I want to share with you another story of a baby boy who was saved because his mother found out that the chemical abortion she started could be reversed. This story is told by the doctor who helped her. It is something abortion clinics do not want the public to know, but there are over 1,000 healthy babies across the nation who are a testament that abortion reversal works.

Please help us spread these stories about mothers who now have precious little ones. Only by knowing the truth and telling others can we save more children!

Juanita

Juanita had been nauseous to the verge of vomiting, and she suspected she was pregnant. And yet she wondered: should I tell my husband? They already had three children under the age of 7, and she was concerned about how another would put even more strain on their family. After all, her husband was already working extra hours to make ends meet. Her fears were confirmed by the appearance of an extra blue line on the pregnancy test. Juanita had seen a billboard from Planned Parenthood that offered assistance with unplanned pregnancies. She decided to schedule a visit. At the facility, an ultrasound confirmed that she was six-weeks pregnant.

The abortion assistant explained the procedure for a chemical abortion. She was to take a single abortion pill (RU-486 or mifepristone) and follow it the next day with four other tablets (misoprostol).The clinic staff told Juanita that the side effects of misoprostol were limited to mild cramping and bleeding. She was skeptical about how the side effects were minimized, but felt like she had to end her pregnancy. She swallowed the first pill quickly. She placed the envelope with the other four pills in her purse, which she would take the next day. A change of heart gripped Juanita almost immediately, so she told her husband as soon as she got home. Her husband had seemed excited that she was pregnant and was disappointed to learn she had gone to Planned Parenthood. Juanita felt awful. She desperately wished she could somehow turn back the clock. She called Planned Parenthood about reversing the effects of the pill she had taken. They told her there was nothing they could do. Her mood changed from regret to anguish. “Lord help me”, Juanita prayed silently. There must be a way.

She Googled “abortion reversal” and found Abortion Pill Rescue (AbortionPillReversal.com). The website offered her the assistance she was told wasn’t possible, along with a toll-free, 24-hour phone number. Juanita called, and within 20 minutes my cell phone vibrated my pocket. Kelly, one of hundreds of volunteer nurses in the Abortion Pill Reversal Network, quickly conveyed the key details of Juanita’s story, her phone number and when she’d taken the first abortion pill.

I phoned Juanita and told her that I was one of the network’s physicians. I confirmed the facts of her situation, reviewed her medical history, and asked additional questions. Then I explained the reversal process, arranged for her to obtain the medication she needed at her pharmacy, and set a time to meet with her at my office. I saw Juanita and her husband a few days later. While she had experienced some light spotting and cramping, a bedside ultrasound confirmed her baby’s heartbeat as well as fetal movement. She decided to continue prenatal care with me in my practice and she successfully delivered a healthy baby boy.

We’ve told you over the past few months that abortion reversal works, and we’ve given you real-life stories as evidence. Stories that show how pregnant mothers had a change of heart after taking the first of two chemical abortion pills. But here is an interesting fact. Since the pandemic, there has been a shift. According to the Abortion Pill Rescue Network, they have received a record number of calls for abortion reversal So what is going on?

I see some possible reasons for this uptick of interest in chemical abortion reversals.  Certain states have deemed that surgical abortions are nonessential services, so that avenue is closed to pregnant mothers, or in some cases, mothers want to limit exposure to surgical procedures and potential multiple visits to the abortion clinic. Either of those scenarios would mean chemical abortions are taking the place of otherwise planned surgical abortions and this would likely also translate into more interest in potential reversals. There may be other reasons for this reversal interest, but here is the important part: children are being saved!

These facts highlight the need for the new law Governor Burgum signed last session that required abortion doctors to provide information to women on how their chemical abortions might be reversed. That law is tied up in court right now but imagine if that was a current requirement as well. The number of preborn babies saved in North Dakota could skyrocket!

To me, all this underscores how we can never predict God’s timing or plans. He had a plan for these children, a plan for life, and through a most unlikely set of events, made it happen. Let’s hope this is the beginning of a new wave of reversals here in our state and across the nation, and let’s never stop fighting for these defenseless ones!

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

If you would like to help us continue to protect life in our state, we’d appreciate any financial support you could provide. Simply go here and you can donate a tax deductible gift to help fight for these little ones. Thank you.

Cachet

After researching the abortion pill, Cachet was convinced that taking it was the right decision. However, on her way home after taking the first pill, she was overcome with grief while in a Walmart bathroom, and went home to research reversal options. “Not following through with the abortion pill has been a tremendous blessing. My little girl is the joy of my life and I truly don’t know what I would do without her. I am so thankful God placed people in my path who were able to make sure my little angel had a chance at life.”

Rebecca

Though she convinced herself that the abortion would get rid of her problems, Rebecca soon realized that her abortion would have eternal consequences. As a result, she found a doctor who helped her get a reversal. “Every ultrasound, consultation and blood draw came out perfectly. My son grew and grew strongly. He was delivered at 8lbs 1 oz with an APGAR score of 8 and 9 (good!). He was gorgeous. He takes my breath away every day.”

