Media Release 8 December 2014
Right to Life asks why the Family Planning Association and Certifying Consultants are withholding important information from women. Those women who are in the process of having a chemical abortion are not being informed that the abortion can be prevented between the time she takes the lethal Mifepristone drug and prior to her taking the prostaglandin Misoprostol, should she change her mind.
Right to Life is delighted that there is now help for those women who have a change of heart after having taken Mifepristone to kill their child in the womb. Women seeking an abortion are legally entitled to be fully informed. Right to Life’s contention is that all women seeking an abortion, should be informed of this life saving option.
The conventional wisdom of the abortion industry is that there is no way to stop the RU-486 procedure once it is started. This, however, turns out to be false. Chemical abortions can be reversed with high doses of Progesterone and the procedure has been effective in more than 23 US states to date, including California. The San Diego-based Abortion Pill Reversal Program has also helped women in six foreign countries.
“There have been more than 50 deliveries of healthy babies with no birth defects, after the reversal protocol and more than 100 other women are pregnant with apparently normal pregnancies after successful reversals,” said Dr. George Delgado, medical director of the Abortion Pill Reversal Program. Delgado is co-author with Bay Area obstetrician Dr. Mary Davenport of a medical journal article on RU-486 reversals, “Progesterone Use to Reverse the Effects of Mifepristone,” published in The Annals of Pharmacotherapy, December 2012.
RU-486 is a murder pill used in the first nine weeks of pregnancy. RU-486, also known as Mifepristone, which is always administered in a clinic or Hospital. It blocks progesterone and the lining of the uterus breaks down causing the human embryo to die of starvation. The second drug, Misoprostol, causes uterine contractions to expel the developing child and is taken about two days later.
Women who choose medical abortion and regret it within the first two days before they take the second drug have a chance to save their baby, Dr Davenport said. The RU-486 reversal procedure has been successful in 59 percent of cases from May 2012 to June 2014, according to statistics collected by the Abortion Pill Reversal Program, headed by Delgado and nurse manager Debbie Bradel.
