Rebekah Buell`s journey began in 2011, when she became pregnant with her first son at just 17. Despite the many challenges she faced, Rebekah chose life for her first-born, and went on to begin college at a California University. Her future was looking up, but before long, Rebekah`s troubled relationship came to an end, and it was at that same time that she discovered she was pregnant with her second child. Feeling panicked, ashamed, and afraid of losing her parent`s support and college dreams, Rebekah decided that raising two children at 19 years old would be impossible. With no hope in sight, she visited Planned Parenthood at 8 weeks pregnant and began a chemical abortion.
Immediately after taking the first, ru486 abortion pill, Rebekah knew she had made the biggest mistake of her life. Still sitting in the abortion clinic`s parking lot, she turned to her phone in search of a way to save her baby. Miraculously, with the help of a new protocol called “Abortion-Pill-Reversal,” Rebekah was able to see a pro-life doctor who began administering injections of progesterone to counteract the abortion pill she took. Although Planned Parenthood told her this would be impossible and lead to “severe deformations,” Buell gave birth to a perfectly healthy baby boy in October of 2013.
The life Rebekah thought would be impossible as a young, single mother of two has been better than she ever could have imagined, and she is eternally grateful for God`s divine intervention that allowed her to reverse her abortion. These days, this now pro-life speaker spends her time enjoying her two young sons, sharing her testimony, and reaching out to young women in similar situations.
