Positivity: Twin Babies Survive Abortion at Planned Parenthood

Physician Brent Boles is taking the internet by storm once again with a Facebook post about a pregnant patient whose chemical abortion failed to take the life of not one, but both of her unborn children.

Pregnant with twins, the patient didn’t know she was expecting more than one baby until after she’d already begun the chemical abortion pill regimen.

In a Facebook post, Boles shared the following, along with a glowing picture of the unborn twins:

I have this patient’s permission to share her story. She had an unplanned pregnancy. She went to Planned Parenthood in Knoxville (since the one in Nashville still was in its period of ‘quality improvement’ and wasn’t seeing abortion patients) and had her ultrasound. They asked her if she wanted to know the details and she said yes.

She asked if there was a heartbeat. She was told, at an age between 7-8 weeks, that ‘there is cardiac activity but it’s too early to call it a heartbeat.’

Boles then proceeded to dismantle Planned Parenthood’s lie:

Problem #1: that is a load of hogwash. If the heart’s activity is visible, there is a heartbeat. There is no medical literature that says otherwise.

Why would they handle it that way? Because acknowledging in layman’s terms that there is a heartbeat makes the patient less likely to go through with the abortion. So, once again, they are willing to lie to women to get their money.

Problem #2: they didn’t tell her that she was having twins. Either their sonographer was incompetent, or they once again lied since they know that a woman who finds out that she’s having twins may have a harder time with the thought of aborting two babies instead of one.

In its age-old war against pro-life pregnancy help centers, the abortion lobby has falsely claimed that the ultrasound services provided by life-affirming medical clinics aren’t regulated and “give people inaccurate results.” And yet, as Boles points out in his latest post, Planned Parenthood did just that with his patient, failing to notify her that she was carrying two bodies within her body, lying about their heartbeats, and displaying utter incompetence.

Problem#3: and this really isn’t a problem – at least not for us. The abortion pill didn’t work. The patient is now very happy that it didn’t work. Why didn’t it work? Probably because the extra progesterone from the fact that there are two babies overcame the progesterone blockade that the abortion pill tries to create.

Boles, who is a member of the Abortion Pill Rescue Network, told Pregnancy Help News that his patient originally came to him through the group’s 24/7 helpline (877-558-0333). She had found the helpline after returning to Planned Parenthood for a follow-up appointment and discovering that she was still pregnant. Because Planned Parenthood had no help to offer her, she left and searched the web before landing on AbortionPillReversal.com.

Abortion Pill Reversal, which has saved more than 500 babies to date, works by giving pregnant women additional progesterone, a natural hormone that sustains a healthy pregnancy. In the case of a twin pregnancy, a woman’s body produces more progesterone to nurture both babies.

In evaluating his patient and the twins, Boles determined that extra progesterone via Abortion Pill Reversal wouldn’t be necessary this time around.

The twins are not the first babies to be safeguarded from abortion with Boles’ assistance. …
