Abortion pill reversal article set for publication in peer-reviewed medical journal

Progesterone protocol offers second chance for women who change their minds after beginning the medical abortion procedure

Dr. George Delgado, the physician who is pioneering the use of the abortion reversal pill.

A new medical study looking at the use of progesterone to reverse mifepristone (RU-486) medical abortions is being published in the peer-reviewed medical journal, Issues in Law and Medicine. Women who change their minds after taking mifepristone, the first drug in the medical abortion process, now have a safe and effective way to reverse their medical abortions.

Progesterone is the hormone essential to the maintenance of a normal, healthy pregnancy. Mifepristone is a progesterone receptor blocker. In the United States, 30 to 40% of all abortions are mifepristone medical abortions.

The study, looking at 261 successful mifepristone reversals, showed that the reversal success rates were 68% with the high-dose oral progesterone protocol and 64% with the injected progesterone protocol; both were significantly better rates than the 25% survival rate if no treatment is offered. There was no increased risk of birth defects or preterm births. Progesterone has been used safely in pregnancy for over 40 years. The authors included George Delgado, M.D. and Mary Davenport, M.D., who have been studying reversing the effects of mifepristone since 2009.

Dr. Delgado commented, “Women who change their minds after starting a medical abortion now have a second chance at choice. Using progesterone to reverse the effects of mifepristone is effective and does not increase the risks of birth defects.”

One client wrote, “I just wanted to say, thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!” Another stated: “changed my entire world by helping me that night. This is the best feeling in the world and nothing else matters. Thank you.”

Women who decide to attempt the reversal of the medical abortion process now have new hope. Mifepristone reversal using progesterone is safe and effective. For more information, please visit www.abortionpillreversal.com.

    Soon to be outlawed in California? The only choice that California honors is the choice to have an abortion.

  2. If a medication [drug] has proper Federal government approval, does a State have the legal authority to ban or otherwise restrict it?

  3. No limits to the contradictions of progressive thinking. California ignores federal law at will, yet makes demands without limits on the federal government in the same breath. As an aside, Margret Sanger would roll in her grave were this study to appear in the Green Journal.

    It’s a good start, though.