Hundreds of healthy babies have been saved through chemical abortion reversal, even though their mothers took the first chemical abortion pill. We’ve been telling you about some of the countless stories of these mothers and their newborns and we have a couple more uplifting stories for you.

There are two reasons for telling you these stories. First, we want you to see proof that chemical abortions can be reversed. Second, pregnant mothers currently considering chemical abortions need to know that there is hope.

Sarah

Sarah was a 26-year-old single mother of three who discovered she was pregnant. Pressured by the baby’s father to have an abortion, she took the first chemical abortion pill of two, even though she didn’t want to. Yet Sarah changed her mind and sought medical help to stop the abortion process and save her baby. Sarah successfully received abortion pill reversal treatment [the progesterone protocol] from a licensed doctor and she gave birth to a healthy son, who she named Isaiah.

“I couldn’t look at my other three children in the face without breaking down and telling myself this baby deserves love just as much as these three in front of me,” she said.

Autumn

Autumn was a 25-year-old, unmarried woman with a young daughter and took the first abortion pill because she felt incapable of financially supporting another child. However, she quickly changed her mind and sought help from a pro-life physician who prescribed her an abortion pill reversal kit. Her son Walker was born healthy several months later.

“He was perfect, and he was a miracle,” Autumn said. “When they laid him on my chest and I heard him scream for the first time, that was. . . one of the happiest moments of my life.”

Here at Family Policy Alliance of North Dakota® we receive news on life and family issues from around the country. Many of you on our email distributions get glimpses into some of these issues, but we certainly can’t fit everything into an email or two. For that reason, let me recap some of the headlines you won’t see highlighted in the media. All the following news stories were published over a two-week period.

If that was the whole story it would be pretty depressing. Thankfully, there is good news as well. Here is a sampling of uplifting stories, some of them due directly to the work of our Family Policy Alliance affiliates in other states.

That balances things out a bit, but the situation can certainly be worrisome. That’s where we come in.

I’ve compared our organization to a guard dog in the past, and it is fitting. A guard dog has two primary functions: alert you to danger and protect you from it. That’s what we do on issues such as life, religious freedom, family values, education, and many more. We do the work combing through articles like those above, finding the more significant ones and alerting you. Then in our second guard dog role, we fight to protect you and your values on these issues here in North Dakota and on Capitol Hill.

To be your guard dog takes resources. Please consider a tax-deductible donation to our organization so that we can alert and protect your deeply held beliefs. [link to c(3) donation page] We want to shorten that list of challenges, above, and lengthen the second list of wins. You can help us do that. Thank you for your prayers and financial support.

Abortion Reversal is Real! Hundreds of healthy babies have been saved, even though their mothers took the first chemical abortion pill. There are countless stories of mothers regretting a chemical abortion as soon as they took the first pill, but the great news is that there is hope for these mothers. Here is another of those stories Planned Parenthood and abortion clinics do not want told.

Rebekah and Zechariah

Pregnant at age 17, Rebekah took the first abortion pill, but immediately regretted it, and began searching the internet for reversal options while still in the Planned Parenthood parking lot. “I’ve never felt more desperate and hurt than I did after taking that pill,” she said. “There was no other feeling, no worse of a situation I could have been in right then and there, thinking I’d made the biggest mistake of my life.”

In desperation, Rebekah went online and eventually found AbortionPillReversal.com. (1-877-558-0333). She called and was put in contact with a local doctor who prescribed the commonly-used and safe drug progesterone to help reverse the effects of the first abortion pill.

However, the story does not end there. When the abortion clinic found out in a follow-up call that she had reversed her abortion, the clinic staff were “furious” and tried to get her to complete the abortion by taking the second pill. Trying to use scare tactics, they told her she wouldn’t be successful in saving her baby and that her baby would be deformed if it survived.

The good news is that she didn’t believe their lies. Zechariah (meaning “The Lord has remembered”) was born a happy, healthy son to Rebekah. He is now beautiful five-year-old boy and more living evidence that chemical abortion reversal works. It’s hard to argue with success.

A couple weeks ago, the U.S. District Court for the District of North Dakota took steps to limit the information given to women seeking chemical abortions. The North Dakota legislature enacted the Abortion Pill Reversal Information Act earlier this year, which requires that physicians inform women that in some cases it might be possible to stop a chemical abortion once it has begun.

What does the pro-abortion lobby say about abortion pill reversal? In their court documents contesting the new law they state, “there is no credible, scientific evidence that a medication abortion can be reversed”.

I know it’s been a while, but from what I remember in my science classes, the strength of “scientific evidence” is based on its empirical strength, which is typically established by the strength of scientific control experiments and/or statistical analysis..

Interesting. Since a scientific control experiment of chemical reversal abortion would be morally unethical (giving mothers who want to keep their babies a placebo which will still result in the death their child), that brings us to statistical analysis. How does a medically documented 68% success rate sound? That sounds like pretty scientific statistical evidence to me!

Abortion Reversal is Real! Untold numbers of women change their mind about a chemical abortion after taking the first dose of pills. Here is another of those stories Planned Parenthood and abortion clinics do not want the public to know about.

