Launch Abortion Pill Reversal Now!

Launch Abortion Pill Reversal Now!

Natalie* sat across from her client advocate, wrestling with her emotions. Natalie is pregnant and has had previous abortions: One
was performed in an abortion clinic. The second was an at-home pill abortion. Natalie was deeply impacted by her at-home pill
abortion. “There was so much blood…it was as if I killed someone.” Natalie did not expect to see the aftermath of her decision or carry
the heavy weight of all she saw in her bathroom. Abortion changed Natalie, and abortion is changing. As abortion moves from
doctor’s offices and clinics to pills mailed directly to a woman’s front door, more women are experiencing unwanted physical
and emotional effects from their uninformed abortion decisions.

What can a mom do if she has begun the two-step process of an at-home pill abortion? Is hope still available? YES! Abortion Pill
Reversal is real and possible. Moms and dads can receive care that could reverse the effects of the first abortion pill and save the
baby’s life if taken in a timely manner.

Help LAUNCH Abortion Pill Reversal at Pregnancy Resources!

Because of you, deliberate hope and medical intervention will soon be provided at the moment of need. Abortion Pill Reversal will
allow women to have a second chance at choice! As long as the heart is beating, there is hope.

Abortion Pill Reversal provides moms who have begun the abortion pill process the needed medication to potentially reverse the first
step of the abortion pill process and hopefully sustain her pregnancy. Ongoing ultrasounds and close monitoring will be available to
these moms during the Abortion Pill Reversal process. There will be hope for a second chance at choice for moms who regret their choice to begin the abortion pill process.

Did You Know?

Did you Know?

By Carey Eberhart, R.N. Nurse Director

  • An at-home pill abortion is not a”more natural” choice
  • Today, 54% of all abortions are pill abortions*
  • This choice can put a mom’s life at risk and ends the life of her little one

Risks** of “at-home” abortion:

  • No in-person physical exam to evaluate mom’s risks
  • No ultrasound to rule out possible ectopic (tubal) pregnancy, which can be life-threatening
  • No accurate dating of the pregnancy (abortion pills are only approved for up to 10 weeks gestation)
  • No ultrasound to rule out a possible miscarriage, which occurs in approximately 20% of pregnancies
  • No Blood typing done to determine Rh negative pregnancy status, which requires an injection to prevent complications with future pregnancies
  • No way to know exactly what is in the pills the mom receives from an online source

Her 2nd Chance at Choice…

Her 2nd Chance at Choice…

Her 2nd Chance at Choice

By Becca Mesmer, Staff R.N.

It was a Friday afternoon when Maria* arrived for her scheduled ultrasound. She was conflicted, scared, and alone. The appointment was uneventful until I asked Maria how she felt about her pregnancy. Maria immediately began to cry as she told me about her
visit to an abortion clinic two days prior. She’d been sold the abortion pills to perform an at-home abortion. Maria explained she had taken the first pill (Mifeprex) and regretted it. Afraid and wanting to stop the abortion, Maria called her abortion provider and was told it was “too late; there is no reversal.” Knowing it might not be too late, I asked if she wanted to try the abortion pill reversal protocol. Instantly Maria said yes.

An ultrasound was performed to check for viability and gestational age; the next step was to call the APR hotline. Maria was nervous to call alone, so we made the call together. We spoke with a compassionate hotline nurse who helped Maria contact a local APR provider. With tears in her eyes, Maria left PR hopeful that she might have a second chance at choosing life for her baby. That same evening Maria was able to begin taking the APR pills.

A week later, Maria came back to give me an update. She was smiling, hopeful and grateful as she excitedly thanked the nursing team for the care she had received. Maria is following the reversal protocol right now and says that she has never been so happy to complain of nausea! Soon, the Abortion Pill Reversal protocol will be available at Pregnancy Resources. Then, even more women like Maria will have a second chance at choice.
