A new medical study shows that the abortion pill reversal medical intervention is saving lives and giving hope to women who change their minds after taking mifepristone, the first drug in the medical abortion process.
Published in the peer-reviewed medical journal, Issues in Law and Medicine, the study shows that the use of progesterone, the hormone essential to the maintenance of a normal, healthy pregnancy, is a safe and effective way to reverse their medical abortions, according to a statement by San Diego, California-based Culture of Life Family Services.
“Women who change their minds after starting a medical abortion now have a second chance at choice,” George Delgado, one the study’s authors, was quoted as saying. “Using progesterone to reverse the effects of mifepristone is effective and does not increase the risks of birth defects.”
Delgado is the medical director of Culture of Life Family Services.
In the United States, mifepristone, a progesterone receptor blocker, is used for 30 to 40 percent of all abortions.
The study looked at 261 successful mifepristone reversals, and found that the reversal success rates were 68 percent with the high-dose oral progesterone protocol and 64 percent with the injected progesterone protocol.
