Treating of ectopic pregnancies is still legal in states where abortion bans are in place despite misinformation

Despite widespread media misinformation, treating ectopic pregnancies remains legal in states where abortion is banned.

An ectopic pregnancy occurs when a fertilized egg implants outside the uterus and can be life-threatening for the pregnant woman.

False information

“’ Do I abort this ectopic pregnancy to literally save my life or do I go to jail?’” Daily Beast columnist Wajahat Ali asked on Twitter.

“Question women in America now have to ask,” he added, despite the fact that the situation remains treatable in all 50 states.

Trigger laws allow it

“There are 13 states in the U.S. that have trigger laws in place banning abortion in the event of Roe v. Wade being overturned – Arkansas, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Wyoming,” Fox News reported.

“There are also five additional states – Alabama, Arizona, Michigan, West Virginia and Wisconsin – that still have an abortion ban on the books from before Roe v. Wade that will go into effect now that the 1973 landmark law is overturned,” it added.

Sadly, some of the misinformation comes from Democrats in their push to support abortion.

New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was one to recently falsely state information about ectopic pregnancy.

Abortion will remain a controversial topic in our culture, but the issue of ectopic pregnancy is now being used as misinformation in abortion arguments.
