Prayer Request-Woman Changed her Mind After Taking RU-486

Dr. Delgado with Colture of Life Family Services (COLFS) in San Diego asks for prayers for “S.M.” (name is being kept private).  This woman called Dr. Delgado from Las Vegas after taking an RU-486 abortion pill on Saturday; which she has now changed her mind about and wants to have her baby.  Dr. Delgado is working to have a progesterone treatment for the woman in an effort to thwart any affects of the pill and save the life of the woman’s child.  


Please pray that “S.M.” is able to have the procedure performed and that baby and mother come out healthy.  


Thank you for being faithful warriors for life and praying for those who are in need.  Please repost this prayer request!


Tuesday 6/21 Update — Dr. Delgado reports: Yesterday, an ultrasound showed that the baby’s heart is still beating! “S.M.” has started the progesterone treatment to stop any affects of the RU-486 abortion pill.  Dr. Delgado continues to ask for prayers for “S.M.”  I’ll post an update as soon as I hear anything more!

    Oh puhleeeze!!! Let's stop calling a 7-weeks old fetus a baby, shall we? *Rolls her eyes* (And it cannot have been older than that if she was able to take the drug mentioned in the post.)

    This said, this woman seems to be in a very difficult situation. I will pray for her so that the fetus survives, IF THAT IS HER WISH.

    You will NEVER make me accept that abortions should be denied to women. Women's rights are human rights.

    Looking in the dictionary, the 7 week old child would be an:

    embryo: an animal in the early stages of growth and differentiation that are characterized by cleavage, the laying down of fundamental tissues, and the formation of primitive organs and organ systems; especially : the developing human individual from the time of implantation to the end of the eighth week after conception

    Fetus:an unborn or unhatched vertebrate especially after attaining the basic structural plan of its kind; specifically : a developing human from usually two months after conception to birth
    source:http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/fetus

    A developing human by both definitions, therefore worthy of human rights also.
    Just a thought.....

    I believe that anonymous post is by a woman named Claudine given away by her trademark * rolls her eyes* and hate and disdain of the acknowledgement of human life. It's so very sad that the antilife promurder agenda cannot allow a woman to acknowledge it's a living being worthy of allowing what it's intended to do in the womb.... Grow! You are sooooo prochoice that you share your vile opinions on a site meant for hope and prayer that a baby... Yes that's right a baby lives through a barbaric and life ending use of medication. Yes Claudine we continue to pray for you as well as the life of this precious gift from God. Maybe you should try loving women instead if spewing your hatred! God bless this woman for listening to her heart and her spirit and giving this BABY a chance at life :)))

    Thank you for taking the time to comment @Pamela and @Nancy. Nancy, I appreciate your insite regarding the use of the terms "embryo" and "fetus".

    I find it unfortunate that @Anonymous disagrees on the issue; however, I appreciate the comment and especially the prayers from all of you for the woman who wants to keep her unborn child. I'm completely open to having a discussion on the topic and invite disagreeing comments.

    I do find it important to understand the words which are being used here. Fetus is actually a Latin word meaning young one or offspring, a lot of people, especially within the pro-abortion movement, use the term fetus to distract from there actually being a baby in the womb. In the American dictionaries I'm starting to see a trend of fetus being interpreted as a child developing in the womb during a specific time of the pregnancy.

    Despite the use of words, we're still referring to a human being developing in the womb. A child at 3 years old is developing too. Does the environment give us a right to kill? Or are we playing with words by saying fetus during the pregnancy and baby the second the child is born?

    Timmerie I read your profile and you are an amazing young woman! Keep up the good work and continue fighting to be the voice of the unborn :) I will pray for your ministry. Satans lies are beautiful and his shackles are strong. I pray God uses you to removes the blinders from the eyes and hearts of those unwilling to acknowledge that ALL LIFE is precious. The well being of the unborn baby doesn't have to be at odds with the mother even in unwanted or unplanned pregnancies :)

    Dr. Hymie Gordon (Mayo Clinic):
    "By all criteria of modern molecular biology, life is present from the moment of conception."

    Dr. Micheline Matthews-Roth (Harvard University Medical School):
    "It is scientifically correct to say that an individual human life begins at conception"
    Milestones of human development begin early. For example, the human heart beings to form 18 days after conception and exhibits a measurable heart beat at 21-24 days.1 The brain begins to form at this time2 and produces measurable brain waves at day 40.3

    By examining abortion statistics, we can determine that all abortions occur after the fetal heart has begun to beat. The vast majority of abortions occur after fetal brain waves have begun.

