Midsy drove home from the abortion clinic, she began to regret her decision to take the first dose of a chemical abortion regimen. “The drive home, I was just sick about what I just did and the thought that I was actually killing a baby with a heartbeat inside me. I went home and just cried and cried and knew I needed to seek help.”
But treatment she received through the Abortion Pill Rescue Network (APRN) reversed the procedure, saving the life of her son Tig, who was born at 31 weeks in the fall of 2016.
In 2000, there were virtually no chemical abortions, Jor-El Godsey, president of Heartbeat International, told MinistryWatch. But that same year, the Federal Drug Administration approved RU-486, a two-step process using mifepristone and misoprostol, to chemically induce abortions.
According to data gathered by the American Life League, Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, increased its abortion pill facilities from 57 to 215 between the years 2005 and 2021.
