On Wednesday, the U.S. Supreme Court granted a request from the Trump Administration to reinstate restrictions on the abortion pill (mifepristone), the second drug in a regimen used to end the life of a baby in the womb by inducing “the equivalent of an early miscarriage.” The abortion pill has been used to kill millions of babies in the womb since its introduction into the market 20 years ago.
The decision by the Court would ensure women’s health and safety by necessitating an in-person visit with a medical professional to pick up the drug. Previously, women seeking abortions could receive the pill through the mail after a telehealth visit. This case is the first the Supreme Court has taken since the addition of Justice Amy Coney Barrett on the bench.
After the decision, Susan B. Anthony List, a pro-life group, lauded the decision, telling NPR that pro-abortion advocated “sought to exploit the COVID-19 pandemic to push abortion by mail, promoting DIY abortion at home, upping the risk of serious complications.”
According to the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists (AAPLOG), “The most accurate study to date, of 42,000 women who underwent surgical or chemical abortion demonstrated a four times higher rate of serious complications from chemical abortion as compared to surgical abortion.”
Now, a new study shows that the demand for the abortion pill has skyrocketed by 27% during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The abortion pill can be reversed by a medical professional prescribing progesterone after the first pill, Mifeprex is taken. More information can be found about the reversal pill by visiting AbortionPillReversal.com or by visiting a local pro-life pregnancy center.
AAPLOG supports the use of progesterone, writing, “By giving a woman progesterone, the Mifeprex abortion can be stopped and the chances of the baby surviving increase from 25% (the survival rate without natural progesterone) to 68% (the average survival rate after giving natural progesterone). This is a significantly increased chance of the baby surviving the attempted chemical abortion after Mifeprex.”
