“I'm so glad I picked up my phone that day and looked for help, who knows what the outcome would have been? All I know is it was by the grace of God! Thank you all again for your help. I'm blessed and thankful every day. I could not imagine my life without my baby boy.” -Ashley
The pressures and stressors women are facing at the time of an unplanned pregnancy are often played on for them to believe a chemical abortion is their only choice. Women are often looking for support, a solution, and a plan for their situation. Chemical abortion is sold to them as a private option to be completed in the comfort of their own homes with sometimes even with the convenience of mail delivery. Many women are not prepared for the severity of the bleeding, the severity of the pain, or potentially seeing the body of their lifeless child. An informed decision is the best decision. Women deserve to know the truth, medical facts, receive proper medical care, and a second chance at choosing life for their unborn child. Abortion Pill Reversal empowers women with choices.
Is it too late to reverse the abortion pill?
For those seeking to reverse a chemical abortion, the goal is to start the protocol within the first 24 hours of taking the first abortion pill, mifepristone, also known as RU-486. However, there have been many successful reversals when treatment was started within 72 hours of taking the first abortion pill. Even if 72 hours have passed, it may not be too late. Initial studies of APR have shown that APR has a 64-68% success rate.
