Pregnancy Help News published the story on their website of a Missouri woman this week, telling how she came to save her child with abortion pill reversal after she took Mifepristone, the first part of the abortion pill regimen.

The woman, whom the article refers to as "April" was convinced by her boyfriend to have an abortion despite her initial objection. 

“Her boyfriend started pressuring her to have an abortion about two weeks after she found out she was pregnant,” said Pregnancy Resource Center (PRC) of Rolla Executive Director Joseph Dalton. “He said she was ruining his life. That it was her fault.”

He even threatened to take her to court to take custody of the child away from her if she did decide to give birth.

April traveled to Hope Clinic in Granite City, Illinois to obtain a chemical abortion (abortion pills), but she immediately felt regret after taking Mifepristone, the first part of the abortion pill regimen. Luckily, her Google searches led her to Heartbeat International's abortion pill reversal hotline. Nurses with the Abortion Pill Rescue Network and the PRC of Rolla helped April acquire Progesterone, which can reverse the effects of Mifepristone.

Mifepristone kills an unborn child by blocking a pregnant mother's natural progesterone, which helps the mother's body provide oxygen and nutrients to her child. By taking more progesterone quickly, pregnant mothers may be able to save their child by restoring the normal flow of sustenance from the mother's body to the child.

April and her child are now happy and healthy. She expects to give birth to a boy this fall.
