State Leads the Way With Pill That Can Reverse Abortions
If someone decides to abort their baby, only to realize after the fact that they’ve made a horrible mistake, there is typically nothing that can be done.
If the abortion method was medicinal, however, there is a product that can reverse the abortion process within 24 hours of the the horrible procedure abortion.
Now, pro-life politicians in Idaho are fighting to ensure their residents are aware of this option before they go through with this life-altering decision.
Idaho’s Senate State Affairs introduced a measure Monday that would require doctors to inform those seeking a medicinal abortion that there is an abortion-reversal pill that can reverse the abortion if it’s taken in the middle of the three-pill abortion process, The Daily Caller reported.
“Our goal is to start the reversal treatment within the first 24 hours of taking the abortion pill, mifepristone, also known as RU-486. However, we have had many successful reversals when treatment was started within 72 hours of taking the abortion pill,” the Abortion Pill Reversal website reports.
The reversal medication, progesterone, is a natural hormone that in large doses works to potentially counter mifepristone, stopping the killing before the process is completed.
“Progesterone is the natural hormone in a woman’s body that is necessary to nurture and sustain a pregnancy,” the Abortion Pill Reversal’s website noted.
“Mifepristone blocks progesterone’s actions by binding to progesterone receptors in the uterus and the placenta. By giving extra progesterone, we hope to outnumber and outcompete the mifepristone in order to reverse the effects of mifepristone,” the site continued.
The success rate of the Abortion Pill Reversal’s group is currently about 55 percent, although they hope to improve that number in the future.
The Idaho bill would also require woman to be given a list of providers who offer information on medicinal abortion interventions or reversals.
According to The Daily Caller, Arizona passed a law like the one Idaho is considering in 2015.
However, Planned Parenthood sued, and the law was repealed.
It’s hard not to ask: why?
Why would anyone not be in favor of educating and informing women about all of their options during a pregnancy? Isn’t that what Planned Parenthood claims to stand for?
The fact of the matter is that Planned Parenthood doesn’t care about women — they care about their own agenda and about the money they rake in every single day through abortions.
Should this law be passed, it would be a massive step in the right direction. It’s not where we need to be, but it’s definitely a start.