Summer and Finley

After she took the first pill to abort her baby, both Summer and her boyfriend Jason were so grieved that they needed to pull their car over to the side of the road on their drive home. When Jason called Planned Parenthood to ask about reversal options, he was told that reversal was impossible and that refusing to take the second pill could cause serious birth defects in the baby. Unfortunately, this is absolutely false. The clinic not only lied to Jason and Summer, they didn’t tell them there was another option—abortion pill reversal.

“We cried out to God for forgiveness and healing,” said Summer. “We begged Him for a second chance, if only we could take it all back.” After praying, Jason searched online for someone who could help them. Eventually, Jason found a doctor that would tell them about progesterone shots—a treatment to reverse the effects of the first dose of the abortion pill.

Shortly after Christmas, Jason and Summer received a priceless gift–Baby girl Finley was born healthy without any defects. Abortion pill reversal gave them a second chance.

I’m writing with good news – and an appeal for 30 seconds of your time to bring life-giving hope to Idaho women who desperately need it.

The abortion-pill reversal bill is in the home stretch!

YOU helped make it happen in the Senate!  Now your voice is needed to help it happen in the House!

With your help, S1243 passed out of the Senate committee on a 7-2 vote and then passed the full Senate, 29-6.  Unfortunately, not one Senate Democrat voted to allow this hope to be granted to Idaho mothers.

The life-saving potential of this bill is enormous, especially when you consider that almost 50 percent of abortions in Idaho are chemical abortions.

Here’s what happens with RU-486 chemical abortions.  The abortionist gives the pregnant mom two pills:

What they don’t tell her when they are giving her the pills is that if she has a change of heart after beginning the process (as many women do), there is a safe way to potentially reverse the process and save her baby.

The LEAST we should require of abortionists is that they inform women of this potential life-saving process.

The Abortion Pill Reversal protocol uses the natural hormone progesterone to potentially to help give women the chance to save their preborn baby. It is a protocol that has already been successfully used to save hundreds of babies!

Here’s what you can do:

Please take 30 seconds to email the House State Affairs Committee and ask each member to support S1243.  You can do it with just a click at our Action Center.

Then pray for the legislators on the House State Affairs Committee and the pro-life groups, including Family Policy Alliance of Idaho, who are rallying to bring this life-saving and life-giving hope to Idaho mothers.

Yes, you can help save a life — and save a woman incredible sorrow — even after an abortion has begun.

Sincerely,

Julie Lynde
Policy Director

Dear Friend,

You are making a difference! Your voice is being heard. Thank you! Two bills of great importance to all defenders of family values saw action in the Capitol this week. They are: S1243, Abortion Pill Reversal bill, and H579, a sex education bill.

Here is an update on both of these bills:

S1243 Abortion Pill Reversal bill

On Tues. Feb. 20th, the Idaho Senate voted 29-6 (party lines) in favor of S1243. You spoke up!  The Republican Senators listened!  This bill that affords women the respect of full information is now headed to the House of Representatives.  I will let you know soon how you can help the Idaho House vote yes on this important measure to ensure women in Idaho have access to all the information that will help them make informed decisions.

H579 Sex Education in Public Schools

This bill moved so fast that we did not even have time to notify you of its hearing. This was an opportunity for our alliance to exercise its strength to collaborate to defeat this bill.

With less than a day to prepare, our national allies Alliance Defending Freedom and Family Policy Alliance reviewed H579, provided talking points, comparison charts, and helpful legal analysis of the bill.  We were able to provide information to legislators and work with them to stop H579.

Here are the high points:

Background:

H579 was the well-intentioned result of a student’s community/global solutions project for a course at Boise State University. The student’s goal with this project was to reduce teen pregnancy and thereby help others avoid the hardships of being a teen parent. Her premise was that inadequate sex education was the major contributing factor to teen pregnancy.  That inadequacy would be remedied by changing/updating Idaho sex education code. The result of her project was H579.

She and her professor presented H579.  The National Organization of Women followed up with their support. However, there were serious flaws with underpinnings and results of the bill.

Family Policy Alliance Review:

Family Policy Alliance of Idaho testified against H579.

Here are the main reasons H579 is not a good solution to the problem of teen sexual behavior.

H579 replaces these important standards with a legally meaningless reference to “the importance of families in all aspects of their children’s education…” Even worse, it actually undermines the recognition of parental rights contained in the current law.

H579 is breathtaking in its attack on the very structure that educators consider a most important variable to academic success…the family. It completely abandons the emphasis on the role of parents, the home, and the church in providing moral instruction on sex education.

Current code has it right by pointing to the importance of the school accompanying the parents and church, not the other way around.

Advocating state-wide policy with such broad implications for foundational parental rights, based on assumptions is dangerous and ill-advised.

Of course, the family has changed since the original code became law.  But the inherent value of family has not.

The Result:

H579 was sent to the amending order, which is often where a bill goes to die.  Advocates say they will rework/amend it and plan for it to resurface this year or next.

Thank You

It is only because of you that we are able to have eyes, ears, and feet at the Capitol to assess these policy issues and speak out in support of the family.

Please forward our weekly email to friends and family and consider sending a gift to help Family Policy Alliance of Idaho continue to stand in the gap for you.

Sincerely,

Julie Lynde
