Pro-Abortion Physician Activism is Intellectually Dishonest & Ethically Wrong

GUEST POST: The pro-life movement has been looking to the self-proclaimed “experts” to be honest with the public and provide guidance to practicing medical professionals, as those who are pro-abortion are confused and apparently incapable of reading state law. But the wait is over; in a recent article, the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) took a magnifying glass to state pro-life laws and admitted, “Every state has an exception that allows for an abortion needed to save the life of the pregnant person [AKA the mother].”  

Left wing media pundits and activists disguised as medical doctors have threatened the lives of women across the nation by propagating the blatant misinformation that pro-life laws do not allow physicians to intervene to save the life of the mother. (No one in the pro-life movement wants to take away true health care from women.) But the pro-abortion media is on the hunt for cases that will exploit the empathy of the general public to deceitfully win their case as they did in Ireland.  

Here’s what really happens with pregnancy cases where the life of the mother may be at risk: 

The doctor must always first act to protect the woman — or else both mother and baby’s lives are put at risk together. Commonly discussed cases such as ectopic pregnancy, preterm premature rupture of the membrane (PPROM), and preeclampsia with severe features are just a few of the life-threatening complications a woman can experience during her pregnancy. These conditions are serious, but contrary to the agenda of the loud pro-abortion minority, abortion is not the first line of care

When a physician diagnoses a pregnant woman with a life-threatening complication, they assess the situation and then, unless there is immediate danger to the woman, practice expectant management. Expectant management is the practice of helping the mother to safely carry the pregnancy for as long as possible. Depending on the severity of the condition, physicians will work with the mother to reach 34 or 37-weeks gestational age (about eight months).  

In cases where expectant management is not effective or the life of the mother is in immediate danger, maternal-fetal separation is necessary — yet this is still different from elective abortion, which is never medically necessary. This compassionate and ethical next step is to perform an early delivery, which respects the lives of both mother and child who are both patients of the physician.  

The American Association of Pro-Life OBGYNs notes, “There is relatively little literature on support of women with serious chronic health conditions through pregnancy.” 

Instead, after 50 years of intense indoctrination under Roe, many pro-abortion medical professionals are the unfortunate fruit of what the formal medical education systems and professional medical societies have preached. Due to the influence of this cancerous ruling, these physicians now fail to innovate and reimagine healthcare in its Hippocratic origins.  

And when they refuse to provide the actual healthcare they are trained in to save a pregnant mother’s life (claiming they don’t know what is legally allowed), the lives of their victims rest solely on their hands. These lost lives are not the fault of pro-life laws — they are the sad result of physician activism.  

Pro-abortion medical activists should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for the failure to provide necessary health care.
