Abortion Information to Consider

By the end of 2023, more than 60% of abortions were medical abortions: those completed using the “abortion pill” instead of a surgical procedure. The abortion pill is the common name for two medications that are given to end a pregnancy. The first pill is mifepristone (RU-486) which blocks progesterone, an essential hormone for the survival of the pregnancy. The second pill is misoprostol which causes the uterus to contract and the cervix to soften in order to pass the contents of pregnancy. Medical abortions performed up to 10-11 weeks gestation and can now be given without an office visit to see a medical provider.

Many women who swallow the first abortion pill, mifepristone, almost immediately regret their decision. Many do not  know they have an option to try to save their baby after taking that first pill. Sometimes, women and their partners may search desperately for a way to stop the abortion pill from working.

Abortion Pill Reversal (APR) is an attempt to stop the mifepristone from doing its work by adding more progesterone to the system. Mifepristone competes with progesterone at the cellular level. Over time and even in studies, 64-68% of the time the baby survives and a pregnancy can be saved with high doses of progesterone.

APRN (Abortion Pill Rescue Network), a branch of Heartbeat International, has a hotline that will likely show on a list of search engine results for someone trying to figure out how to stop a medical abortion from working. By calling the phone number or texting the line, APRN will link a woman with an APR provider. APR providers can be anyone from a primary care physician to a nurse practitioner to a radiologist. The provider must be registered with the APRN to be on the list of providers who can help women in this time of need. The hotline will text or call a provider near the client to get the reversal process started as soon as possible. The client will then have an ultrasound to confirm if the baby still has a heartbeat. Ultrasounds will be continued every one to two weeks typically through the first trimester of pregnancy to ensure the baby has a beating heart.

Amnion offers APR services including the progesterone prescription and the follow-up ultrasounds to confirm continued fetal viability. We are here to help with confidential care.
