Doctor Began Abortion Reversal Movement

April 13, 2015

(Union Times San Diego) – Operating from a nondescript office building in Escondido, Dr. George Delgado is a low-key family physician. But he is getting national attention lately because of major changes to abortion laws in Arizona and Arkansas. Activists in both states relied on Delgado’s work with the hormone progesterone to push for amendments requiring health providers who prescribe abortion medications to tell patients that “it may be possible to reverse the effects of the abortion if the pregnant woman changes her mind, but that time is of the essence.”
