Did you know that the effects of the abortion pill can be reversed for women and their babies? Many women have reported changing their minds about the termination of their preborn child after ingesting the first dose of the abortion pill. Thanks to pioneering research by Dr. George Delgado and his colleagues, the abortion reversal success rate is high and rising.
In an older article, we explained how the chemical abortion process works. It’s important to understand the process in order to understand how it can be reversed:
- RU-486 (the “abortion pill”) is actually two pills, taken approximately 48 hours apart. It is not the same thing as the “morning-after pill,” for which it is commonly mistaken. RU-486 is a chemical abortion, also called a medicated abortion, meaning that its purpose is to non-surgically terminate. There is no preventative factor, so to speak, involved, as there is with the morning-after pill (which can be an abortifacient); RU-486 is solely an abortion drug with no contraceptive purposes.
- The first pill is taken at the clinic, while the second is taken by the woman on her own. The first pill causes the death of the child, while the second causes the deceased child to be expelled from the woman’s body.
- The first pill is called mifepristone. For simplicity, we will call this “M1” from here on out. It is like a key that fits into a woman’s progesterone receptors – which are kind of like the corresponding locks. However, M1 is not progesterone. M1 binds with progesterone receptors (twice as well as progesterone!) so that progesterone can’t do its job, which is to help nourish the growing human embryo and supply it with oxygen. The ensuing lack of food and oxygen is what causes death.
- The second pill is called misoprostol, which we will call “M2.” The function of this drug is to expel the baby’s body from the mother’s womb, effectively concluding the abortion, barring any complications (for example, if the M2 doesn’t do its job and the baby is not expelled, women can die, and have died, from sepsis).
Dr. Delgado developed a protocol of progesterone therapy that, when given early enough, has saved many lives. As explained above, the first dose of the abortion pill essentially plugs progesterone receptors, robbing the baby of what it needs to grow. Dr. Delgado’s protocol involves giving the woman’s body a series of progesterone therapies to halt this process. If a doctor can administer this protocol in time, there is a good chance that her baby will survive the abortion attempt.
More doctors are learning how to reverse the abortion pill to ensure that women across the world will have access to a knowledgeable expert in their time of need. The American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians & Gynecologists will co-sponsor a press conference in February with Drs. Delgado, Harrison, and Davenport — all key players in this effort. Mothers who have gone through the process will also be present with their children who were saved thanks to the development. The press conference will take place on Monday, February 23, from 9 a.m. until Noon. More information is forthcoming.
