Episode 1: RU486 Pill Reversal

A new protocol has been developed where babies can be saved after their mom takes the first of the two pill regimen of RU486, which cuts off nutrition to the baby, and decides not to complete the abortion by taking the second pill, which would evacuate the baby’s remains by means of contractions. The reversal is accomplished by means of another pill, which enables the baby to once again receive nutrition, prior to its death from starvation.
