Ottawa, March 19, 2021 – In response to an investigative media article about an abortion “reversal” treatment advertised in Canada, the Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists of Canada (SOGC) released the following statement:
The SOGC does not support prescribing progesterone to stop a medical abortion. The claims regarding so-called abortion “reversal” treatments are not based on scientific evidence.
Not only are the treatments unproven, they can also result in serious complications for the patient.
The Canadian protocol for medical abortion includes counselling to identify those who may be ambivalent about the decision, and to ensure that their decision is made freely, informed and with no coercion.
If a patient changes their mind after taking the first tablet, they should contact their care provider.
The SOGC fully respects the reproductive and sexual health rights of women, and that every individual is entitled to evidence based treatment, free of coercion by any external body.
