Mifepristone is the first pill a woman takes as part of a chemical abortion. It has no effect on the baby; it blocks progesterone from the baby so it cannot properly get nourishment from its mother’s womb.
Often women immediately regret their decision to abort their baby. They seek to reverse the process. Abortion providers falsely tell them nothing can be done or that harm will come to the baby if they try.
Women will search online and find abortionpillreversal.com, a network of doctors that will prescribe progesterone–something routinely done to help prevent miscarriages–to try to block the effects of mifepristone.
Dr. George Delgado published the first peer-reviewed article in the medical literature describing the reversal of mifepristone (RU 486) using progesterone. He then established the Abortion Pill Reversal network to connect women with providers.