    Riiiiiight Pamela. Keep telling yourself that. Keep telling there is a *baby* in the womb during the 1st trimester, when the rest of us call it a fetus. Whatever. This is why I do not argue with you anymore. Arguing with your nonsense just isn't worth my time. Really. You will keep not understanding why the rest of us believe abortions should be kept safe, legal and accessible. You will keep not understanding why we find it important that each and every woman decides when a woman becomes a mother. You and I disagree on that. The pro-birth anti-choice movement that unfortunately you are a part of seeks to coerce women into pregnancies. This is not a viable option for women. We are talking about a 12-weeks old fetus here, by which time 90% of abortions have occured. It is possible, AT LAST, to have some sort of intelligent debate here, without immediately pressing your extremist views on each and every woman out there? I am not adverse to debate but I find it impossible to *debate* your extreme anti-choice positions. You will never stop harrassing women who make a legal and valid decisions, regardless of whatever compromise could be reached (but of course, I highly suspect that any compromise would be to you Pamela unacceptable).

    And women will not go back to back-alley abortions when thousands were admitted to hospitals for septic shock and other extreme consequences of unsafe abortions. There was a time for the dark ages: it's called the Middle Ages, and they ended a thousand years ago. And banning abortions do not stop them. Look at Ireland: 12 women A DAY go to England to have an abortion. And if fighting for women's basic human rights, fighting to end the war on women, is "childish" well so be it.

    This said, I have made it very clear that those who would like to pray for this woman should absolutely do so. I sincerely and honestly wish the outcome will be positive, and that the fetus will not have suffered harm, since in the end she decided to keep it. I am just wondering WHY this particular case should offer ANY sort of justification for banning abortions.

    The only non intelligent "debate " you bring Claudine is "it's my body and I'll do WHATEVER I WANT WITH IT". oh and let's not forget you lying about having an abortion which in the end rendered your antilife views as non credible or your statement that you love fetuses.. They taste yummy on your spaghetti. You're so right Claudine those are quite logical intelligent points * rolling my eyes*.... no I stand corrected they were vile dishonest and quite disgusting statements you made. You are the one attempting to spread your antilife propaganda in a rude self righteous way on a site meant to honor both the life of the mother and the child. Your view is that a woman that freely chose to have sex is being held hostage by an unwanted pregnancy as if that child snuck in the back door of your womb and took up residence. Being UNWANTED" is a condition of the mothers heart and not a diagnosis or condition of the child. Despite the hundreds of medical facts presented to you your best argument is to throw a tantrum like s child fists clenched saying you can't make me. Take a look at the stats I posted about number of deaths from illegal and illegal abortions... Your argument is futile and you'll never win people over to your immoral, INHUMANE point that to rip a child into pieces and suction it from it's mothers womb is your basic human right!

    Yeah, sorry Pamela but it's a 12-weeks old fetus we're talking here, in 90% of cases. And even earlier in the case presented here, since at this very early stage a drug could induce the abortion. So forgive me to put the lives of women first, to safeguard their right to chose, their needs and desires, and their basic human right to chose when to become a mother. Or not to be a mother at all, perhaps, when a woman choses not to. I chose life: women's lives. Those who die or are injured from illegal abortions.

    You actually did make it a pro-life issue. YOU brought it up when you made the semantical "it's not a baby, it's a fetus" comment. You felt the need to reiterate the "keep abortion legal" rhetoric so that we don't enjoy someone choosing life too much.

    Of course it's a pro-life issue! Pro-life for the lives of women who will be injured or will die from botched abortions, whose life are drastically and negatively altered by not being able to make a choice they are FULLY entitled to make, who are told by the state that they are only machines to produce babies. It's dehumanizing and it's disgusting. So yes, it's ABSOLUTELY a pro-life issue here, and of fighting anti-choice rhetoric.

    I have no doubt that Pamela will again spout my way her nonsense and her hatred of women. But she will never convince me that coercing women into being pregnant, again and again, is showing any sort of decency and compassion for women. By her views, she has shown that women simply cannot afford not to fight to keep abortions legal, safe and accessible. As long as women are not granted ONCE AND FOR ALL full bodily integrity this debate will never go away.

