In the United States, 20-25% of all abortions are chemical abortions, which means they use the dangerous combination of drugs found in the RU-486 regimen. As LifeNews previously reported, the dangerous concoction has claimed the lives of two million unborn children in the United States since its approval in 2000.
Additionally, in 2011, an FDA report revealed that 14 women have died from using the mifepristone drug while 2,207 women have been injured. The drug is so dangerous to women that the makers of RU-486 and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration have both acknowledged that it poses serious health risks for women.
According to the 2011 report, of the women experiencing medical problems from the abortion drug, 612 women required hospitalizations, 339 experienced blood loss significant enough to require a transfusion, 256 experienced infections and 48 women experienced what the FDA categorized as “severe infections.”
In a new video from Facing Life Head On, Dr. George Delgado explains that he created the RU-486 abortion reversal kit to help women who’ve changed their mind about abortion even after they’ve already taken the first part of the RU-486 drug. He also shares how he felt when he received his first call from a woman asking him to try and reverse the effects of the abortion pill.
He said, “It was a combination of elation and increased curiosity and just gratefulness. Early on, we didn’t know if this was going to work. It was doing whatever we could to help this woman who was so desperate and wanted help. And to help her unborn baby and save that life.”
Remarkably, the woman’s baby survived and that’s what inspired him to launch AbortionPillReversal.com. (Her story story begins in the video at about 12:30).
Debbie Bradle, the nurse manager for the project, explained that more and more women are using the pill reversal kit. She said, “…May 2012 is when we put up the website: AbortionPillReversal.com. Those first few months, I think we only got twenty calls from May-December and then they’ve been steadily increasing ever since. We’re at about two calls a day now.”
In the past, women have died at Planned Parenthood after taking RU-486 because they distributed the abortion-inducing drugs to women without requiring an in-person visit, up until two weeks beyond the prescribed 49 days from their last menstrual cycle. In fact, it wasn’t until four California women died within a week of using the abortion drug they received from Planned Parenthood that they changed its policy to conform to the FDA protocol. Initially, Planned Parenthood had been telling women to use the abortion drug vaginally even though the FDA indicated oral use is safer for women.
