If possible, it's best to do a medical abortion under the supervision of a physician, so that you know that everything goes well, and so that you can see someone if there are problems.
There are several ways to take pills to cause an abortion. The best is to take mifepristone by mouth, then 36 hours later to take misoprostol by mouth or vagina. After that, you'll get contraction, bleeding, and expel the pregnancy. It may take a few hours or several days. The success rate is well over 90%. It can be done up to 9 weeks of pregnancy.
The pills usually require a prescription. If you're not able to get a prescription, you can get them online through here https://www.womenonweb.org/en/i-need-an-abortion. They will ask some questions, and then send the pills and instructions.
