Abortion pill reversal hotline receives record number of calls during COVID-19

During March, the Abortion Pill Rescue Network saw a record number of calls for abortion pill reversals. Andrea Trudden, director of communications for Heartbeat International, which runs the Abortion Pill Rescue Network, told Live Action News that 105 mothers started the process of halting their chemical abortions after calling the hotline. Trudden said, “We are now seeing over 80% of our callers start the reversal process.”

The abortion pill reversal method is available to mothers who begin the abortion pill regimen and regret their decision. Because chemical abortion is a two-step procedure, it may be possible to stop the death of the preborn baby and continue the pregnancy if the mother receives appropriate medical intervention. In a typical chemical abortion, a mother takes mifepristone (RU-486), which blocks the hormone progesterone. This gradually causes the baby to die through lack of oxygen and nutrients as the withdrawal of progesterone causes the lining of the uterus to break down. One to two days later, the mother then takes another pill, misoprostol, to induce contractions and bleeding to expel the baby’s body.

If a mother who changes her mind after beginning a chemical abortion receives supplemental progesterone before taking the second pill, there is a chance to save the baby’s life and continue with a normal pregnancy (note: this chance is not a guarantee). The abortion industry has attempted to discredit the abortion pill reversal process and is using the pandemic to push for expanding dangerous telemedicine abortions.
