In 2006, Dr. Matthew Harrison was in his office in North Carolina when he received an urgent phone call. A pregnancy care center, for which he is on the board, was calling about a young woman who had taken the RU-486 abortion pill and immediately regretted that decision. The young woman had told her mother about the abortion and the mother called the pregnancy center looking for help.

Dr. Harrison had no idea if he would be able to help this woman save her baby, but he was willing to try.

The young woman arrived at Dr. Harrison’s office and told him the full story. He informed her that there was no known antidote or treatment to stop the abortion. Unsure of what to do, he stepped out of the office to pray, and then he began searching through medical books, focusing on how RU-486 works.


After the baby was born, Dr. Harrison spoke with Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life who told him that he should develop a protocol so that this abortion reversal he had discovered could be used by doctors around the country, and the world.

“He interviewed me on the internet and had stories written up and I started to get calls from around the country and other countries asking what protocol I had used and what I had done,” explained Dr. Harrison. “People started to try it and have success. […] We just kind of went word of mouth to different doctors. [George] Delgado started counseling doctors on the West Coast. And we joined forces and now I’m associate medical director with a family services program he is running in San Diego. He and I have been working together to get the word out about the protocol.”
