In brief: Not used for it

The ABO and rhesis blood grouping systems are separate issues altogether. Rhogam is used to prevent an rh- mother from becoming sensitized to a rh+ baby & developing antibodies that would destroy some of the babies blood for that or future pregnancies.
The Rhogam has no effect on potential ABO issues.

In brief: It is not

Rhogam was developed to prevent rh sensitization in pregnancies where the mother is rh- and the fetus is rh+.
Rhogam has no role in managing ABO incompatibility, which is due to an entirely different group of red blood cell antigens.
