Becca believed abortion was her only option. Already the mother of a toddler, she had severed an abusive relationship with the father of her children. Back living with her parents, unemployed, and finishing school, the California woman went to Planned Parenthood and took the first of the abortion pills given to her. She left with a brown paper bag and instructions for taking the second pill at home a few days later. She suddenly realized her son’s birthday was the next day and felt remorse for not choosing to give life to this other baby. When she asked for help in stopping the abortion, clinic staff told her nothing could be done and that she needed to continue with the abortion after she returned home. Becca did her own research and learned something COULD be done to stop the chemical abortion she started. Abortion Pill Reversal uses progesterone to counteract the first abortion pill. Today, Becca’s second son is an active, healthy six-year-old.

What is Abortion Pill Reversal?

A medical doctor named George Delgado pioneered Abortion Pill Reversal (APR). Progesterone, the medication used in the abortion reversal procedure, is not a new development when it comes to saving pregnancies. Women who have experienced miscarriage are frequently given progesterone with a new pregnancy to help prevent another miscarriage; that medical protocol has occurred for decades. Dr. Delgado decided, upon receiving a phone call from a woman who had taken the first abortion pill, mifepristone, to try using progesterone to help women who regret their medical abortions. That was nearly a decade ago, and in those past 10 years, nearly 900 babies have been born thanks to his wisdom and innovation.

Some call abortion pill reversal ‘fake science.’ However, the number of babies born to women who have gone through the progesterone protocol is NOT fake. Becca is among those whose child lived thanks to abortion pill reversal.

Shauna’s Story

So is Shauna. A former Marine, the young woman was pressured to abort by the father, her then-boyfriend. She gave in and went to a Colorado Planned Parenthood.

“After I took the first pill, I bawled my eyes out,” she said.

She called the clinic to seek help and received a response similar to the one told to Becca. “I asked them about my options, and I was told nothing could be done, that I should just take the second pill and get it over with,” she said.

Shauna and Becca took matters into their own hands, searching online for how to stop their abortions. They discovered abortion pill reversal, and today, both have happy, healthy sons.

APR Offered Across the Country, Including in Casper, Wyoming

From coast to coast, women who regret taking the abortion pill are learning about abortion pill reversal and the Abortion Pill Rescue Network, a hotline that puts callers in touch with doctors and pregnancy centers that can help them. An increasing number of physicians and pregnancy centers are using the progesterone protocol, helping women save their pregnancies. The protocol works, on average, 65 percent of the time. True Care in Casper, Wyoming now offers abortion pill reversal.

Our nurses, overseen by our medical director, are trained in the progesterone regime. A woman calling the Abortion Pill Rescue Network or the True Care Scheduling Line will be assessed to see if she qualifies. Chances of stopping the abortion procedure are greater if a woman hasn’t taken both abortion pills, mifepristone (mifeprex) and misoprostol. The first pill blocks progesterone receptors, the second pill causes contractions. Taking prescribed progesterone daily helps with the pregnancy’s viability, and the nurses will provide consistent ultrasounds to monitor the viability. A woman doesn’t have to be a True Care patient to receive this service.

Some people say APR will cause the baby to have some type of disability. This is also false for women who have only taken the first of the two abortion pills. As mentioned above, progesterone has been used with women who are at risk for miscarriage for decades; it’s the recommended medical procedure to help prevent miscarriage. Doctors would not use it in these cases if the protocol caused disabilities. Additionally, the babies born after Abortion Pill Reversal had no increased percentage of disabilities. There is however, an increased risk for some birth defects if a woman has taken the second abortion pill (misoprostol).
