“Women are going to die, it has already started.” That was the crux of a horror story that was being sent around after the Dobbs decision, but not everybody was buying it. Supposedly, a woman had walked into the hospital with an ectopic pregnancy, and the doctor spent nine hours with his lawyer making sure he wouldn’t lose his license for operating on her while she bled internally.
That’s one of the arguments the pro-abortion crowd is making: that ectopic pregnancies will be outlawed and women will die. We’re not sure where she found it, but actor Halle Berry passed around a list of abortions that would kill women if they were denied.

removal of an ectopic pregnancy from the fallopian tube, which is 95% of ectopic cases, is called a salpingostomy. It’s never an abortion. Abortion is intrauterine.

The treatment 4 ectopic is chemotherapy with methotrexate if early &, usually, salpingectomy if not. These aren't abortions
The treatment for endometritis is IV Antibiotics. Not abortion
The treatment 4 an incomplete miscarriage is a Dilation and Curettage. Not an abortion https://t.co/oFVHeRuoQm

So Dr. Berry didn’t come up with this herself?
How is this not flagged for misinformation? None of this is true. Suggesting otherwise is seriously disgusting. https://t.co/WhjZJdK9PP

No state bans abortions when it’s necessary to save the life of the mother https://t.co/uzxkpjdUx1

In the states where abortion is illegal the health of the mother is priority. If the life of the mother is threatened it is allowed. This is wrong and fearmongering. https://t.co/dtvYPPuQN1

People who spread false information will cauae harm. Women may not seek treatment for miscarriage or ectopic pregnacies because they are told it is illegal. It is not illegal to treat ectopic pregnancy or miscarriage in any state. https://t.co/F8bNCPWb6M

They act as if there are no exceptions when the life of the mother is in danger. As someone pointed out above, not even Planned Parenthood considers the treatment of an ectopic pregnancy as an “abortion.” Same with a miscarriage. This is just wrong. But Berry put a little broken heart emoji at the top, so take it seriously, ’cause she’s sad.
