I have exciting news to share with you that will rescue more babies in the 21st century! The number of abortions in Ohio decreased by 2% last year and there are only 400 abortion facilities left in U.S., down from over 2,000. Abortion activists see the progress we have made. They are afraid of Roe v Wade being overturned, but they are committed to making sure getting an abortion is as easy as ordering from Amazon.
Abortion pill use has increased dramatically over the past few years and we expect that trend to continue. Last year in Ohio, 30% of abortions were completed with the abortion pill. The percentage in Franklin County is even higher at a staggering 51%. Some abortion clinics have converted to be pill-only clinics because it is cheaper and easier for them with less regulation. They are even available online. This is not women’s healthcare!
Abortion providers hand women pills to swallow and send them on their way. They claim, “this is the medicine women need.” They sell that it is quick and easy. Only it’s not that easy with the abortion pill… a baby has already started to develop; a heart is beating and women suffer - cramping and bleeding at home while they pass their child alone.
One woman called PDHC’s hotline in the middle of her abortion pill experience. She was home, alone with profuse bleeding and cramping. She had told no one she was having an abortion. She chose abortion because she didn’t want anyone to know she was pregnant. The painful effects of the abortion medication caused her to fear for her life.
Our helpline provided her with the best care they could at the time. Listening to her, calming her and directing her to seek emergency care, but oh how we would have loved to spare her further agony and rescue her baby’s life. Now thanks to Abortion Pill Reversal medication we have a second chance to save a baby’s life!
I am excited to announce that PDHC has joined Heartbeat International’s Abortion Pill Rescue Network and is partnering with pro-life physicians in our community to provide care that has the potential to reverse an abortion even after the first abortion pill has been taken. Most women don’t want to have an abortion, they succumb to the pressure of their situation or coercion. Some immediately regret taking the abortion pill and desperately want to save the life of their baby. For these mothers, time is of the essence! From the moment a woman takes the first abortion pill she has about 72 hours to initiate Abortion Pill Reversal. PDHC can now provide help and hope for saving the life of her baby.
Through the Abortion Pill Rescue Network 900 babies have already been saved. These babies were literally rescued from the grips of death, but many more are in danger. PDHC stands ready to answer their mothers’ cries for help.
Thank you for standing against the culture of death pervading our communities. In supporting PDHC, you are fighting for life and offering hope to women and families. Donate today so we can help every woman who needs love and encouragement to choose life
