ABORTION PILL REVERSAL
If a woman has taken the first dose of the abortion pill (RU-486), there is still hope! Before the second pill is taken, there is an effective process for reversing the abortion pill called Abortion Pill Reversal. The goal is to start the reversal treatment within the first 24 hours of taking the abortion pill, but many successful reversals have still occurred when treatment was started within 72 hours of taking the abortion pill.
