Bishop’s Catholic Conference 2018
With the startling statistic of a 20% chance of being killed in the womb, Dr. George Delgado brought the reality of abortion in our country to light. His keynote address at this year’s Archbishop’s Pro-Life Catholic Conference was inspiring and eye-opening. Abortion procedures have shifted away from procedural abortions to medical abortions in recent years and the industry is working to make it more accessible to the public.
To simplify this process, according to Dr. Delgado, a medical abortion requires two pills: mifepristone and misoprostol. Mifepristone blocks progesterone while misoprostol induces labor after the child is deceased (24-48 hours later). With the little time Dr. Delgado had to explain the procedure, I thought I would research it myself. Upon googling “RU-486 Procedure”, first options for me to pick from to narrow my search included how to use it, pricing, and how to buy it online. Unsurprisingly, however, was the lack of information about the actual process. This begs the question: if women are supposed to have informed, comprehensive healthcare about abortion, why is there is so little information regarding the procedure itself?
Although this may seem disheartening to think of how many children are lost to abortion and how many mothers are scarred from this violent act, Dr. Delgado spent the majority of his keynote that night and his talk the next day during the conference discussing the breakthrough and advancements in Abortion Pill Reversal. Since its beginning, there have been 500 successful reversals with a 68% success rate. For more information on this process, please visit https://www.abortionpillreversal.com/.
Dr. Delgado, alongside other amazing speakers like Megan Drapa of the Vitae Foundation and Jessica Warner, Director of Legislative Affairs for Ohio Right to Life, provided so much insight into the current fight against abortion. What an amazing opportunity to become more informed and more connected to pro-life efforts in our community!
We returned to Omaha with renewed determination in our mission and the direction our organization is taking. We hope you will consider joining us in one of our 4 areas of involvement and help us renew a culture of life here in Nebraska. All are welcome and encouraged to join us!
As Dr. Delgado so eloquently rounded out his talk on both days with a quote from St. Augustine,
“Pray as if it all depends on God and work as if it all depends on you”.
