I want to rescue my baby – Neutralizing the abortion pill

The Body’s Own Hormone Can Stop an Abortion

Münchenstein, March 25th, 2021 – In Switzerland, three quarters of all abortions are performed with the abortion pill Mifegyne/RU486. Studies show that approximately 10 percent of all pregnant women quickly regret their decision. The body’s own natural hormone Progesterone, when administered in high doses, is able to stop the effects of the abortion pill. Women who change their mind have about a 60 to 70 percent chance of rescuing their baby. This presupposes that the woman is given the hormone shortly after she has taken the abortion pill and according to a strict time scheme.

According to the Swiss Federal Statistical Office, 7,706 abortions (73.7 percent out of a total of 10,457) were performed using Mifegyne/RU486 in 2018. Deciding for a chemical abortion is not easy for pregnant women. Normally this requires an intense analysis of their own personal situation. Studies in the USA show that about 10 percent of all women that have begun to terminate their pregnancy with the abortion pill very quickly regret their actions. After taking the pill, they suffer from doubts, guilt and remorse. Despite any misgivings, it is not seldom for them to start wishing that they weren’t about to lose their baby.

Procedure Adapted For Switzerland

Until now, there hasn’t been a way to stop a chemical abortion in Switzerland once it has begun. But there is a procedure that can be set in motion which stops the effects of Mifegyne/RU486. It is successfully used in the USA and increasingly also in different European countries. Meanwhile, this technique, which is based on the body’s own hormone Progesterone, has been adapted for use in Switzerland by Swiss doctors.

The pregnant woman takes the bioidentical hormone Progesterone as prescribed by a gynecologist, according to a strict dosage and at pre-determined intervals. The procedure is not harmful for the mother or the baby. As in any pregnancy, the assistance of a trained doctor is essential. Experience internationally has shown that in approximately 60 to 70 percent of all cases, the procedure is successful and the pregnancy continues. The sooner the Progesterone is administered after taking the abortion pill, the better the chance is for the pregnancy to continue. After 36 to 48 hours, however, the success rate rapidly sinks.

The Child is Unharmed

Experience has shown that when the baby was healthy at the time the abortion pill was taken, it will be born healthy. Taking the high dosage of this hormone even supports the development of the fetus. It also reduces the incidence of miscarriages and premature births, and birth weight is generally higher. These are the conclusions from over 2,000 successful applications from the USA alone.

Hotline 24/7 With Free Counselling and Support

The emergency call center of the Swiss Aid for Mother and Child (SAMC) offers its services in order to ensure that a 24/7 hotline carries out the timely coordination between the patient and doctor. Not only the referral to a doctor trained in the procedure, but also the medical services, are completely free of charge. The woman undergoing this treatment can settle the cost of the hormonal tablets with her health insurance.

First Presented in Berne in 2019

The procedure was developed in the USA and was first presented in 2019, as part of a guest lecture by Prof. George Delgado, MD, in Berne, as an antidote to the abortion pill. Various gynecologists support the procedure for use in Switzerland. So far, several babies have already been saved and seen the light of day in this way.

On the website, a particularly impressive case is captured on video.
