To cause a safe abortion (or miscarriage) until 12 weeks of pregnancy , a woman needs 12 tablets of artrotec.
She should put 4 pills Arthrotec under the tongue. She should not swallow the pills but let them dissolve under the tongue for at least until 30 minutes. She should spit out the inner hard tablet.
After 3 hours she should put another 4 pills under the tongue. She should again spit out the remains of the tablets after half an hours.
After 3 hours she should put another 4 pills under the tongue again for a third time. She should again spit out the remains of the tablets after half an hours.
 
Within a few hours most women will get cramps and start bleeding. Bleeding can be more than a normal menstruation and can last for 3 weeks.  After 3 weeks a woman has to do a pregnancy test to make sure the abortion was successful.
 
The woman has to go to a hospital as soon as possible to make sure she has no complication when:
1-    she has a fever for more than 24 hours,
2-    she has very heavy bleeding filling  more than 2 maximum pads per hour for 2 hours or when bleeding is like opening a water tap without pressure.
3-    in case of long lasting pain

She can say that she had a miscarriage as the symptoms and treatment are the same.
