Since Roe V Wade was overturned, there has been much confusion around ectopic and abortion. Some news sources said, “People will die.” The idea was that an ectopic pregnancy required an abortion. Some people believed that doctors might not be aware of how abortion laws affect them and wouldn’t hesitate to terminate a life-threatening ectopic baby.
However, ectopic pregnancies existed before this confusing dialogue. What was their treatment? What happened to the women who sought abortion for an ectopic baby? What would a doctor do if they were unsure how to help their patient? What is the truth?
