Are these drugs safe for early abortion?

Q: I delivered a child 6 months back. Though my husband and I were using protection, but I discovered that I am pregnant again. Since our first child is so young, my husband and I have decided to abort this pregnancy. We have been advised to take Mifegest 200, 2 tablets and Cytolog 200 2 tablets after 48 hours, as I am only 5 weeks pregnant. Are there any side affects of these medicines? Are other safer drugs available in the market?
