A young woman, 10 weeks pregnant and distraught after the death of her father, decided she could not cope with a pregnancy at that time. She went to her local Planned Parenthood office, which provided her with the abortion pill RU-486. She took the pill and left the office.
Later that day, she regretted her decision and went back to the Planned Parenthood office the next morning to see if she could reverse the effect of the pill. The staff there informed her that she could not–and that if she did not finish the series of pills, she could face medical complications.
Still in the waiting room, the woman Googled ‘abortion pill reversal’ on her phone and found a number to a national call center that linked her with doctors willing to help reverse the abortion. Within 45 minutes, she was in the office of Dr. Allan Sawyer, an Arizona OB-GYN, who showed her an ultrasound of her baby moving in her womb with a heartbeat. He prescribed the hormone progesterone to reverse the effects of RU-486. Now safely through the first trimester, this grateful woman’s baby is due in September.

Although this procedure is fairly new, 80 children have been saved using it; and 60 more pregnancies like the woman’s described above are ongoing due to the procedure. Lifesite News published the account of Dr. Matt Harrison, who describes how he performed the first RU-486 reversal.
Eric Metaxas writes in Breakpoint:
Dr. Sawyer cannot be written off as a fly-by-night character, either. He is the former president of the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and he has delivered more than 10,000 babies on three continents.
In testimony before a state legislative committee, he said the abortion pill works by attacking progesterone in the pregnant woman, which kills the baby in utero. This effect can be reversed if progesterone is given to her quickly.
Who could be against that? Only those who say it infringes on a woman’s “right to choose.” Except that they don’t seem so eager to guarantee the right of a woman to choose to have her baby.
