Abortion Interrupted: Doctors are Reversing Abortion Drug After Moms Change Their Minds

More than 300 women have found hope for themselves and their unborn babies after discovering the abortion pill reversal process.

The procedure is relatively new, but early studies show it is effective in saving unborn babies’ lives.

The Federalist reports the doctors who pioneered the new technology have been working on an extensive study to show its effectiveness in saving lives. The study involves about 300 patients who took the first of two abortion drugs and then underwent the reversal process.

The abortion drug mifepristone, or RU-486, works by blocking the hormone progesterone and making the womb inhospitable to the unborn baby. One or two days later, a second drug is taken to induce contractions and expel the dead baby.

About 10 years ago, Drs. George Delgado and Matthew Harrison discovered that they could counteract the first abortion drug by giving the mother injections of progesterone and potentially save the unborn baby’s life.

Later, they set up a website, www.abortionpillreversal.com, a 24-hour hotline and a network of more than 300 doctors to help women who want to reverse their abortion.

In 2012, Delgado published a paper in the “Annals of Pharmacotherapy” detailing their successes with four out of six women and their unborn babies.

Now, the abortion pill reversal team hopes to soon publish results of a more extensive study.

Here’s more from The Federalist:

A follow-up journal article by Delgado detailing the continued success of the abortion reversal protocol is expected soon. While critics denounced his initial case study, given the limited number of patients treated off-label with progesterone, this article will include more than 300 patients and report a success rate in the 60-70 percent range.

How abortion activists respond to further scientific evidence supporting the reversal protocol will be telling. Will they continue to deprive women who choose no longer to abort of information indicating that progesterone improves the chance their babies will survive? If so, it will continue to show the Left is not just anti-science but anti-choice and anti-life.

Abortion activists have been bashing the procedure as “junk science” and attacking states that want to require abortion facilities to inform women of the option. The choice to reverse their abortion and save their baby’s life is one that abortion activists don’t seem to want women to have.

Though the abortion pill reversal technology is new, early results show it appears to be safe and effective for both mother and child. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists reported in a practice bulletin that the abortion pill has not led to birth defects.

Hundreds of babies are alive and well today, and hundreds of mothers are happy that they found a way to save their babies’ lives, according to the abortion pill reversal team.

Summer is one of them. Still a teenager, Summer said she quickly regretted her abortion, and her boyfriend even called the abortion clinic to ask if there was a way to stop it. The abortion clinic told them no, but the young couple found another option online, the abortion pill reversal website. Summer was connected with a doctor who began the reversal process, and, as a result, her baby daughter, Finley, was saved.

“After searching the technician found what she was looking for and shrieked, ‘Your baby is alive! See the heartbeat?! God must be whispering  to your baby to move because we have never seen such an active 9-week old baby!’ Jason and I immediately burst into tears of joy and relief,” Summer said.

Andrea Minichini is another. Her son Gabriel is alive today because she found a doctor to perform the abortion pill reversal.

CNS reports Minichini was tearful and hesitant in the Planned Parenthood exam room when they gave her the first abortion pill. When the doctor urged her to swallow the pill, Minichini said she gave in and took it.

“I knew immediately after I swallowed the pill that I had made a bad decision,” Minichini said. “I even tried throwing up, but nothing happened.”

She said she found the Abortion Pill Reversal website after doing a search online and immediately called the hotline. They referred her to a local doctor who performed the reversal process and saved her son’s life, according to the report.

“Gabe is the light of our life, and this (pro-life) message is his purpose,” Gabriel’s father, Chris Caicedo, said.

Anyone who has taken the first abortion pill and wishes to stop the abortion is urged to immediately visit www.abortionpillreversal.com or call the Abortion Pill Reversal hotline at 877-558-0333.
