Are Abortion Reversals Science Or Scam?


Are Abortion Reversals Science Or Scam?
The Federalist

Abortion reversal refers to halting a chemical abortion, an abortion caused by ingesting a drug. The abortion pill first made headlines when the French government approved RU-486 for sale in 1988. In September 1990, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the abortion pill to terminate pregnancies up to seven weeks old. Then in 2016, the FDA expanded the label to include terminating pregnancies up to ten weeks.Sold in the United States under the brand name Mifeprex and generically known as mifepristone, the abortion pill, as the FDA explained, âis used, together with another medication called misoprostol, to end an early pregnancy.â Mifeprex, which is taken first, binds to a womanâs progesterone receptors, blocking progesterone from the uterine lining. Progesterone deficiency causes the uterine lining to break down, depriving the embryo of the nutrients necessary to live.
