A leftist investigative group funded by pro-abortion billionaire George Soros is trying to discredit the life-saving abortion pill reversal procedure.
This week, Open Democracy published an investigation that portrays the abortion pill reversal procedure as dangerous and unethical — even though it has saved more than 2,000 babies’ lives.
Its investigators called the Abortion Pill Reversal hotline from different countries around the world, posing as pregnant women seeking to reverse the effects of the abortion drug mifepristone and save their babies’ lives.
Though its investigators did not uncover anything other than what pro-lifers are openly saying, Open Democracy attacked the abortion pill reversal anyway, quoting pro-abortion politicians and abortion advocacy groups to “confirm” that pro-lifers are doing something dangerous and unethical.
And leftists publications covered it as if it were news. Vice, in its biased coverage of the investigation, slammed the abortion pill reversal procedure as a project of an “ultra-conservative Christian right group,” Heartbeat International.
It also quoted an abortion activist with the British abortion chain BPAS who attacked the procedure.
“Unfortunately, this is a tactic used by anti-abortion activists who harass women who attend our clinics for care,” BPAS communications director Katherine O’Brien told Vice. “Women in Merseyside and Birmingham have been subjected to this potentially dangerous misinformation already this year.”
O’Brien also said she was “surprised” that one of the abortion pill reversal doctors advised an investigator to go to the emergency room if she experienced complications from the reversal procedure.
“It’s not good enough to say ‘if you start bleeding, go to [the hospital] – especially in the middle of a pandemic,” O’Brien said. “The GMC [can] strike off clinicians if they’ve been found to be guilty of malpractice, and I think this is a very serious case.”

But that is exactly what abortion facilities tell women to do if they are experiencing complications from an abortion: go to the emergency room.
Open Democracy also quoted a pro-abortion politician in the UK who criticized the abortion pill reversal procedure.
“I am shocked that this is taking place in the UK,” Labour MP Nadia Whittome said. “Women should not be used as guinea pigs by anti-abortion activists. The hotline needs to be shut down immediately.”
Heartbeat International, which runs the hotline, suspected that abortion activists were up to something when they noticed an irregular increase in international calls recently. Jor-El Godsey, president of the organization, praised the hotline nurses for their kind, professional responses in the midst of the ruse.
“We know that our team only supplied evidence that we love and care for women as they seek to make the choice to rescue their baby from a chemical abortion,” he said. “The good news? Our team performed excellently.”
The abortion pill reversal procedure works by counteracting the abortion drug mifepristone, one of two drugs typically taken together to abort and then expel the unborn baby. Mifepristone makes the uterus inhospitable to new life by blocking the hormone progesterone. The reversal procedure involves giving the mother doses of progesterone to counteract the abortion drug. The reversal does not work after the mother takes the second drug, misoprostol, one or two days later.
Though abortion activists try to discredit procedure, research and medical experts indicate that it is safe and effective. According to Heartbeat International, more than 2,000 unborn babies have been saved from abortions as a result. The American Association of Pro-life Obstetricians and Gynecologists supports it, and 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.
“We hear from women every single day who regret taking mifepristone to end a pregnancy and desire a way to continue their pregnancies and rescue their babies,” said Christa Brown, director of medical impact at Heartbeat International. “Abortion Pill Rescue Network listens to their requests and offers women real choices even after starting a chemical abortion.”
Godsey also criticized the “duplicitous” investigators for taking up nurses’ time that could have been spent serving women who truly needed their services.
Open Democracy and others also have tried to discredit the procedure by citing a recent study by pro-abortion researchers. The study was canceled when several women experienced severe bleeding after taking the first abortion drug. Immediately, abortion activists pointed to the complications as evidence of the “dangers” of the abortion pill reversal, but the complications actually suggest that the abortion drug is what is unsafe.
According to the Catholic News Agency, Open Democracy receives donations from George Soros’s Open Society Foundations and the Ford Foundation, both of which support radical pro-abortion advocacy groups across the world.
