Pro-Life Doctor Succeeds in Reversing Abortion Pill

Published on

The advancements in science and medical technology have proven to be invaluable gifts to the pro-life movement on numerous occasions. Doctors are now able to routinely deliver premature babies at earlier and earlier stages of development. Innovations in sonogram imaging have provided a window to the womb, enabling expectant mothers to see their unborn children face to face. Furthermore, we are now able to hear the unborn baby’s tiny heartbeat.

These glimpses at the humanity of the unborn child have inspired a significant number of mothers to reject abortion and choose life. However, until now, there has been little hope that the unborn child would survive once a pregnant woman has selected a chemically-induced abortion.

A novel medical procedure is now saving lives in a previously unanticipated manner. Dr. George Delgado, medical director at the Culture of Life Family Health Care in San Diego, California, has been instrumental in developing a technique to reverse the previously inevitable fatal effect of the RU-486 abortion pill.

Dr. Delgado’s narrative commenced with a telephone call from a friend in El Paso, Texas, who informed him of a woman who had taken the abortion pill but regretted her decision immediately.

At the 2015 American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists (AAPLOG) conference, Dr. Delgado informed attendees that he had been considering his years of experience with progesterone and how he had previously used it to try to prevent miscarriage. The protocol calls for taking the injectable progesterone as soon as possible after taking the mifepristone.

Dr. Mary Davenport, another pro-life physician at the vanguard of this novel approach, elucidated the pharmacological composition of chemical abortions, which entail the administration of two drugs.

Medical abortion is a procedure that is performed in the early stages of pregnancy with two pills. The first of these is RU-486, which is also known as mifepristone or Mifeprex. This pill acts to antagonize the hormone progesterone, which is necessary for pregnancy. By cutting off the nutritional supply to the pregnancy, the unborn baby dies. One or two days later, the woman takes a second pill, misoprostol or Cytotec, which causes uterine contractions and expels the pregnancy. Medical abortion is frequently a distressing experience for women, with symptoms including nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, hemorrhage, and intense pain that can last up to 2-4 weeks.

The reversal is designed to counteract the effects of the first drug, mifepristone, before the second drug, misoprostol, is administered.

Progesterone is a critical hormone during pregnancy, according to Delgado. It helps nourish the placenta, keeps the cervix closed, and inhibits contractions. Mifepristone, a progesterone receptor antagonist, acts like a “false key” binding with the progesterone receptor and blocking its activity. This action results in the softening of the cervix, an increased vulnerability of the uterine wall to contractions, and the attack on the placenta, according to Delgado.

“I considered the possibility that we might be able to outperform [mifepristone] at the receptor [using progesterone],” he stated. At a press conference held at the National Press Club, AAPLOG physicians reported that as of the end of 2014, 78 babies had been born following abortion reversal treatment, with 45 women still pregnant. This represents a 57% success rate out of 223 attempted reversals.

One notable case is that of Andrea Minichini, her partner Chris Caicedo, and their son Gabriel David. Despite still grappling with the decision, Minichini took the first abortion pill, mifepristone, while the abortionist at Planned Parenthood encouraged her. Instead of taking the second pill the following day, which would induce contractions, she began to investigate ways to prevent the death of her unborn child. It is not surprising that the staff at the abortion center were unable to provide assistance. A local hospital informed her that if she carried the baby to term, he would face severe health issues.

A Google search led her to Dr. George Delgado in San Diego. On December 31, 2014, she delivered a healthy baby boy, whom they named Gabriel David.

“It is evident that women are reconsidering their initial decisions and exploring alternative options,” said Delgado.

As previously mentioned, Dr. Delgado’s innovations have already saved 78 young lives. This is just the beginning of what is to come. AAPLOG recently unveiled a new “Emergency Abortion Pill Reversal Kit,” which they would like to see placed in emergency rooms and urgent care clinics nationwide.

Dr. Davenport said that about 200,000 women have abortions each year in the USA.

Dr. George Delgado will speak at the National Right to Life Convention in New Orleans this summer. The event will run from July 9-11 and also feature speakers like Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, John McCormack of the Weekly Standard, NRLC President Carol Tobias, and many more.
