In North Carolina, Dr. Matthew Harrison has helped over 100 women successfully use an abortion pill reversal kit he created.
He said, “We’re looking at about 120-130 women right now who have babies that are surviving and doing well and it looks like we have about a 60 percent success rate, which is much better than if you do nothing. We’re hoping that this gives a woman a choice when she thinks she made a mistake. I want to save the baby and do whatever I can to help, and this gives an immediate choice to her.”
According to FOX 46 News, the kit was designed by redFONT Marketing Group, a Charlotte advertising and public relations agency. Dr. Harrison told the news station that the treatment is a series of progesterone shots that can be taken an estimated 72 hours after the abortion.
Harrison said, “Those shots consist of one shot a day for three days, and then a shot every other day for a total of two weeks, and then twice a week up until the end of the first trimester which is 13 weeks along.”

He added, “The way the abortion pill works is it essentially starves the baby by blocking the natural hormone that’s in the woman’s body. So if that hormone is blocked, the baby can’t survive. What progesterone does, the treatment we give her, is it puts extra hormone into her system, the natural hormone that’s already in her system, and it floods her system with progesterone so the abortion pill doesn’t work.”
In New York, Gipsy Salcedo said her 3-month-old son Nicholas wouldn’t be here today if it weren’t for Dr. Harrison’s reversal kit. In a phone interview, Salcedo said her doctors told her that she was infertile. However, one day she found out she was pregnant; and that she’d been given an abortion pill she accidently signed off on.
She said, “The nurse came in and said it taken care of. I said well what do you mean? And she’s like well it’s gonna terminate your pregnancy, you’re gonna have to make Motrin, it’s gonna relieve the pain, I was like what do you mean the pain? I’m pro life! You told me I couldn’t even have kids why would you think I wouldn’t want my child?”
After taking the deadly pill, Salcedo and her boyfriend went home crying and began looking for ways to reverse the effects of the abortion pill. She said, “We finally found one clinic in New York City that had the treatment. She gave me a progesterone shot and then gave me a progesterone capsule. She saw me every week to see how the baby was.”
Now her son Nicholas is a healthy baby. She said, “I know some people would be a little scared of what may happen because those are hormones going into your body, and the doctor told me this isn’t 100 percent, that this is more experimental than anything else, and I’m glad that I took it, cause I wouldn’t have [Nicholas] now.”
Dr. Harrison concluded, “It’s exciting, I don’t see myself as any kind of a genius at all for doing this. I did research at Johns Hopkins, Duke, and Medical College of Virginia where I went to medical school, and probably just that basic science research just helped me to remember how protein receptors work, and how we can reverse this.”
Currently, in the United States, more than 200 doctors have endorsed the abortion pill reversal kit and have signed on to use it, but Dr. Harrison’s goal is to have it on every medical center in every major city.
