Behold, children are a gift of the Lord, The fruit of the womb is a reward. (Psalm 127:3)
Last year, Andrea Minichini sat in a Planned Parenthood exam room in New Jersey. She didn’t really want an abortion, but the doctor told her that the pill she was holding was expensive and would melt. So, she swallowed it and went home with a second pill she was to take 24 hours later.
Andrea’s situation is not unique, approximately 200,000 medical abortions are performed annually in the USA — almost 20% of all abortions. Medical abortions, you see, are actually performed during early pregnancy using two pills, the first is called RU-486 (mifepristone or Mifeprex), which blocks the hormone progesterone and cuts off the nutritional supply to the pregnancy, ending in the unborn baby’s death. Then, a day or two later the mother takes a second pill, misoprostol (Cytotec), which causes uterine contractions and expels the pregnancy followed by nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, hemorrhage, and intense pain lasting two to four weeks.
Now, the good news.
Andrea started to bleed and had slight cramping. She thought it was too late. Then she Googled a story about a woman in California who had a child after her medical abortion was reversed. Andrea called a 24-hour hotline (877-558-0333), and the nurse connected her to a pro-life doctor in Clark, New Jersey.
The doctor gave her progesterone injections to counteract the mifepristone, and monitored her throughout the pregnancy. Gabriel David was born Dec. 31, 2014, two days before his due date and weighing in at a healthy 8 pounds, 9 ounces.
Ms. Minichini’s son is one of 78 babies born since the first abortion pill reversal was performed in 2007. Another 49 women are still pregnant with babies saved from medical abortion. The procedure has been documented in the Annals of Pharmacotherapy.
An unplanned pregnancy can be scary and many women make decisions when they are terrified and stressed. After taking time to think about it many women would like to change their minds, but think they can’t. And nobody at Planned Parenthood is telling them.
