Abortion Pill Reversal Ireland and The UK website launched

We are delighted to announce the launch of the Abortion Pill Reversal Ireland and The UK website, an initiative which seeks to assist women who regret taking the first dose of the abortion pill, and who seek information and assistance in reversing their abortion and continuing with their pregnancy.

To date, 6 babies have been rescued from abortion in Ireland and their mothers assisted in continuing with their pregnancies by abortion pill reversal and having help from supporting organisations.The Life Institute described this as "good news for women and their babies, since every abortion was a tragedy, and a tragedy which could be avoided if women were supported and offered real choices instead of being pushed towards abortion."

Now this new website - https://www.abortionpillreversal.ie - hopes to bring that information to thousands of women who currently are unaware that abortion pill reversal is available

The first pill from the abortion pill regime consists of Mifepristone which acts to block the hormone progesterone; a hormone necessary for the growth of the unborn baby. By inhibiting progesterone the placenta will detach from the uterus. The second pill, Misoprostol, taken a few days after the first pill, will cause contractions causing the uterus to remove the baby.

The abortion pill reversal provides progesterone replacement therapy within 72 hours of taking the first pill, in order to reverse its effects, and save the baby. Progesterone is completely safe, has been approved by health care professions worldwide, and has a 50-70% success rate when used in abortion pill reversal.

The purpose of the Abortion Pill Reversal website is to provide women with evidence-based facts and information on the abortion pill reversal regime, so that they know where to access these services when they require them.

The purpose of the service being described is "to help people who have regret, and every patient, no matter what their feelings are, can experience regret,” one doctor said.

Another medical expert involved recalls how he was contacted by one woman who was 9.5 weeks pregnant, had taken the first abortion pill and feeling regret, asked him if he could help her. He prescribed her with progesterone and a few weeks later received an email from her saying:

“Everything is perfect. Baby is fine. Heartbeat is perfect. I'm 11 weeks and 4 days. I'm so happy, and I just want to thank you for everything. I've never been so delighted.”

“It's just a very satisfying thing to be able to help somebody who's in that situation,” he said in response to receiving the email.

Please note that The Life Institute and The Good Counsel Network UK only provide information on abortion pill reversal. We do not counsel women or link women with medical practitioners. That is the role of Heartbeat International who can be contacted through the Abortion Pill Reversal website.
