Unethical Study Manufactures Results

The truth has been twisted to such a degree
it more resembles a pretzel than a research finding.

Abortion-Pill-Rescue

This is a hard hitting expose of a study done on abortion pill reversal.  It’s authored by Bradley Mattes of Life Issues Institute and uncovers the pro-abortion agenda of the researchers.

The chemical abortion pill is growing in use and may soon outpace surgical abortion. This evolving trend demonstrates why the Abortion Pill Reversal network of medical professionals is vital to saving babies and protecting their mothers.

A so-called study was underway to examine the effectiveness of progesterone to reverse a chemical abortion when a mother changed her mind. However, critics say its unspoken goal was to actually undermine the progesterone protocol.

But the process backfired and further underscored the need for added protections for women subjected to chemical abortion.

The study’s credibility was suspect from the start and many expected its conclusion would result in a preconceived notion that abortion pill reversal is “junk science.” Consider the bias of its authors. All five are dedicated pro-abortion advocates. Mitchell D. Creinin, is an abortionist and paid consultant with Danco Laboratories which manufactures mifepristone, the chemical abortion pill. Laura Dalton is an employee of Planned Parenthood of Arizona. Collectively, Planned Parenthood is the largest chain of abortion facilities in America and the most aggressive lobbyist for extreme pro-abortion laws on both the federal and state level. Melody Y. Hou, Rachel Steward, and Melissa J. Chen have all been or are currently abortionists.

The study’s goal was to enroll 40 pregnant women who had previously decided to have a surgical abortion. After consenting to a chemical abortion and receiving the mifepristone, the women were selected randomly to be given progesterone to attempt reversing the chemical abortion or a placebo. Those whose babies were still alive after two weeks were promised a surgical abortion.

The purpose of this ethically bankrupt research was to determine if a drug effectively saves the lives of babies, and if so, they guarantee mothers a dead child in the end.
After 12 women had been enrolled, researchers abruptly ended the study because of serious health concerns for those participating. Three women experienced “severe hemorrhage requiring ambulance transport to hospital.” One lost enough blood to require a transfusion.

A critical distinction that most media outlets have not made or highlighted is that two of the three women who experienced medical emergencies were given the placebo – that is, the only active drug they received and were suffering from was the mifepristone chemical abortion drug. One had been given progesterone. The potential of lethal blood loss has been an ever-present concern with chemical abortion. The study’s hasty demise underscores the need for the FDA to more closely scrutinize Danco’s death drug.

Thanks to “Unplanned” Release; Rise in Calls to Abortion Pill Reversal Hotline

The following article was originally written by Christine Rouselle Catholic News Agency on Tuesday, April 9th. It is republished with her permission.

The release and success of the pro-life film “Unplanned” is being credited with an uptick in women seeking information on reversing chemical abortions.

Abortion Pill Rescue Network, run by Heartbeat International’s Option Line, has seen a recent spike in calls from women seeking to reverse their abortions since the film’s release.

Following the release of “Unplanned” in theaters on March 29, the hotline registered a 30 percent increase in calls compared to a normal weekend.

Andrea Trudden, the director of communications and marketing for Heartbeat International, told CNA that the sudden surge of interest was “definitely very interesting.”

“We do believe that [the sudden surge] was attributed to Unplanned, specifically.”

Calls to the hotline have been both from women inquiring about reversing their abortions, and from people interested in learning more about abortion pill reversal and how they can spread the word, said Trudden.

“Unplanned” tells the story of former Planned Parenthood Clinic Director Abby Johnson’s ideological transformation into a pro-life advocate.

In the film, Johnson’s own chemical abortion is featured on screen, and on-screen dialogue explains how such abortions can be reversed. A number shown on screen at the end of the film connects viewers with various resources, including the Abortion Pill Rescue Network.

The APRN was founded in 2012 and merged into Heartbeat International last year. The spike in interest following the release of “Unplanned” is part of a trend of continually rising interest.

With Heartbeat International’s involvement, a live chat feature was introduced to the APRN website. Since that addition, the group says it has seen the number of calls per month quadruple.

Trudden explained to CNA that calls to the APRN hotline have to be screened, but that women are then connected to medical professionals who can work with a caller to reverse the effects of the abortion pill.

A chemical abortion is a two-step process that involves the ingestion of two drugs: mifepristone and misoprostol. The first drug, mifepristone, effectively starves the unborn baby by blocking the effects of the hormone progesterone. The second drug, misoprostol, is taken up to two days later and induces labor.

The abortion can be reversed after a woman takes mifepristone, but before she takes misoprostol—though this must be done quickly, Trudden explained.

If an ultrasound confirms the unborn baby is still viable, the mother is given a large dose of progesterone to reverse the effects of mifepristone, with additional doses of progesterone needed throughout the first trimester.

As part of the process, APRN also refers all women to a help center for support throughout the remainder of the pregnancy.

Trudden told CNA that there’s a “64-68 percent success rate” for women seeking to reverse their chemical abortions.

A study of successfully reversed abortions indicated good health outcomes for the children, Trudden said, with no increase in birth defects and even an overall lower preterm delivery rate than the general population.

Since 2012, when the APRN was established, more than 500 babies have been born after their abortions were reversed. Trudden told CNA that there are currently 150 women expecting babies in the near future after reversing their abortions.

Chuck Kozelman, co-writer and director of “Unplanned,” called the increase in the number of women seeking to reverse their abortions “wonderful.”

“We are in a moment of heightened awareness that abortion is the termination of a human being,” Kozelman told CNA.

“Many women who have chosen abortion wish they could go back and change their decision. What we’re seeing is that many of the women who still are capable of reversing that decision are doing so, and we think it’s wonderful.”

Baby Saved By Abortion Pill Reversal Hotline; Plead for Help During Sidewalk Servants

The following is an email sent out by Dr. Monique Ruberu on April 11th. Please consider taking part in the sidewalk servants campaign that will fill the void between the ending of the Lenten 40 Days for Life Campaign to the beginning of the Fall Campaign in September.

Yesterday people were praying at Planned Parenthood and a young woman entered inside around 1 pm. She had her appointment after waiting for hours, and at approximately 4:30 she took the 1st abortion pill. She went home passing by the prayer warriors who had been fervently pleading for the life of her and her child. Upon reaching her home she was overcome with a sense of sadness and guilt. God had moved her heart.

She hadn’t taken any resources from the women out there… but she turned to Google to see if she could undo this wrong. Ans she found the abortion pill reversal hotline. We have started the process of reversal. Please pray for this mom and sweet child.

The reversal I mentioned to all of you that was done with the abortion injection is doing well PRAISE GOD!!! We had an ultrasound a few days ago and the sweet baby is growing and has a strong heartbeat!!

One of our prayer warriors was praying outside of 777 Appletree. A man wearing a septa uniform approached her and said: ” Thank you for being here!” He handed her $80.00 and said: “I know you can make good use of this money, please use it to continue this work.”

Guys Saturday is our last day of 40 days.

The official sidewalk servants sign up genius is up and running so the sidewalk servants from last year have already received the 1st request for the 1st week (week 3 of the month).

If you want to continue to help us out at least once a month, please do alert us and we will add you to the list. If you didn’t get the sign-up genius email YOU are NOT on the list and need to let us know to add you.

Here are the hours that we need to be filled for next week.

let us know if you would just like to pray on that one hour or if you would like to pray during that time every month, every week, or twice a month.
