Medication Abortion Reversal
It is a fact that women often regret an abortion, sometimes immediately following the procedure. But for women undergoing the medication/medical/chemical abortion using the RU486 method, there is hope! The Culture of Life Family Services offers a website abortionpillreversal.com that has a nurse on call 24/7, a toll-free telephone number (877) 558-0333, and a network of 200 participating physicians around the country trained to effectively reverse the abortion in most cases. The RU486 medical abortion procedure is a two-day regimen used to terminate early pregnancies by blocking the hormone progesterone needed to sustain pregnancy. A second drug, misoprostol stimulates uterine contraction to expel the dead baby. 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. The reversal procedure has been successful in 59% of cases from May 2012 to June 2014. Since RU486 was approved by the Federal Food & Drug Administration in 2000, the number of medical abortions account for about 23% of all abortions. There are about 200,000 RU486 abortions in the U.S. each year.