    Maybe as adults personal accountability should be part of our lexicon! We are not animals after all. You promote only the life of the woman facing an UNWANTED PREGNANCY, yet you look down your nose at the millions of dead babies and smirk with a self righteous grin because you feel your supposed need to live an uninterrupted life is more important. The only compromise I will ever accept is to mews in the middle of both mother and child and support and love them both. Just because I sit in my house doesn't make me part of my house. A baby relies on the mothers womb to grow but is it's own distinct living human being. Like I've said before.... A fetus/small developing child is gaining recognition for it's own personhood and it's own rights through fetal protection laws. Persons like myself and the beautiful 19 year old young woman that runs this blog will continue to fight for the rights of unborn children. If that makes me a crazy Jesus baby loving freak then do be it! I'll never post my prolife pro mother and child stance under an anonymous name... I'll scream it from the mountain tops. Darkness hates the light! When you turn on the lights the roaches scatter so I'll continue to expose the lies of antilife propaganda until I draw my last breath :)

    Yeah, because an egg is totally a chicken so a 12-weeks old fetus is totally a child. For sure, Pamela, for sure. Whatever. Have it your way, if you think that's going anywhere... And I'll keep educating young women about their rights and the need to safeguard them.

    BTW yes, you ARE sort of a freak... I'm not quite sure WHAT it is that makes you want to control women's bodies so much, or what it is that makes you love fetal life so much (to the exclusion of real women's lives) but anyways. Like I said, it's become pointless to actually *argue* for your right to take away my rights to decide when and if I become a mother.

    By the way, making abortions illegal does not stop them. It only makes real women, living in the real world, suffer, and it puts their lives at risk. Not that you would care, of course.

    Anyways, like I said, I'm done trying to talk some sense out of you. Keep spouting your hatred of women, but don't be too surprised if more and more "pro-murder" (lol! Had a good laught about that one) crazies expose your lies and the danger you pose to real, living human beings.

    Somehow saying "it is a 12 week old fetus" justifies killing in Claudine's mind. Even though fetus is only a medical term for a *stage* of human development...and there are MANY stages of human development from the moment of conception up until we die at a ripe old age. You cannot pick and choose at what point a certain stage is more human than the next. Biologically speaking, human development starts at conception with fertilization. I quoted that directly from a biology/human development website, but she ignores it. She also believes "child" is inconsistent with a child in the womb. However, even WebMD called the unborn a "child" and also in the Merriam-Webster dictionary for both the word and for the medical definition of the word "child"...it says as definition #1 (and I quote) -"an unborn or recently born PERSON. Notice even the word "person" used here!?

    I will be praying for this woman and for her precious BABY to be spared and to continue to grow healthy and strong. I don't understand at ALL the need to come on to pro-life pages and spew such nonsense and hatred. Reread your post...you chief concern was NOT the mother or the life of her unborn child...your chief concern was ONLY about getting your abortion agenda out there and being hateful with your "fetus" comment. Where is YOUR compassion and LOVE for *this* woman!?!?

You say constantly you have nothing left to say to us "crazies", yet you just cannot help yourself with a childish rant in all these pro-life places all over the web about how we hate women, how abortion is not killing, how we are crazy terrorists.

    Yet you have failed to scientifically prove your point. Not to mention you disregard any fact posted. And yes I will continue to fight to make abortions illegal because life starts at conception! You've openly admitted you know it's a human life and that you don't care.... Right? That you know an abortion rips that fetus/ small child to shreds. You failed to render my scientific facts that a child as young as 8 weeks gestational age could feel pain. You are blinded by your own self righteousness. And public belief that abortion is murder is growing and more laws like fetal protections will be implemented! Women facing unwanted pregnancies need love for themselves and their child child vile lies that abortion fixes everything. Abortion is nothing more than another assault on a woman body. Your statement that abortions are " happy" are both misleading and sad. Abortion is nothing more than genocide. Just as hitler tried to wipe out the Jews because of who they were, the antilife propaganda has wiped out millions simply because of where they live... In the womb! Planned parenthood was started by a woman that believed in eugenics and wanted to wipe out the black population.... So keep going states.... Defund planned parenthood and stop putting money into the bloody hands of those that demand hands off my body but gimme gimme gimme more money!

    Here is a link to a child at 12 weeks (or if you want the medical terminology for that stage of development, "fetus".) That is a precious, unique human being.

