Abortion Voluntary ending of a pregnancy, is not a method of contraception. Induced expulsion of a human embryo or fetus: Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans purposely limited population size  using a variety of methods. Hippocrates recommended Queen Anne’s lace (also known as wild  carrot) to induce abortions. In a play Aristophanes mentioned pennyroyal, a plant that contains  pulegone, a chemical that can terminate pregnancies.

Abortion Several methods of abortion are available. The most common method of first trimester abortion. Vacuum aspiration method  (vacuum suction  or  vacuum curettage),  sucks out the contents of the uterus, including the fetal tissue. Dilation and evacuation used especially for later abortions, is similar to  the vacuum aspiration method but must be done in a hospital, because  the fetus is relatively large  by the second trimester.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
