What is your question? If you are hoping to use it as a single drug to induce abortion it is not very effective It is more effective and safer in combination with mifepristone. I would suggest locating a planned parenthood in your area. They provide services on a sliding scale basis.

If for whatever reason you cannot get to a Dr and must do this on your own there are excellent and safe instructions on the website It details the dosing. The protocol can be repeated in 3 days. It is important to note that it is only 90 % effective and that 15-20 % of all pregnancies end in miscarriage on their own. I hope this helps.
