Medical abortion has been widely available in many countries including the USA, UK, NZ, India and China. Australian women now have the choice of how they would like to terminate a pregnancy. Of course, eligibility for this method of termination will be assessed by the medical practitioner, as not all women may have the choice, depending on medical history or weeks of gestation.

Medical termination may only be chosen if the pregnancy is less than 7 weeks from the first day of the last menstrual period. There are a few medical problems which may exclude women from making this choice and these may be discussed with the consulting doctor.
