In a heartbreaking interview, a 20-year-old mother named Natalia opened up about seeing her aborted baby’s body after taking the abortion pills at home last year.
Through tears, Natalia told Live Action that the abortion pills were not “like a heavy period” – something abortion groups frequently tell women.
“It’s actually a child,” she said.
The young woman shared her story as part of Live Action’s new “I Saw My Baby” series, a video campaign to educate people about the abortion pill and its horrific effects on mothers and unborn babies, according to CBN News.
In March 2022, Natalia said she learned that she was pregnant. About seven weeks into her pregnancy, she received the abortion pills mifepristone and misoprostol to take at home, but she did not take them right away. She said she desperately wanted her baby’s father to tell her they could make parenting work, but he didn’t. Three weeks later, she took the abortion pills.
“When it first started happening, it felt like being stabbed in the stomach,” she remembered.
Somehow, she said she made it to the toilet where she bled and eventually passed her aborted baby.
“I looked down and I saw – I saw him,” Natalia said, crying. “It wasn’t like a heavy period. It was like a baby. And I looked down and I just looked up and just, I can’t look anymore.”

Eventually, she said she flushed the toilet – “I didn’t know what I was doing, and I just remember falling to my knees” – and then spent three days in bed trying not to think about what she had just done.
Natalia is not alone. Live Action plans to release several more videos this month featuring mothers who regret taking the abortion pills.
“The abortion pill – and more specifically the abortion-inducing drug mifepristone – has led the national news for months even up to the Supreme Court, but we never actually hear about what the abortion pill does,” said Live Action founder and president Lila Rose said in a statement. “Danger. Trauma. Death.”
Right now, doctors with the Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine are challenging the FDA’s approval of mifepristone as an abortion drug, saying the federal agency put lives at risk by failing to properly study its safety under Democratic presidential administrations.
As emergency room physicians and OB-GYNs, the doctors said they have witnessed “the enormous pressure and stress caused by emergency treatment from chemical abortion [abortion drugs] gone wrong.”
First approved under the Clinton administration, mifepristone is used to abort unborn babies up to about 10 weeks of pregnancy – although some abortionists use it later. It works by blocking the hormone progesterone and basically starving the unborn baby to death. Typically, abortion groups also prescribe a second drug, misoprostol, to induce labor and expel the baby’s body.
The abortion drug is used for almost half of all abortions in the U.S., killing approximately 400,000 unborn babies every year, according to the Guttmacher Institute.
The FDA also linked mifepristone to 28 women’s deaths between 2000 and 2018. At least two more women have died since then, but the number likely is much higher.
Studies indicate abortion risks are more common than what abortion activists often claim, with about one in 17 women requiring hospital treatment.
