The Good News Is Out: Abortion Restrictions Won’t Kill Anyone

After giving birth for 30 years, Dr. Brent Boles can say with certainty that an abortion is not necessary to save a woman’s life.

In a recent interview with Boles and Lila Rose, the Live Action president agreed that “intentionally killing a baby is never medical treatment.”

The conversation between Rose and Boles, a board-certified obstetrician/gynecologist and medical director of Heartbeat International’s Abortion Pill Rescue® Network (APRN), gave truthful information about the medical care women will continue to receive even when induced abortions are limited after Dobbs decision.

Rose pointed out that abortion proponents are spreading fear “right now about why it’s wrong that Roe vs. Wade was overthrown, claiming that women will die.

Boles started the interview precisely defining induced abortion as “the use of a drug or procedure to terminate the life of a living, intrauterine and unborn child and empty the uterus because the pregnancy does not is not desired”.

“The sole purpose of abortion is to ensure that the baby is completely dead before it is completely delivered,” he said.

If the baby is no longer alive, or was implanted somewhere other than the womb, or was born prematurely alive and receiving medical care, the procedure is not an induced abortion .

Abortion adds unnecessary risk

Boles noted a few extremely rare scenarios where a mother’s life is in danger during pregnancy, and even in those cases it is premature labor, not induced abortion.

And whether it was that situation or the pregnancy ended early naturally, Boles said that if the mother needed medical attention, medical professionals would take care of her while working to deliver the baby in a way safe for both, without breaking the law. .

“The things that abortionists do to end the life of the child before delivering it are never necessary when a woman is sick and her life is in danger,” Boles explained. “In fact, they just add risk.”

“The last place on planet Earth she needs to be is in an abortion clinic, where there’s only the abortion doctor,” he said. “There’s no anesthetist, there’s no cardiologist or intensive care doctor, or pulmonologist, no intensive care unit.”

Hospitals will in no way be prohibited from carrying out premature deliveries because the life of the mother is in danger.

“And there is currently, to my knowledge, no law on the books that will prevent an obstetrician from caring for an obstetrical patient by doing all that he must do other than specifically causing the death of the child as the goal of treatment,” says Boles.

“In all of these situations, women need real medical care, not an abortion,” he added.

Treating an ectopic pregnancy is not an abortion

Regarding ectopic pregnancies, Rose noted, “a lot of people are really scared right now who I think have been misled.”

Boles explained that the baby cannot survive anywhere in a woman’s body outside of the womb.

“Ectopic just means ‘a different place,'” he said, “defined as the condition in which an egg is fertilized, but instead of moving to the uterus where it’s supposed to grow and mature, it s ‘establish elsewhere.

Removal of an ectopic pregnancy, even if there is a heartbeat, is necessary to save the mother. If the pregnancy continues, the baby will also die.

“There has never been a law that has hindered the treatment of an ectopic pregnancy,” Boles said. “There is no heartbeat for most of these ectopic pregnancies. The baby has died, but the placenta continues to grow.

Boles pointed out that not even Planned Parenthood and the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology call for the removal of an ectopic pregnancy abortion.

Treating a woman for a miscarriage is not an abortion

Rose revealed another circulating lie that “even tries to blur the moral lines between choosing to kill your baby and dealing with the tragic loss of your baby.”

Boles noted of abortion proponents how, “They focus on the fact that medical terminology calls a miscarriage a spontaneous abortion. [It is] the result of a problem that allows the pregnancy to expire and be lost naturally and spontaneously.

However, in a miscarriage, no one intentionally kills a baby. The baby dies of natural causes.

Medications, or the dilation and curettage (D&C) procedure, may be needed to help the mother push out the remains or the placenta. Abortionists imitate these procedures, but do not make the treatment of a miscarriage an induced abortion.

Boles said it’s “immoral – to twist this and make women who have had a miscarriage think they’ve done something wrong by having a D&C take care of that miscarriage. is atrocious, to twist the facts in such a way.

Rose agreed.

“The removal of this baby is not an abortion,” she said. “No one disputes that on the pro-life side.”

Abortion is not a cancer treatment

Some people mistakenly say that pro-life laws will prevent pregnant women from getting cancer treatment.

Boles discussed situations where a pregnancy might need to be terminated to treat certain forms of cancer, such as advanced cervical cancer.

“In this situation, if the child is past the age of viability, where he could survive, just give birth,” he said. “Let the NICU take care of the baby, then treat the woman.”

In rare circumstances the baby may need to be delivered before viability for the mother to survive, but in most forms of cancer it is not necessary to terminate the pregnancy before the baby can survive.

Boles noted that in these cases “a multidisciplinary team of maternal-fetal medicine specialists and oncologists can come up with a treatment plan” for the baby and the mother.

Pro-life laws won’t kill women

Every state that has passed laws restricting abortion can treat women for life-threatening medical conditions, ectopic pregnancy, miscarriage or cancer.

The good news is that even if abortion became illegal everywhere, no woman would die from it.

“Good midwifery will care for the patient in a way that is safe for the mother and optimizes the circumstances for the baby,” Boles said.

Misrepresentations about abortion from abortion advocates could make women fearful of going to the emergency room when they need help for a miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, or life-threatening illness, did he declare.

In these cases, he said, abortion advocates “seek to use women’s tragic circumstances to make a political point.”

“These people are not women’s advocates,” Boles said. “They are pro-abortionists.”
