregnancy by removing a fetus or embryo from the womb before it can survive on its own. An abortion which occurs spontaneously is also known as a miscarriage. An abortion may be caused purposely and is then called an induced abortion. The word abortion is often used to mean only induced abortions. A similar procedure after the fetus can possibly survive on its own is known by a number of names including "late termination of pregnancy", "postviability abortion", "late term abortion", or simply "abortion".Modern methods use medication or surgery for abortions. The drugs mifepristone and prostaglandin are as good as surgery during the first trimester.
