Paula Lantz, USA Today: Medication abortion is safe, and a large number of studies validate this, according to Paula Lantz, an abortion policy expert at the University of Michigan. The New York Times analyzed over 100 studies spanning countries and decades examining the effectiveness of mifepristone and misoprostol and found that the “vast majority of studies report that more than 99 percent of patients who took the pills had no serious complications.”
