Abortion Pill Reversal: A Second Chance to Choose Life

Post Icon

In the conversation about protecting life, we often forget about chemical abortion. What is chemical abortion, and how prevalent is it?

Thankfully, lives are being saved every day as women experience immediate regret from these abortion decisions. And through Abortion Pill Reversal, they are given a second chance to choose life for their child.

But before we talk about the solution, let’s address the problem.

The Hard Realities of Chemical Abortion

Chemical abortion involves the use of two different medications, at two different times, and for two different purposes. Mifepristone is the first drug consumed orally in a chemical abortion regimen. The action of this drug is to block progesterone, the hormone needed to sustain and nurture a pregnancy. This destabilizes the pregnancy and results in the death of the unborn child. The second drug in this regimen is an off-label use of a black box warning medication, Misoprostol, to empty the uterus. Misoprostol is only FDA-approved for use in the prevention of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug-induced gastric ulcers. Sadly, chemical abortions are more common than ever, due to recent actions by the Food and Drug Administration.

The Risk and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) is currently placed on 69 out of 19,000 drugs (regardless of whether they are abortion specific or not) to require acknowledgment of the increased safety risks to ensure these do not outweigh the benefits of their usage. In the past, for example, women were required to receive an in-person physician visit before beginning an abortion. But the FDA recently lifted this precautionary classification. On January 3, 2023, the FDA elected to allow Mifepristone to be dispensed directly to the patient by a prescription from a provider through either an in-person certified pharmacy visit or by mail. The removal of this precautionary classification supersedes significant physical protections for women seeking an abortion as a result of these drugs.

Chemical abortion cases in the United States are increasing to staggering heights while women are often being placed in dangerous situations with little to no medical oversight. Current trends suggest the overall rate of abortions in our nation could include 80% of them being chemical abortions. Meanwhile, the FDA continues to proclaim these abortion drugs pose little to no risk and are safer than Tylenol. Unfortunately, the FDA reports that 5 million women have taken chemical abortion pills. And the numbers could be worse, as abortion reporting is entirely voluntary.[1]

In response to the alarming increase of chemical abortions in our country, as well as the victorious overturn of Roe v. Wade, many states have enacted pro-life laws for the protection of the mother and the unborn baby. Despite these states’ heroic and courageous efforts to protect life, chemical abortion pills are readily accessible to all states through abortion tourism and over 72 unique websites. The organizations represented through these websites share the common mission of providing abortion in areas and nations where it is prohibited by law or not easily accessible.

As we gather in our churches, may we all take hold of the mission to reach those in our congregations amid an unplanned pregnancy with non-judgmental love, care, and support.

The Second Chance

Abortion Pill Reversal (APR) is saving lives from the grips of chemical abortion. APR is a well-established, evidenced-based hormonal therapy that exists to reverse the artificial chemical process of Mifepristone abortion. APR offers a second chance to choose life by providing a woman with more bio-identical progesterone in an attempt to outcompete and reverse the effects of Mifepristone which is designed to block the progesterone. This Abortion Pill Reversal protocol is saving 64-68% of pregnancies through the use of bio-identical progesterone.

Abortion Pill Reversal help is available internationally 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, by a team of APR skilled Registered Nurses. Any woman experiencing regret after beginning a chemical abortion can receive help by calling the APR Hotline at 1-877-558-0333 or by visiting a confidential 24/7 chat. Our team at Heartbeat International is ready and on standby to actively listen to her story while offering non-judgmental compassion, care, and support. After collecting some brief medical information and an electronic consent signature, women are connected with an APR medical professional in their area to begin the APR progesterone protocol as quickly as possible.

Statistics from the Abortion Pill Rescue® Network (APRN) reveal over 5,000 lives have been saved through Abortion Pill Reversal. Over 76% of the calls received by women at the APRN are within 24 hours of having taken Mifepristone. This evidence confirms women do at times change their minds after making an abortion decision. Furthermore, most women contacting the APRN share that they never truly wanted an abortion to begin with, yet they felt there was no other choice. The pressures these women face to make an abortion decision often come from friends, family members, the baby’s father, finances, and life circumstances.

Chemical abortion today is being marketed as safe and effective, convenient, able to be completed in the privacy of your own home, less invasive, just a pill, and a solution to your problem. Women are not prepared for the amount of pain, the amount of bleeding, or the potential of seeing their baby as they undergo a self-managed or at-home abortion.

Abortion Pill Reversal is saving thousands of lives while providing a beacon of life, hope, and a second chance when all hope seems lost and the darkness has become overwhelming.

Living Out a Commitment to Life

As we reflect on the choices made in our own lives, it can motivate us to remember the grace, mercy, and forgiveness extended to us through Jesus, God’s only Son. As we gather in our churches, may we all take hold of the mission to reach those in our congregations amid an unplanned pregnancy with non-judgmental love, care, and support. We can be intentional in our conversations and attentive to the needs of others around us. We can consider starting a church pregnancy help support group to come alongside our local pregnancy help organizations in this mission.

In faithful obedience, may we live out the final words of Jesus to reach and rescue as many lives as possible for Him and impact generations for today and eternity (Matthew 28:18-20).
