Autumn Barnes initially thought the website AbortionPillReversal.com was too good to be true.

According to the website, there was a chance that her chemical abortion could be reversed and her unborn baby’s life saved.

Barnes took the chance and called the hotline listed on the website. The North Carolina woman told Fox 46 in Charlotte, North Carolina, that the phone call changed her life and saved her unborn son.

In the fall of 2014, Barnes and her boyfriend became pregnant. Faced with financial problems and a young daughter to care for, Barnes, who was eight weeks pregnant, decided to have an abortion. She went to an abortion doctor in Raleigh, who gave her the first of two chemical abortion pills.

“When I got into the truck it just kept running through my mind, I just killed my baby, I have a little girl at home, how is it fair that I just took an innocent child’s life?” Barnes said.

She searched on the internet for an answer, a hope that somehow the abortion could be reversed. Then she found AbortionPillReversal.com.

When she called the hotline, she was connected to a doctor who administered the abortion pill reversal treatments. Two days later, Barnes told the news station she went for an ultrasound and found out the good news – her baby’s heart was still beating.

On May 18, Barnes gave birth to a healthy baby boy named Walker.



“He was perfect, and he was a miracle,” Barnes said. “I was definitely given a second chance, and [Walker] was too, who knows what he’ll be when he grows up. I want to try to share our story just to let people know this is available, I did almost make a mistake.”

More than 100 babies lives have been saved through the new abortion pill reversal technology developed by Dr. George Delgado, LifeNews.com previously reported.

In an RU 486 pill-based abortion, pregnant women are given two drugs and directed to take them three days apart. The first, mifepristone, blocks the hormone progesterone from getting to the growing baby, starving it of the nutrients it needs to survive. The second drug, misoprostol, triggers uterine contractions to expel the dead baby. Women eventually complete the abortion at home and deliver a dead baby.

Dr. Delgado and Dr. Thomas Hilgers found that women who receive high doses of progesterone shortly after taking the first abortion pill can override the action of the progesterone blocker, and save the pregnancy.
