Preborn Baby Survives Abortion After Mother Reverses Abortion Pill

Since 2012, 77 children have survived abortion attempts on their lives from “the abortion pill”  (most accurately named mifepristone) thanks to and their network of 226 pro-life OBGYNs.

Women who take the first dose of the abortion pill and regret it are able to seek help from pro-life clinics which can put them in touch with doctors who are able to give them an immediate dose of progesterone to block the abortion-causing effects of the abortion pill mifepristone (originally called RU486). The doctors also follow up to ensure that the baby remains healthy.

One such woman, “Jen,” visited Assure Pregnancy Center after Planned Parenthood gave her RU-486 and she took the first pill… While at Planned Parenthood, Jen was not allowed to hear the heartbeat of her baby, which was the one thing giving her doubts about aborting. After she took that first pill, all she could think about was the heartbeat that the pills would be ending. She realized she had made a mistake, and she headed to Assure.

At Assure, the staff nurse performed a free ultrasound on Jen, and she was able to hear the heartbeat of her seven-week, three-day-old baby. Then the nurse called Culture of Life Family Services, the group that created Two hours later, the nurse reached a doctor who was able to help Jen that very day.

In the months following, the nurse kept in touch with Jen, offering her support. On December 20, 2014, Jen gave birth to a healthy baby boy weighing seven pounds, two ounces. She is so happy that Assure and the doctor with were available for her.

She says: There is help out there for women who are confused. There is a new light in my home that brings a smile to everyone in my family. And I would not change it for the world.

Debbie Bradel, BSN, PHN, coordinator of, told Pregnancy Help News that every woman they have helped has said she is so grateful for her miracle baby. Many of these women are now pro-life advocates, with one woman even speaking at the Walk for Life West Coast in January 2015.