    Amber... Claudine has a longstanding history of ignoring facts regardless of their message or content. I am a woman that had an abortion at a young age and almost died from the procedure. I am now unable to have children because of what that abortionist did to my womb. I accept full responsibility for my actions and realize my abortion was murder! And Claudine and others have mocked my experience and make the statement to me that "the only moral abortion was my abortion" in an attempt to Shame me and discredit my experience. She insists my experience was VERY rare and that because an abortion is supposedly 13x safer than pregnancy abortion is the safest choice for women... How ABSURD!!!!

    and i'm sorry you had to experience that. i have two children and am expecting another. it is 7 weeks 4 days today and it is definitely Not a convenient or great time to have another baby but having a child is a blessing and to take away this child's life over circumstances, well i would never forgive myself and would always wonder what this child's purpose was supposed to be.

    More people need to understand that abortion is truly an evil thing in which abortionists are only motivated by money, greed. obviously as the deaths would be near non existent if they had taken better care of woman. but i'm sure with abortionists pulling the life out of a woman takes a toll and causes them to be brunt, callous and quick about the process.

    While I am pro-choice, I am DISGUSTED by the behavior of the other anonymous pro-choicer on here. This IS NOT THE PLACE. This woman has decided to keep it, and because she has already taken the abortion pill, it is going to be a uphill battle for her, and she deserves everyone's thoughts and prayers. While it may be a fetus to us, it is a wanted baby for this woman and for many people who choose to give birth, and who are you to judge her for that? Would you tell a woman who wants a child and just suffered a miscarriage in the first trimester "Oh, it's just a fetus. You shouldn't worry about it at all," when that fetus is a dream they've been wanting for a long time?? If you're pro-choice, do NOT belittle woman who wish to go through with their pregnancies. The fetus to them often represents hopes and dreams, and to them, is a life/baby within them, and you shouldn't disrespect that. Not on this post at least. Praying for this woman.

Your insincere offer for a prayer after rudely stating to another woman it's not a baby it's a fetus get it right.... Came across as just that Claudine Jacques... Insincere. You need to learn there is a time and a place for your assertions.... This was not one of them!!! If you want to offer sincere hope for her then do it without your dogmatic... Your situation will never make abortion wrong rant!!!!! And quite frankly I'm confused by your offer to pray since you've systematically mocked me and other God fearing Christians for offering the same on other occasions stating you don't believe in God ... he's s fairytale. So yes to myself and Michelle who've come to know your stance quite well... Your words seemed rude, ill placed and insincere

And again why mock others for praying then make a hollow offer of your own prayers.... I'm perplexed by that? !?!?! Why pray to a God you've boldly stated you reject and don't believe in. Own what you put out there. You attempted to degrade others for lovingly calling what's growing in the womb as a BABY. who are you to determine when life begins? Who are you to determined when to snuff that life out by ripping it from the safety of it's mothers womb? Who are you to tell a mother.... "Don't call it a baby... I mean pullleeeze!

    This is your FIRST post here:

    "Anonymous said...

    Oh puhleeeze!!! Let's stop calling a 7-weeks old fetus a baby, shall we? *Rolls her eyes* (And it cannot have been older than that if she was able to take the drug mentioned in the post.)

    This said, this woman seems to be in a very difficult situation. I will pray for her so that the fetus survives, IF THAT IS HER WISH.

    You will NEVER make me accept that abortions should be denied to women. Women's rights are human rights."

    You can't even be supportive of this woman's CHOICE to try to save her unborn child without FIRST giving a childish rant on fetus/baby terminology. And you will pray for her so that the fetus survives? You have told me and Pamela you are an atheist...curious as to who exactly you are praying to? That comment is a seriously hollow one considering what you have told us and made fun of us about believing in God on another site.

    If you genuinely cared about this woman and her decision to try to save this pregnancy, you would NOT of went off on the rant that you did of fetus/baby. This is NOT the time or the place for your ridiculous chicken egg comparison to a human being either.

    I thought you loved women and were upholding their "CHOICE"?? I don't see love for this woman...nor do I see you respecting her choice to try to save this pregnancy. I just see a bunch of hate. You even got reprimanded by someone on the pro-choice/abortion side on what you are saying on this particular post! That should tell you something...but you are even ignoring their wise advice!

    You just said this: "Then Pamela automatically began to attack me. Because OF COURSE all millions of pro-choice women and men out there are AUTOMATICALLY vile, antiwomen and inhumane monsters, murderers and killers of babies. Um, yeah. "

    You seriously need to reread your FIRST comment and reflect on how you come across. *You* came off attacking anyone that lovingly refers to their unborn child as a "baby". I don't see ONE ounce of compassion in that post of yours...your first words were full of hate and when you are called on it, you resort to calling us freaks and women haters. Please grow up!

