Thank you for your question.
What you have been recommended is correct. Abortion pills contain derivatives of prostaglandins which can trigger an asthma attack. A severe attack is harder to overcome if the cause is a medicine that is inside the body and is needed to stop bleeding. It would be safer to go for surgical evacuation as there are more facilities in theatre to treat as asthma attack if it occurs.
best wishes
