The State of California’s complaint alleges that HBI and RealOptions are sharing “false or misleading statements,” as well as engaging in “unlawful, unfair, and fraudulent business practices,” for providing information about and access to Abortion Pill Reversal to pregnant women in need. California Attorney General Bonta is seeking a permanent injunction against HBI and RealOptions, to prevent them from sharing their science-based, life-affirming message about the benefits, success, effectiveness, and safety of Abortion Pill Reversal.
Thomas More Society has stepped in to defend both HBI and RealOptions against this frivolous and dangerous lawsuit. Today, more than half of all abortions are done through chemical abortion, or “the abortion pill”—a two- pill regimen that destroys the precious life of an unborn child. Abortion Pill Reversal is a cutting-edge application of a time-tested, FDA-approved treatment used for decades to prevent miscarriage and preterm birth. It involves emergency, ongoing doses of progesterone to counteract the effects of the first abortion pill.
HBI is the first network of pro-life pregnancy resource centers founded in the United States, in 1971. It is now the most expansive network in the world. HBI has over 3,000 affiliated pregnancy help locations including pregnancy help medical clinics (with ultrasound), resource centers, maternity homes, and adoption agencies in more than 80 countries worldwide to provide alternatives to abortion. HBI manages the Abortion Pill Rescue Network.
Simply put, women deserve the right to try and save their pregnancies. No woman should ever be forced to complete an abortion she no longer wants. Thomas More Society is proud to stand in defense of Heartbeat International’s critical work on the frontlines of saving mothers and their unborn children on the cusp of abortion.