    And yes...abortion kills/takes the life of an unborn child. Remember, child means an unborn or recently born person. :)

    This entire piece was to pray for a woman who regretted taking an abortion pill and was hoping to save the life of her unborn child. You turned it into a ridiculous hate filled rant...right from your FIRST words you typed, then complain about anyone who calls you on your ridiculous behavior.

    Anon - you came her looking for a fight darling - why are you so upset that you found one? You came out of the gate eyes rolling - what did you expect an inviation to tea? You didn't come here trying to make friends you came here to be antagonistic.
    As to your war on women - Abortion does funny things to women. It implies that women can only be a mother or something else (generally more valuable - meaning that most women because they are mothers are less valuable and being as men are never mothers this more valuable role is going to be a male role), actually reinforcing the ideal that women are babymakers and that babymakers are bad. You as a woman can be either a baby maker or something else. You are easily deterred from your goals and aspirations by your own biology and it's functions. You cannot control your emotions, some claim ever but surely not during that "time of the month" and you cannot possibly carry a child and do anything else after that. There are studies that show pregnant women use more of their brain during pregnancy - but that aside. It also implies that women's natural ability to carry children is a hinderance and that they need abortion to be "better" - to essentially be like men. There is still the male standard that is the ideal and women are given abortion to make them "better".

    Any woman who genuinely cares about women's issues would have to evaluate abortion in all honesty. And it would not be unreasonable to say that in a patriarchal society that men would use abortion to exploit women. Abortion allows men to evade all responsibility. Men don't have abortions either - so it has not evened the playing field as we would like to think.
    It also pushes the responsibility of pregnancy and child rearing on the woman. Since we have given her an out (abortion) if she chooses to carry her baby to term it is her responsibility - after all she could have always gotten an abortion.
    Pro-choicers will tell you that a woman does not want an abortion like she wants a new car or an ice cream cone. The reasons that women have abortions are mostly socio-economic. We can all say that when a woman is in a situation were she thinks the best option is to terminate - we can say that is not a good situation. But abortion allows us to overlook those reasons, we don't get at the reasons why she had an abortion - we just want to make sure that she can keep having them. I think that we owe it to women to give them something better, that as a society if all we can offer is abortion we have not really helped women.

    I understand some women (I know quite a few) that don't want to be mothers for many reasons. No one is saying that they have to or that to have value as a woman that they have to bear children. We respect that decision. I don't want to get married - I imagine my feelings on marriage are a lot like their feelings on motherhood - scary and not in the least bit attractive or appealing. All that I am asking is that they not kill their chilren in order to avoid motherhood, that seems a bit extreme don't you think? I wouldn't kill my boyfriend if I got drunk in Vegas and woke up unintentianally married would I?

    First and foremost I would like to say that this woman and her child will be in my prayers! God works wonderful miracles we just need to trust in him!

    Secondly, my heart is saddened by a few of the above comments. Accusations such as "everyone but you call it a baby" are so very false. A baby is a baby whether 1 day after conception or 3 months after birth. The heart starts beating at 22 days...that is not even 4 weeks after conception and these babies are losing their lives. It makes me sick to think that people find this okay. If people are stading up for women's rights, what about the young women being aborted...it seems several people are contradicting themselves...

    In the words of Dr. Suess, "a persons a person no matter how small".

    I pray for mom and baby first of all.
    Second how come all these women's rights activist don't realize that aborions strip us of our feminism. We are the only ones created by nature, God or whatever toe belief is that can have children. Every abortion performed strips us of our womanhood and takes away our God given right to birth a child. It's our responsiblity as a women to take precaution with our bodies they are like temples and a reflection of our beliefs.
    I believe only people severly distorted self images would sink to murdering there own child...I know some people are pushed down the path believing there is no other way but that is only because abortion is publicize as a form of birth control. As long as we keep talking about it and reaching out to others we can get this done. Someone needs to file an appeal based on the false evidence presented in Roe v Wade

    Anonymous, I had my first ultrasound with my son at 5 weeks post-conception (7 lnmp) He already had a beating heart, a head, arms and legs. You could clearly see the orbits of his eyes on the ultrasound. At a little over a month old he already looked very human! I am sorry you want to keep denying reality in order to assuage your own guilt for supporting the killing of innocent human children in the womb but you cannot convince me to believe your lies when I have lived the truth. I saw the truth with my own eyes. My son was alive and obviously human. Whether you want to use the term "fetus" or "baby" doesn't change facts... HE WAS ALIVE AND HUMAN!!!!!! nuff said.

    My name is Sydney M. btw...
