Two Anti-Abortion Organizations Face Legal Action Over 'Abortion Pill Reversal' Claims in California

Two anti-abortion organizations are facing legal action in California for allegedly promoting 'abortion pill reversal.' 

The two organizations being sued are Heartbeat International (HBI), a national anti-abortion group, and RealOptions Obria, which operates five anti-abortion counselling centers in Northern California. They claimed that a high dose of progesterone could reverse the effects of the abortion pill. 

California's Attorney General, Rob Bonta, has initiated legal proceedings against these organizations for promoting a potentially dangerous and unproven medical procedure. 

"Those who are struggling with the complex decision to get an abortion deserve support and trustworthy guidance - not lies and misinformation," Bonda said in a statement. 

'Abortion pill reversal' treatments are considered unproven, largely experimental, and lacking scientific validation. Consequently, the California Attorney General has accused these organizations of violating a law against fraudulent business practices. 

“The horrifying reality is that right now there are more crisis pregnancy centers in California than abortion care clinics,” stated Bonta. “Crisis pregnancy centers do not provide abortion or abortion referral, though they may want you to believe they do.” 

The abortion pill consists of two doses: the first is mifepristone, followed by misoprostol. In California, this regimen can be administered up to 11 weeks after the final day of the menstrual cycle. 

Advocates of the unproven treatment claim that if a pregnant person takes high doses of the hormone progesterone within 72 hours of taking the first drug (mifepristone), it will safely and effectively counteract the effects of mifepristone. 

In their advertisements, Heartbeat International and RealOptions falsely present the treatment as a valid and successful option. According to the lawsuit, they neglected to inform patients about possible side effects, including the risk of severe bleeding. 

Heartbeat International informed The Associated Press that it became aware of the lawsuit through interview requests but had not been officially served. 

"These women deserve the right to try and save their pregnancies. No woman should ever be forced to complete an abortion she no longer wants,” it said.
