Roger Marshall: ectopic pregnancy terminations not abortion

By Sen. Roger Marshall, M.D. 

“Don’t let the sun set on an ectopic pregnancy” was an axiom we were taught the first week of OB-GYN residency – it’s as true today as it was before and after Roe, and after Dobbs.


Pro-Life states like Texas don’t ban miscarriage treatment

Make no mistake about it, an ectopic pregnancy is always a life-threatening condition, and the reality of being sued for delay in treatment far outweighs the misguided cry of those who say physicians will “withhold treatment.”

Like all OB-GYNs, including pro-life OB-GYNs, I commonly treated ectopic pregnancies as well as miscarriages. Neither an ectopic pregnancy or miscarriages are an abortion, and the myth that this will change after Dobbs is simply inconsistent with any clinical reality.

Another myth? Those on the left say, “Overturning Roe is devastating to women’s health.” They imply carrying a baby to term is more dangerous than an abortion. Using their logic, should we abort every baby? Should we stop all childbearing?

Presenting abortion as the ‘life-saving solution’ for women facing challenging pregnancies is a warped view of health care. It belongs in a culture that does not value human life. And it denies the modern medical science that can bring both mother and baby safely through even a high-risk pregnancy. Finally, in absolute terms, trauma, suicide and drug overdose kill more women of child-bearing age.
