This paper is an analysis of abortion: practiced procedure and modern methodology.

This paper looks at how abortion methods and practices have changed over time. The author discusses the abortion pill, RU-486, other non-surgical means such as Methotrexate-Misoprostol, and the costs for various types of procedures. The paper also looks at the times when it was not so easy, or legal, for women to terminate pregnancies.
“The concept of abortion has entered the twenty-first century no less of a controversial issue than it was when it entered the twentieth, for the question of its legality and morality is still hotly debated by both advocates and opposition. The methodology of abortion, however, has entered the new century surrounded by a sense of safety, sterility and sensibility unprecedented in previous years. Women of the twenty-first century, however, should not forget the fact that what is currently condensed in a handful of pills represents over a hundred years of persistence and perseverance. It is a legacy long in coming and laced with lessons learned and boundaries broken.”
