In 2014, a woman known as Jen walked into Assure Pregnancy Clinic in California afraid and confused. Jen was a married college student, with a toddler at home, and pregnant with her second child. She didn’t think she could handle having another little one home and decided to pay a visit to Planned Parenthood.

The workers at Planned Parenthood showed her a blurry picture of her baby and then gave her the first of two doses involved in the deadly RU-486 regimen, Mifepristone.

However, immediately after taking the pill, Jen was filled with regret.

She said she was consumed with thoughts about the heart she was silencing; and decided to seek help in hopes that there was some way she could reverse the effects of the pill. She first asked Planned Parenthood what her options were and they said that a fetal deformity was all but guaranteed if she chose to continue the pregnancy. But then Jen spoke with a staff nurse named Susan Liptak at Assure Pregnancy Clinic who gave her some hope. Liptak gave Jen a free ultrasound and, miraculously, it revealed that her baby was seven weeks, three days old, with a heartbeat of 153.

According to Pregnancy Help News, Liptak called Culture of Life Family Services, which launched AbortionPillReversal.com and has grown a network of 226 pro-life OB-GYNs. The pro-life doctors save lives by administering an early dose of supplemental progesterone to block the effects of Mifepristone, and follow up with treatments to prevent the unwanted abortion. Since 2012, the website has seen 77 children born after mothers changed their mind about abortion.

Debbie Bradel BSN PHN, Abortion Pill Reversal Coordinator said, “In those 77 births, every woman has said, ‘I don’t know what I would have done without you. I can’t believe I did this, and now I have this miracle baby. Look at him or her. It’s a very positive experience, and many go on to be very pro-life advocates. One woman in particular spoke in front of the 50,000 people at the Walk for Life West Coast just this last Saturday.”

Remarkably, Liptak was able to get in touch with a local doctor who saw Jen and started life-saving treatment that very day. Liptak said, “We always rejoice when someone changes their mind about getting an abortion. But when someone has actually started the process, this was like God was saying, ‘You guys are doing what you’re supposed to be doing.’” God just had his hand on the whole thing. It was just amazing.”

On Dec. 20, 2014, Jen gave birth to a perfectly healthy baby boy at seven pounds, two ounces. Jen concluded, “There is help out there for women who are confused. There is a new light in my home that brings a smile to everyone in my family. And I would not change it for the world.”

As LifeNews previously reported, in the past the dangerous RU-486 regimen and Planned Parenthood’s negligence has cause women to die from chemical abortions. In fact, last year contrary to Food and Drug Administration protocols, Planned Parenthood distributed 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.

Furthermore, the organization sends women home to complete the chemical abortion themselves without a physician present. Planned Parenthood’s instructions have directly led to the deaths of women from mifepristone, another name for the RU 486 abortion pill. Planned Parenthood had been telling women to use the abortion drug vaginally even though the FDA indicated oral use is safer for women. It wasn’t until four California women all died within a week of using the abortion drug they received from Planned Parenthood abortion businesses that it changed its policy to conform to the FDA protocol.
