Abortion Pill Reversal is Safe and Saving Babies From Abortions

As the girl’s car neared the abortion provider’s office, a woman on the sidewalk called out a greeting. The driver braked and responded. He was obviously angry. She told the other woman, “I just want an ultrasound.”

She went on to say that the day before, she had received a dose of mifepristone – the first drug administered in a two-step chemical abortion – and regretted it almost immediately. He asked the staff if anything could be done to stop the abortion, and they said no.

“You have to go through this,” he was told. “Just take the second pill.”

Determined to do whatever she could to save her son’s life, the next day, she drove to another abortion provider’s office — to get an ultrasound and see if her son was still alive. There he met the woman on the sidewalk.

“I can help,” the woman told him. She tells him about the abortion pill coming back, which requires high doses of progesterone to counteract the mifepristone.

Two weeks ago. Since taking progesterone, the young woman has had three ultrasounds — all showing that her unborn baby is alive and kicking (literally).

The woman he encountered on the sidewalk was a volunteer with Sidewalk Advocates for Life, the organization I founded in 2014 for exactly this type of outreach: a loving, peaceful presence on the sidewalk outside abortion sites, providing women of life support. resources that abortion providers won’t — resources that help them understand that, regardless of the challenging situation they face, they can choose life for their babies.

It’s not complicated, and it works. Since 2014, our sidewalk advocates have served more than 21,000 women — and helped save more than 21,000 babies from abortion.

We help women see that they really do have a choice. They don’t have to have an abortion. There are financial, health, vocational, and other resources in their communities — the resources they need to improve their lives and to protect the lives of their babies.

And it is precisely this type of choice that some states are working to eliminate. California is the latest — and perhaps that’s to be expected. The Golden State has pulled any number of stunts to promote abortion access.

Remember the Reproductive FACT Act, which aimed to force pregnancy assistance organizations to advertise local abortion providers? (It was struck down by the US Supreme Court.) Or when judges ruled against California officials who tried to force churches to provide health care coverage for abortion in violation of the right to religious freedom?

So it was no surprise when, on September 21, California Attorney General Rob Bonta accused Heartbeat International and RealOptions Obria of violating the state’s law against deceptive business practices. What fraudulent business practices are these organizations accused of?

Sharing the good news about abortion pill reversal — the good news is that if a woman regrets taking the first of a two-pill chemical abortion regimen, there is a very real possibility that appropriate treatment could save her unborn child’s life. unborn baby.

Women trying a chemical abortion first take mifepristone, which blocks the hormone progesterone, which is important for pregnancy. A second drug, misoprostol, is taken 24 to 48 hours later, which causes the uterus to contract and expel the life inside.

Reversal of the abortion pill is possible if, before taking that second pill, a woman receives a high dose of progesterone. The reversal of the abortion pill is based on science. It gives pregnant women options: If they regret taking the first pill, they have a chance to act on their change of heart.

Earlier this year, Colorado banned the return of the abortion pill. In Kansas, Planned Parenthood is challenging a law that requires health care providers to tell patients that chemical abortions are reversible. Now, California says Heartbeat International and RealOptions Obria know there is no evidence showing the reversal of the abortion pill works, is safe, or effective, but they continue to promote it anyway.

The truth is, more than 4,000 babies were born after the abortion pill was returned to their mothers. A few months from now, a baby will be born in California to the woman, desperate for help, who talks to a sidewalk advocate who shares with her the good news of returning the abortion pill to her.

If abortion supporters are all about women’s choice, why do they want to eliminate this one? If it’s “her body, her choice,” why do states like Colorado and California want to prevent her from learning about all the options open to her?

Abortion is not the only option. The abortion pill reversal is safe and effective — and it works. To prevent a woman from hearing about it steer her in one direction only: the nearest abortion provider.

So much for pro-choice.
