North Carolina Doctor Is Saving Babies Even After Chemical Abortion Had Already Started

A North Carolina doctor is saving unborn babies and giving their mothers hope that they can reverse a nearly fatal mistake. Dr. Matthew Harrison, and other doctors, have helped 213 mothers reverse the effects of their chemical abortions and have saved their babies’ lives by using a new abortion pill reversal technology, Fox 46 in Charlotte, North Carolina, reported [ http://www.fox46charlotte.com/news/local-news/44018071-story ]. Harrison, associate medical director of the program, worked with Dr. George Delgado to develop the abortion pill reversal technology and offer it to women across the world. To date, the new technology has saved 137 healthy babies’ lives, and 76 more mothers are still pregnant with their unborn babies, according to the report.

The first, mifepristone, blocks the hormone progesterone from getting to the growing baby, starving it of the nutrients it needs to survive. The second drug, misoprostol, taken 48-72 hours later, triggers uterine contractions to expel the dead baby. Women eventually complete the abortion at home, sometimes during traumatic and painful uterine contractions, and deliver a dead baby. The abortion pill reversal team found that women who receive high doses of progesterone shortly after taking the first abortion pill can override the action of the progesterone blocker, and save the baby’s life, LifeNews.com previously reported. “We’ve only had one or two women who have called and already taken the second abortion pill, and unfortunately those cases were not successful in reversing because they had already started the labor process,” Harrison...
