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 have more stories of successful chemical abortion reversals for you. As you know by now, hundreds of healthy babies have been saved through reversal, 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 are another two stories Planned Parenthood and abortion clinics do not want told.

Tina

Though married, college-educated, and in her mid-30s, Tina didn’t want to have her baby because of the stress of her job and the disapproval of her work associates. However, she felt extreme remorse and inability to sleep after taking the first chemical abortion pill. A doctor helped her successfully reverse the abortion using progesterone. “I thank God every day when I look at him. He is a healthy, beautiful boy! Without the option of the abortion pill reversal, he would not be here today.”

Shashana

After beginning her chemical abortion protocol, Shashana regretted her choice and successfully pursued abortion reversal treatment. She did this based on her own research, as her abortion clinic gave her no information about reversal options when she called to ask. She gave birth to a healthy boy.

These are just two more of the many stories across America, including right here in North Dakota, showing how children were given life, not death. Please pray that expectant mothers will hear this news and make the right decision.

We have yet another story of a baby who has been saved because his mother found out that chemical abortions could be reversed. There are now approximately 1,000 healthy babies across our nation who are a testament that chemical abortion reversal works! All it takes is for the mother to take progesterone – a drug safely prescribed for decades to prevent miscarriages – after the first abortion pill.

April

April started by visiting a pro-life pregnancy help center in Missouri, since she planned to keep her baby. At the center, she was confident of choosing life for her preborn child but mentioned that it might be difficult to convince her boyfriend. Sure enough, her boyfriend pressured her to have an abortion, even threatening legal action to take the child away from her if she carried full term.

April finally gave in to the immense pressure and went to Illinois to have an abortion, despite her deep feelings that it was not the right thing to do. She visited the abortion clinic, took the first of the chemical abortion pills there, and received the rest of the pills that would complete the abortion. She immediately regretted it. After doing some online searching, she found the abortion pill reversal hotline run by Heartbeat International (877-558-0333).

She was referred back to the pregnancy help center she had first visited, where they tried to give her progesterone to reverse the effects of the first pill, but found out she was allergic to peanut oil, one of the ingredients used in the progesterone treatment. In response, the clinic doctor made phone calls, drove to a more distant pharmacy, and procured the medication, despite all the prohibitive COVID-19 restrictions and risks.

April took the progesterone and now, two months later, is doing great and is carrying a healthy baby boy that is due in the fall. We praise God for his mercy and grace in this difficult situation!

This is just one of thousands of stories across America, including right here in North Dakota, showing how children were given life, not death. Please pray that expectant mothers will hear this news and make the right decision.

Hundreds of healthy babies across the nation have been saved even though their mothers started the process of a chemical abortion by taking the first pill. Planned Parenthood and abortion clinics do not want the public to know this. But we believe every mother has the right to know that she can change her mind.

Andrea and Gabriel

After becoming pregnant at age 21, Andrea found herself in a Planned Parenthood exam room, though she was less than sure this was what she wanted. 

As Andrea sat in the presence of the abortion doctor, holding the first dose of her chemical abortion pill (mifepristone), she was overcome with emotions. Her indecision grew. The abortion doctor, becoming impatient, urged Andrea to hurry. The pill would melt if she continued to sit there and it was quite expensive. More uncertainty. The irritated doctor spoke back to Andrea her own words. This wasn’t a good time for her and her boyfriend to have a baby…

Andrea took the first of two chemical abortion pills and went home. 

After 24-hours she was supposed to take the second abortion pill, misoprostol. But instead she prayed God would help her. Help her to save her baby. 

Andrea rushed to a hospital. She’d taken the first abortion pill. Could they help her? No, they told her nothing could be done. She called her Ob-Gyn and then another. Could they help her? No, they told her it was too late. Andrea frantically turned to Google—which displayed an article a chemical abortion could potentially be reversed prior to taking the second dose. Google led her to abortionpillreversal.comand their 24-hour abortion pill reversal hotline. They could help her. It wasn’t too late. 

“I thank God and I thank my doctor, an angel sent from above to save precious little lives, and to save the lives of mothers, because without [my doctor], I don’t know where I would be today. It took me a while to face what I did, but I thank God every night for the angel he has given me. 

I named my son Gabriel after the archangel in heaven, because he is a miracle, a true angel!”

This week my email is brief. I want to say thank you to Governor Burgum.

Governor Burgum has certainly done things in the past that uphold and support the pro-life and pro-family values you cherish, but this session in particular he signed House Bill 1336. As you are familiar by now, this bill strengthened North Dakota’s abortion informed consent laws so that women have access to information that a chemical abortion may be reversible if they change their mind. Governor Burgum signed the bill and Family Policy Alliance of North Dakota was proud to help support this critical legislation sponsored by Representative Dan Johnston from District 24.

A ceremonial signing for HB 1336 was held today and Family Policy Alliance of North Dakota was invited to participate (see above photo). Primary Sponsor Rep. Johnston, other co-sponsoring legislators, and allied organizations who helped make this possible are also pictured. If you have a chance, please also thank them for their involvement.

In addition to HB 1336, we want to thank Governor Burgum for his recent proclamation for prayer on behalf of those affected by flooding in our state. His willingness to issue this proclamation again underscores his compassion and love for North Dakotans, especially in times of crisis.

