The largest organization of pro-life obstetricians and gynecologists in the world is working to expand access to the life-saving abortion pill reversal treatment and save babies’ lives.
Created in partnership with Heartbeat International and Live Action, the new resource explains how the treatment works and includes studies showing that it is safe and effective for both the mother and her unborn baby. The page also answers frequently asked questions and includes a video with extensive information about the abortion pill reversal (APR) treatment.
The treatment works by counteracting the abortion drug mifepristone, the first of two drugs typically taken 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 abortion pill reversal procedure does not work after the mother takes the second drug, misoprostol, one or two days later.
According to AAPLOG, the treatment works very similarly to a hormonal treatment that has been used for years to help prevent miscarriages.
Here’s more from National Review:
[Yet, pro-abortion groups] claim that telling women about APR is akin to medical malpractice. They insist, contrary to all available evidence, that APR harms pregnant women — even though doctors regularly prescribe progesterone to pregnant women with a risk of preterm birth or a history of miscarriage. Surely, progesterone wouldn’t be used as a corrective in such cases if it were dangerous for pregnant women.

Meanwhile, using progesterone for the purpose of APR has never been shown to have any safety risks. In fact, the chief study that abortion supporters cite when arguing that APR is unsafe demonstrates the exact opposite: Mifepristone poses significant risks to pregnant women, and APR treatment appears to do nothing but help.
Another study found that nearly 70 percent of women who underwent the treatment were able to reverse the effects of the abortion drug and save their babies’ lives. The study did not find any increased risks of complications or birth defects.
AAPLOG’s new outreach is happening at a critical time. Abortion drugs are being sold by the abortion industry at increasingly massive rates, and pro-lifers fear the trend will continue after the Biden administration recently began allowing abortion drugs to be sold through the mail without a woman ever seeing a medical professional in person.
The abortion pill has killed at least 24 women and 3.7 million unborn babies in the U.S. alone, while the abortion pill reversal treatment has saved more than 2,500 babies’ lives so far, according to Live Action.
However, the APR treatment also is up against a huge misinformation campaign. Abortion activists have been attacking it as unsafe despite evidence to the contrary, and Google recently banned two pro-life organizations’ ads about it.
Research and medical experts confirm that the abortion pill reversal treatment is safe and effective for both mother and baby. Thousands of mothers’ and babies’ stories are proof as well. One mother, Rebekah Buell, said her son Zechariah is alive today because of the abortion pill reversal procedure.
