May 1, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – Indiana and West Virginia have approved laws to restrict chemical abortions and help mothers reverse them.
Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb (R) Thursday signed House Bill 1577, requiring abortion providers to inform pregnant mothers choosing the abortion pill about life-saving reversal procedures.
The abortion pill reversal method involves counteracting mifepristone, the first drug in the two-part abortion pill regimen, which kills babies by blocking the pregnancy hormone progesterone. Mothers can be given doses of progesterone to reverse the effects of mifepristone, though the method only works if the mother has not taken misoprostol, the second drug used in chemical abortions.
Around 2,000 women in the United States have given birth to healthy babies after undergoing abortion pill reversals in recent years. Chemical abortions account for nearly half of all abortions in the U.S.
HB 1577 contains several other new abortion regulations, including bans on all drug-induced abortions after eight weeks of pregnancy and on mail delivery of abortion pills. The law also expands abortion providers’ reporting requirements, mandates that abortion facilities provide mothers with an ultrasound image of their baby, and requires notarization of written parental consent for minors seeking an abortion.
A hearing on HB 1577 earlier this year featured testimony of a woman who found out about abortion pill reversals on the internet after beginning a chemical abortion that she soon regretted. The mother said that her child is alive today thanks to the reversal procedure.
“What we want to do is just provide the women with the information so you don’t have to Google it, because it is very time sensitive that you have this information,” the lead sponsor of HB 1577, Rep. Peggy Mayfield, said.
Dr. Christina Francis, president of the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists (AAPLOG), also testified in favor of the bill. “If we truly care about women being able to make informed choices, that should include knowing there’s an option if they change their mind,” she said.
AAPLOG endorses the abortion pill reversal method, noting that progesterone has been safely used by pregnant women for decades and that there is no evidence of birth defects caused by reversed abortions.
PETITION UPDATE (9/26/2020):
With President Trump's nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court left by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, we are closer than we have been in decades to seeing Roe vs. Wade overturned.
We now encourage the Senate to confirm Barrett as the next Associate Justice of the Supreme Court.
Judge Barrett has a fantastic track recond on sanctity of life issues, has seven children, and is a devout believer. She is the perfect remedy for Ruth Bader Ginsburg's radical pro-abortionism.

And then, please SIGN this petition telling the High Court that it's now time to end the activist Roe vs. Wade judgment. Thank you!
PETITION UPDATE (6/29/2020):
In a decision which has imperiled more abortion-minded women, sentenced more preborn to death, and upset pro-lifers across the nation,the United States Supreme Court decided 5-4 to strike down a Louisiana law requiring basic medical precautions in the event of abortion complications, with Chief Justice John Roberts reversing his own past decision to uphold a similar Texas law.
Liberal Justice Stephen Breyer wrote the majority opinion, which held that the Louisiana law was unconstitutional for the simple fact that it was “almost word-for-word identical” to the Texas one the court already struck down in 2016.
In his concurring opinion, Chief Justice Roberts acknowledged that he had “joined the dissent in Whole Woman’s Health and continue to believe that the case was wrongly decided. The question today however is not whether Whole Woman’s Health was right or wrong, but whether to adhere to it in deciding the present case.”
We call on the Supreme Court to stop supporting the culture of death and overturn Roe vs Wade, now.
PETITION UPDATE (1/20/2020):
Hundreds of thousands of people will gather in Washington, D.C., this coming Friday, January 24th, for the March for Life. They will be praying for an end to Roe vs Wade, as the Supreme Court will hear a crucial, abortion-related case later this year in March. United our voices can change the course of history. Sign this petition TODAY! (LEARN MORE BELOW)
PETITION UPDATE (1/3/2020):
In advance of the Supreme Court's hearing arguments in an important abortion case later this year in March, 207 U.S. Senators and Representatives have signed amicus briefs supporting a Louisiana law requiring abortionists to have admitting privileges at a hospital nearby an abortion center.
Some of these supporting briefs also suggest that now is the time to reconsider Roe vs Wade as sound law.
Please SIGN this petition, calling on the U.S. Supreme Court to strike down Roe vs Wade.
More than 60 million Americans have been slaughtered in their mother's wombs as a result of Roe v. Wade. This activist, unconstitutional ruling in 1973 has left countless women emotionally and psychologically scarred.
It was believed by many that Roe would be overturned in 1992 with Planned Parenthood v. Casey. Despite having eight Republican-appointed judges at the time, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 to uphold it.
Since then, major gains have been made in the fight for life, and many lives have been saved.
However, Roe v. Wade remains the law of the land, leaving millions of defenseless pre-born children vulnerable to murder.
According to a 2016 study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 35% of aborted babies are African American, despite black women only making up six percent of the U.S. population. 19% of aborted babies are Hispanic.
We thus again call on the court to do everything they can to end Roe vs Wade.
Now is the time for pro-lifers to join together and ensure that all of God's children have a right to life.
Roe v. Wade must come to an end!
FOR MORE INFORMATION:
On Wednesday, Gov. Jim Justice (R) of West Virginia signed another bill advancing life-saving regulations of drug-induced abortions.
Like HB 1577, the Second Chances at Life Act requires that women be told about abortion reversal procedures. The bipartisan bill cleared the West Virginia Senate earlier this month 27-6 and passed the House 84-15. Multiple other states, including Montana and Arizona, enacted new abortion pill regulations this week as well.
The pro-abortion Biden administration had expanded access to chemical abortions earlier this month, approving mail delivery of abortion pills or “tele-abortion.” The United States Catholic Conference of Bishops excoriated the administration for “callous capitulation to the requests of abortion activists without regard for the health and safety of the women involved.”
If you or someone you know has taken the abortion pill, there may still be a chance of reversing the abortion process and saving the baby's life, even after 72 hours. Time is of the essence. Call the Abortion Pill Reversal (APR) hotline is (877) 558-0333.
