A Second Chance: How the effects of the abortion pill can be safely reversed for mother and baby

What is Abortion Pill Reversal? 

Did you know that the effects of the abortion pill can be reversed after the first tablet is taken? And that this method of reversing an abortion is SAFE for both mother and baby?

To understand how this is possible, you need to firstly understand how the abortion pill works. 

What does the Abortion Pill do?

Most abortions up to 12 weeks of pregnancy are now carried out using a process commonly called the abortion pill – although two tablets are actually involved. 

The first pill is called mifepristone. This blocks the effects of a natural hormone called progesterone. This hormone is produced by the woman in order to provide the essential nutrients for the developing baby to thrive.

So when the effect of progesterone is blocked, the woman’s body no longer thinks she is pregnant, and stops providing those essential nutrients. The aim of the first pill then, is to starve the baby of nutrients, so that the baby will die. 

Then a second drug, misoprostol, is taken up to 48 hours later. This causes painful cramps to expel the baby’s body.

It is the right of every woman to REVERSE the effect of the abortion pill if she changes her mind. We need to GIVE Irish women that choice.

VIDEO: A Second Chance: why every woman deserves a chance to reverse the abortion pill.

This powerful analogy between those who survived at the Golden Gate Bridge and the women who seek a second chance by reversing the abortion pill.

Reversing the effect of the first Pill and saving baby

A straight-forward medical procedure can reverse the effect of the first pill. 

Many women, sometimes only minutes after taking the first pill, think “this was a mistake. I don’t want to harm my baby”. 

Abortion pill reversal offers women a second chance. Because the first abortion pill simply BLOCKS the effect of progesterone which nourishes the baby, there’s a safe and tested way to reverse that. 

To REVERSE the effect of that first abortion pill then, doctors give a prescription of progesterone so that the woman's body understands she is pregnant and starts sending nourishment to baby again. The effect of the first pill, mifepristone, is therefore reversed. 

This is a SAFE treatment - in fact, using progesterone has been used in this way for decades to prevent miscarriages. 

This is a very EFFECTIVE treatment:  and providers say it works up to 70% of the time, with NO harmful side-effects for either mother or baby. 

However, time is of the essence: according to abortion reversal providers: "For those seeking to reverse the effects of the abortion pill, the goal is to start the protocol within 24 hours of taking the first abortion pill, mifepristone." 

They do add that "there have been many successful reversals when treatment was started within 72 hours of taking the first abortion pill."

What do Doctors say?

Doctors across the world are now providing Abortion Pill Reversal.

Safe for mum AND baby

“The process is safe for both the mother and for her unborn child, and offers a real chance for the woman to rescue her unborn child when she has changed her mind about abortion,” says the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists. 

They point out that “Natural progesterone has been used for over 50 years in the treatment of early pregnancies who are threatening to miscarry”. 

And it’s SAFE for baby: “In the extensive medical literature on the use of progesterone in early pregnancy, there are no increased risks of any birth defects with natural progesterone”, they say. 

They also found that when abortion pill reversal was successful there “have been no increased risks of birth defects noted” for baby. 

A case series published in the peer-reviewed journal Law & Medicine found that reversing the effects of the abortion pill is successful up to 68% of the time. 

What do Women Say?



"I took the pill and I cried the whole way home. I told my sister what I had done, and that I wanted to fix it and reverse it somehow. We started looking online at what we could do and we came across a website discussing a reversal process, and it had a phone number. Everything fell into place after that and I remember hearing my son's heartbeat for the first time. I hope everyone when faced with this choice chooses life, but thankfully, if they make a mistake like mine, there's a second chance, which is the reversal process"



"Without [abortion pill reversal], I would not have my beautiful baby boy. Something told me to look online for a cure and to look for it fast. I spoke to an APR Hotline nurse, and she located the nearest doctor that could help us. My doctor prescribed me progesterone. I prayed and prayed that this would help my baby. I had morning sickness after the first day, and I had never been happier to feel morning sickness. My baby was okay and alive. I felt him moving, I was filled with joy."



If anyone out there is thinking of aborting, or possibly already took the first step that you thought you wanted to take, there is a way to fix it. Don't lose hope, don't give up on your baby’s life.
