Hundreds of mothers have been seeking services to reverse their abortions and save their babies’ lives during the coronavirus crisis, according to a new report from World Magazine.
In March and April, Heartbeat International’s Abortion Pill Rescue Network helped twice as many mothers and babies as it typically does, director Christa Brown told the Christian news outlet.
“In 2019, we averaged about 51 reversal starts each month,” Brown said. “In March, there were 108, and in April there were 104.”
The abortion pill reversal process has saved hundreds of unborn babies since 2007 when Dr. Matthew Harrison successfully saved a baby’s life by reversing the effects of the abortion drug mifepristone.
As currently administered, a chemical abortion involves taking the drug mifepristone, which makes the uterus inhospitable to new life by blocking the hormone progesterone. One or two days later, a second drug, misoprostol, is taken to induce contractions and expel the unborn child.
If the woman takes the first drug and then changes her mind, there is a chance that her baby’s life can be saved. The reversal process works by giving the woman high doses of progesterone to counteract the effects of the abortion drug.
A woman who regrets taking the abortion drug must act quickly, and Brown said many are.
“Many of their calls are in the abortion business’s parking lot or right after they get home,” she told the magazine. “We’re seeing that about 80 percent of our callers [during the pandemic] actually start reversal. It used to be about 50 percent.”

Here’s more from the report:
The increased number of callers to the hotline parallels the increased use of the abortion pill under coronavirus closures and stay-at-home orders. The abortion industry has been shifting toward so-called “medical” abortions for years. The heightened financial stress on women and fears about limited access to surgical abortions during the pandemic have given the industry the perfect opportunity to push the pills—even ignoring safety measures in the process.
“The pandemic has added a lot of pressures for our clients,” Brown said. “If they haven’t lost their jobs, maybe their income has decreased … their living conditions are crowded.”
The abortion industry is using the pandemic and families’ difficult circumstances to sell more abortions via the abortion drug. Abortion activists also are pushing the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to de-regulate the abortion drugs and allow at-home abortions.
Meanwhile, a dangerous experimental program called TelAbortion is mailing abortion drugs to women in 13 states. In some cases, the women may never see a doctor in person before aborting their unborn babies. New York Daily News reports TelAbortion also saw a 30% uptick in “virtual visits” between February and March.
It is possible that some of those women may be contacting the Abortion Pill Reversal hotline afterward. Lately, Brown said, they have seen more women taking the abortion drugs without the guidance of a doctor.
“If [a woman] has an ectopic pregnancy, that can be dangerous for her,” she said.
In contrast, research indicates that the abortion pill reversal process is safe for mothers. Doctors who developed the reversal say more than 400 unborn babies have been saved from abortion as a result of the treatment. Even a prestigious Yale School of Medicine doctor told the New York Times that the treatment “makes biological sense,” and he would recommend it to his own daughter.
In 2018, the doctors who developed the process published a study demonstrating its effectiveness in saving babies’ lives. More research is on-going.
