The primary aim of this study is to assess the acceptability of home-use mifepristone for termination of pregnancy among women who choose it and their providers. The investigators' secondary aims are to assess rates of follow-up, adherence, efficacy, complications, lost productivity, and to estimate the minimum proportion of women who choose home-use over clinic use of mifepristone.

A progestational and glucocorticoid hormone antagonist.

The hormone-responsive glandular layer of ENDOMETRIUM that sloughs off at each menstrual flow (decidua menstrualis) or at the termination of pregnancy. During pregnancy, the thickest part of the decidua forms the maternal portion of the PLACENTA, thus named decidua placentalis. The thin portion of the decidua covering the rest of the embryo is the decidua capsularis.
