Methods: Double blinded, randomized controlled trial with 1:1 allocation of mifepristone or placebo at initiation of induction of labor for fetal demise 20 weeks estimated gestational age or greater.

Expected outcomes: The addition of a progesterone receptor modulator will expedite time to delivery of the fetus and ultimately improve the experience associated with induction of labor for fetal demise.