Please join us in thanking Governor Burgum for these two excellent actions. You can reach his office at (701) 328-2200 or by sending him a message to him through his webpage. While you are thanking him, please also ask for his support on House Bill 1546, the ban on dismemberment abortions. The bill will likely reach his desk next week for his signature. Thank you and have a blessed week.

Sincerely,

Mark Jorritsma
President and Executive Director

We have only one step left before House Bill 1336 becomes law – Governor Burgum must sign HB 1336!

Pro-life activists need to speak up now — please call Governor Burgum’s office today (701-328-2200) and ask him to sign HB 1336.

Pro-abortion activists are trying to pressure the governor into vetoing this legislation. We need to make sure pro-life voices are also heard.

 All you have to do is politely leave a message requesting that Governor Burgum sign HB 1336 into law — that’s it!

Remember, House Bill 1336 requires that a woman considering a chemical abortion be given information about how she can save her baby’s life if she changes her mind part-way into the process. Almost 70 percent of women who have changed their minds and sought immediate medical attention for an abortion-pill reversal were able to successfully deliver a healthy baby from this proven medical procedure!

Take action today by calling Governor Burgum at 701-328-2200 because women have the right to know!

 

Sincerely,

Mark Jorritsma

We have only one step left before House Bill 1336 goes to Governor Burgum for his signature— the Senate needs to pass the bill with a floor vote!

The Senate will take this floor vote very soon, so we need your help contacting your senator NOW. We have made it easy for you to urge your senator to vote in support of House Bill 1336 by sending a message through our Action Center!

As I predicted in last week’s email, the North Dakota legislature is off to a fast start after its recess. On Monday, I testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee in favor of two pro-life bills. HB 1336 would ensure that women seeking an abortion would be fully informed that chemical abortions can be reversed after taking the first of two pills. Testimony in favor of the bill was provided by many pro-life organizations and medical professionals from across North Dakota and it was particularly noteworthy that the doctors confirmed that abortion pill reversal was effective, safe for the mother, and a verified medical procedure. We want to thank Representative Dan Johnston for sponsoring this great bill!

The second bill was HB 1546. It would ban the gruesome dismemberment of live preborn children while still in their mother’s womb. There was also significant testimony in favor of this bill and we thank Representative Luke Simons for sponsoring this excellent piece of legislation. Both Representatives Johnston and Simons are graduates of our Statesmen Academy and we are so proud of the way they are integrating their faith into the policy arena by sponsoring bills such as these.

In addition to these bills, Family Policy Alliance of North Dakota took positions and testified on bills related to expanding teaching opportunities for home schoolers, providing safety information to school children, and increasing income tax credits for donations to private schools. We also conducted research on bills, talked with legislators, monitored floor votes, and created action alerts for you, our ministry partners. And all that was just on Monday and Tuesday of this week!

We thank you for your prayers, action you’ve taken such as contacting legislators, and financial support. We also greatly appreciate your prayers and messages of support you regularly provide to us on social media and in emails. Your support means the world to us and we are blessed to represent you and your biblical values.

Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you. – Deuteronomy 31:6

We still need your help! The House is scheduled to vote on House Bill 1336 this afternoonPlease contact both of your district representatives NOW and urge them to vote YES on House Bill 1336, because women have the right to know!

Dear North Dakotans,

We need your help! The House Human Services Committee is holding hearings on Monday, January 21st, on two very important pro-life issues.

They must hear from you!

  1. Chemical Abortion Reversal Information (House Bill 1336) is being sponsored by Statesmen Academy Alumni and State Representative Daniel Johnston. This bill would require that a woman considering a chemical abortion be given information about how she can save her baby’s life, if she changes her mind part-way into the process. But to reverse the process, she must get immediate medical attention. Therefore, it’s vital that a woman knows all of her options prior to having a chemical abortion. Over one-third of early-stage abortions take place with two doses of chemical abortion pills over the course of two or three days. After the first dose, over 55 percent of women who have changed their minds and sought immediate medical attention were able to successfully deliver a healthy baby. We believe all women considering chemical abortion as an option have the right to know that if they change their mind, they may have a chance to save their baby.

Please click here to urge the Human Services Committee to Vote “Do Pass” on House Bill 1336 — because women have the right to know!

  1. The Human Dismemberment Abortion Ban (House Bill 1546) is the second bill we need your help on! During an abortion procedure, if a baby is too large to remove in one piece, abortionists tear off the baby’s limbs and crush the head. It’s hard to believe North Dakota still allows dismemberment abortions in the later stages of pregnancy on a live baby. Representative Luke Simons, also a Statesmen Academy Alumni, is sponsoring this important bill that would require the baby to be euthanized prior to this procedure taking place. Dismemberment of any living human is barbaric and inhumane. It’s time for our North Dakota legislators to take a stand and ban this practice now!

Please click here to urge the Human Services Committee to take a stand and ban this procedure on living babies!

Family Policy Alliance of North Dakota is proud to stand with North Dakotans across the state and protect life and a woman’s right to know. We’ve made it easy for you to contact your legislators with just one click on issues that are important to you. Thank you so much for taking action to protect life!

Sincerely,

Mark Jorritsma
President and Executive Director
