An OB-GYN and medical researcher urged the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to reverse course on its decision to end in-person medical supervision for abortion drugs after a new report warns emergency room doctors to watch for potentially life-threatening undetected ectopic pregnancies.
Dr. Ingrid Skop, an OB-GYN for more than 25 years and a senior fellow with the Charlotte Lozier Institute, spoke with the Christian Post this week about how dangerous abortion drugs can be for pregnant mothers as well as their unborn babies, especially if taken without medical supervision.
In late 2021, the Biden administration got rid of a requirement that the abortion drug mifepristone be provided to women in person by a medical professional. Now, abortion businesses are selling abortion drugs through the mail without ever seeing the woman.
Many doctors and pro-life leaders warned that this decision would put unborn babies and mothers at an increased risk. Then last week, The New England Journal of Medicine published an article urging emergency room doctors to watch for ectopic pregnancy signs in patients who come in after taking abortion drugs.
Skop told the Christian Post that abortion drugs are not a treatment for an ectopic pregnancy because they “exert their action on the uterus” and an ectopic pregnancy occurs outside of the uterus. The condition can be life-threatening if not treated.
One of the many problems with removing the in-person supervision requirement is that the effects of the abortion drugs and symptoms of an ectopic pregnancy are similar, Skop continued.
