A Look Over My Shoulder August 2019


During a chemical abortion, two drugs are administered. Mifepristone is given in the abortion clinic, and misoprostol is taken at home, up to 48 hours later.  Mifepristone blocks progesterone that is needed for the pre-born baby to continue to grow.  Misoprostol causes the woman’s uterus to contract and the baby to be expelled.

A recent study of rat behavior sheds light on the effects of chemical abortion on women. Humans and rats share many common genetic features and by examining the physiology, neurology, neurophysiology and resulting behaviors, such as the response to stress, of a rat, scientists gained valuable insights into similar effects on women.

One of the ways we can bring Life into focus, is to give you a peak at the other side of a “woman’s choice.”

During the study, observations revealed that the rats given a chemical abortion stopped eating as much, activity decreased, grooming ceased, posture was hunched over, and they showed a reduction in exploratory behavior.  

This is very interesting. I have observed women who at the beginning of their post-abortion recovery program exhibited a similar hunched over demeanor; looking like they were carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders.  

However, after completing SOS (Surrendering ‘Our’ Secret), I observed these same women sitting in an upright position and smiling.  Women journey through this program and learn to forgive themselves and others, accepting God’s forgiveness and peace and experiencing His healing.

If you or anyone you know has a hunched over demeanor and seems to be carrying the weight of an abortion on their shoulders, refer them to Informed Choice’s SOS program so that they can receive God’s peace and healing.
