According to Heartbeat International, more than 3,000 lives have now been saved from abortion by abortion pill reversal, with approximately 150 women starting the reversal process every month.
The abortion pill, also called a chemical abortion, is approved for use up to 70 days into a pregnancy. Abortion pill reversal is a process that works to combat the effects of the first drug of the abortion pill regimen (mifepristone) with the goal of saving the lives of preborn children whose mothers have taken the drug but regret it. Mifepristone blocks the action of the natural pregnancy hormone progesterone, which helps to nurture the growing baby and sustain the pregnancy. When mifepristone blocks progesterone, the baby is deprived of nutrients — beginning the abortion pill process meant to kill her.
Abortion pill reversal involves administering the pregnancy hormone progesterone, which has been used to help prevent miscarriage for decades, in the hopes of counteracting the effects of mifepristone. This protocol has an effectiveness rate of 64% to 68% according to a 2018 peer-reviewed study. While results are best if the process is started within 24 hours of taking the abortion pill, babies have been reportedly saved as long as 72 hours after.
The second drug of the abortion pill regimen, misoprostol, is taken 25 to 72 hours after mifepristone and causes the uterus to contract and expel the baby. If a woman takes mifepristone, but has not yet taken misoprostol and regrets her abortion decision, she can contact the Abortion Pill Rescue Network (APRN) for help.
There are currently more than 1,100 health care professionals in the Abortion Pill Rescue Network around the world.
Abortion pill reversal has been accessed by women who want to save their babies in all 50 states and 65 countries. Countless women have shared their stories about reversing their abortions, including Katianna.
Katianna immediately regretted taking the abortion pill and Googled “abortion regret.” She learned of abortion pill reversal and though she was skeptical, she called APRN and spoke with a nurse. Katianna was connected with a doctor in her area and the Heartbeat of Miami Pregnancy Center. After an ultrasound to check for a heartbeat, the abortion pill reversal process was carried out and Katianna was able to later give birth to a healthy baby girl.
“From the bottom of my heart, I want to say, ‘thank you,'” Katianna said in a video. “I’m extremely blessed.”
“If it weren’t for their help, how quick, how knowledgeable, and how effective the treatment was, I would be sad and depressed,” she said, “and my baby would not be alive.”
