More than 3,000 mothers have had the joy of holding their newborn babies in their arms thanks to the abortion pill reversal treatment.

These were mothers who desperately sought out an abortion, thinking it was their only option, and then immediately regretted their decision to end their baby’s life. Quickly, each found a doctor through the Abortion Pill Reversal hotline who provided the treatment to reverse the abortion drug and save their baby’s life.

Jor-El Godsey, president of Heartbeat International, told the Catholic News Agency this week that 2021 was a record year for the abortion pill reversal treatment. His organization runs the hotline and website that connect women to doctors who provide the life-saving treatment.

“Our statistics suggest that more than 3,000 babies were saved through successful APR starts,” he said.

With recent efforts to expand the abortion drug mifepristone in the U.S., Godsey said he expects many more women will seek out the life-saving treatment in the coming year.

“2022 holds immense promise for the pro-life world, especially in the U.S., and 2022 holds immense opportunity for Heartbeat International and the pregnancy help movement to reach and rescue more lives,” he told CNA.

Last year brought a dangerous new expansion of the abortion drug mifepristone. The Biden administration got rid of safety regulations that require the drug to be provided in-person after a medical examination. Now, abortion groups can sell the abortion drug through the mail without ever seeing or even talking to the mother.

In the fall of 2021, Google also banned Heartbeat and Live Action, another pro-life organization, from running ads promoting the abortion pill reversal treatment on its many platforms.

At the same time, however, Godsey said Heartbeat saw a growing number of mothers seeking abortion pill reversal treatments.

“The 2021 achievements at Heartbeat are all the more remarkable considering we’ve been targeted for censorship by Big Tech and misinformation campaigns by Soros-funded leftist outlets,” he said.

Godsey said he hopes for an even better year in 2022.

“The intense attacks from Big Abortion allies only highlights how vital the life-saving work of the pregnancy help movement. While Big Abortion focuses on profits, Heartbeat International will continue to help women choose life for their babies,” he said.

The abortion pill reversal 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 the American Association of Pro-Life OB-GYNs, the treatment works very similarly to a hormonal treatment that has been used for years to help prevent miscarriages.

Research indicates the treatment is safe and effective. One 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.

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