This morning Priests for Life and the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetrician-Gynecologists (AAPLOG) held a press conference to bring attention to the life-saving procedure of reversing RU-486 and to introduce a new “RU-486 Reversal Kit” not previously available to physicians.
Andrea Minichini gave her testimony of how progesterone injections saved her son’s life, Gabriel, after she had taken the first of two abortion pills and then had a change of heart. At first she was told by the abortion provider that once she took the first pill it was to late to change her mind. Her strong desire to reverse her horrible decision led her to the internet for research where she discovered the truth about reversing the effects of the first abortion pill she had already taken and save her son’s life.
Also testifying at the press conference were Dr. Matt Harrison, medical advisor to Priests for Life, did the first reversal in 2007 – relying on prayer and a deep understanding of the way mifepristone works. In 2012, Drs. George Delgado and Mary Davenport published a study in the Annals of Pharmacology, outlining a reversal protocol developed by Dr. Delgado.
With advances in technology, the pro-life movement is able to share the truth and expose the lies that have been spread by the abortion industry. Just like Andrea was told that it was too late for her to change her mind, parents seeking abortion information have been lied to on many levels.
Women and families seeking abortions have been told everything from “It’s just a blog of tissue” to “abortion is safe” and everything in between. Even with the advancements in ultrasound, and the overwhelming amount of evidence that show the risks of abortion on women’s physical and mental health, the abortion industry holds on to their lies. And since they are a multi-billion dollar industry, they are able to repeat their lies more often than we are able to share the truth that they try to drown the truth amidst all their lies. But little by little we are making progress and the truth about abortion is being exposed.
And as we expose the truth, we work on reversing the effects. This year Priests for Life has begin an initiative, Healing the Shockwaves of Abortion. Through this initiative, we will reverse the effects of abortion by focusing on healing a different segment of the population that has been harmed by abortion each month.
As February and Black History Month winds down we continue to expose the effects of abortion in the African American community even as we prepare to expose the effects on Grandparents during the month of March.
As we work to expose abortion it’s time we demand the recall of abortion before more lives are destroyed.
