Abortion pills that you have taken have been known to cause birth defects. Your medical abortion failed as you have taken the pills late when surgical methods are needed. You should discuss the prospects of continuing with the pregnancy with your doctor and also have an anomaly scan. You may also need an amniocentesis, if you wish to continue your pregnancy.The earlier you decide, the better. Take care.

You have to find out by ultrasound if the pregnancy is viable. By 10 weeks you should have a viable pregnancy with cardiac activity. If yes,you can continue the pregnancy. But it will have to be monitored closely . Any chance of malformations,the pregnancy will have to be terminated. You should discuss options with your doctor.
