New York AG Wrong About Abortion Pill Reversal

Pill treatments save lives while chemical abortion does the opposite.

Last week, New York Attorney General Letitia James sued various pregnancy crisis centers for promoting abortion pill reversal (or APR). The court filing claimed that centers “mislead” women. According to James, “Abortions cannot be reversed. Any treatments that claim to do so are made without scientific evidence and could be unsafe.” 

This is now a common tactic of abortion advocates. But it’s wrong. APR is safe and effective.  

The first of the two-pill chemical abortion process blocks the flow of the hormone progesterone, starving babies of needed nutrients. APR works by restoring progesterone and, thereby, nutrients. In one study, mothers who took progesterone after starting the chemical abortion process more than doubled their babies’ chance of survival. Over 4,500 babies have been estimated to be saved through abortion pill reversal. 

APR isn’t unsafe, but chemical abortion is. One in five women report an adverse event, and rates of complications are four times higher than with surgical abortion. 

APR is safe and effective. Activists like James are misleading women.
