Newsweek opinion: Abortion reversal should be a woman’s right

Rebekah, who chose abortion reversal for her son Zechariah.

In an opinion piece published by Newsweek, Jay Hobbs explains how political forces in California are stepping in-between women and the medical professional who want to care for them when these women seek abortion reversal. After a 17-month audit, California’s powerful Board of Registered Nursing approved a program that would have educated nurses about how to provide abortion reversal to pregnant mothers. However, a month after the approval, the program was suddenly put on a demand to remove the information within days.

Hobbs wrote:

The results on the ground have been significant, with over 300 mothers successfully rescuing their children from abortion through the new medical intervention.

Heartbeat International’s president, Jor-El Godsey, noted that the board’s sudden reversal directly undermines a woman’s ability to “choose” the outcome of her pregnancy—something pro-choice advocates claim to support.

“To oppose Abortion Pill Reversal is not only to deny the science and reality that there are children living today because of it, but it’s to materially keep a woman from even so much as knowing she has the option to potentially stop a chemical abortion once it has begun. This is the abortion lobby taking choices away from women.” …

“[T]his is a direct effort to steal a mother’s choice right out from under her.”

What’s clear is that, in this instance, playing politics amounts to playing with the lives of babies like Finley, Zechariah, and Cruz. Their mothers’ futures hang in the balance as well.
