Scores of Babies and Counting: AUL Leads the Fight to Tell Women That If They Act in Time, Chemical Abortion Can be Reversed

In historic firsts, lawmakers in Arizona and Arkansas passed laws requiring abortionists to be honest about the medical reality that sometimes a chemical abortion can be reversed, if a woman acts in time.

The laws were based on AUL informed consent model legislation, detailing the health risks of abortion for women.

The laws drew intense nationwide interest and immediate outcry from the abortion lobby. In the Washington Post, AUL President and CEO Dr. Charmaine Yoest noted, “No medical reason exists to deny mothers the opportunity to choose life by sharing with them all their options.”

While abortionists tried to attack the science, AUL attorney Mailee Smith took to the front page of National Review to explain research that indicates a heavy doses of progesterone can block the effects of the first drug abortionists use to end life. “At this point, it has been reported that more than 80 babies have been born following the abortion-reversal process, with another 60 or so on the way (still in utero),” Smith wrote.
