Here’s a bill that puts the life of the mother in jeopardy to do something that’s scientifically impossible to save the “life” of a clump of cells.
A bill to ban abortion introduced in the Ohio state legislature requires doctors to “reimplant an ectopic pregnancy” into a woman’s uterus – a procedure that does not exist in medical science – or face charges of “abortion murder”.
So, this is medically impossible and will save exactly zero embryos. The entire purpose of this is to force women who need this life-saving procedure to endure painful, unnecessary surgery. Why? To punish them for being female and for having sex.
Is this being reported wrong? Am I missing something? or are Ohio Republicans saying “if you have an ectopic pregnancy we think you should either die or go to prison”?
I’m an OBGYN qualified 26 years. Reimplanting an ectopic pregnancy is scientifically & clinically impossible. It’s NEVER been done. This is just barbaric. Reproductive rights are human rights & the fight is global. #freesafelegal #abortionsaveslives
I cannot fully express how furious this idiotic and dangerous move has made me: Ohio bill orders doctors to ‘reimplant ectopic pregnancy’ or face 'abortion murder' charges
How. How. How. How is this not trending globally? Instead Cyber Monday is. Ohio is ordering doctors to ‘reimplant ectopic pregnancy’ or face murder charges. They’re forcing doctors to preform a procedure that does NOT EXIST in medical science. I can’t.
This is not a thing. Reimplanting an ectopic pregnancy is not a thing that happens. It's not scientifically or medically possible. JFC, Ohio, pull it together. Ohio bill orders doctors to ‘reimplant ectopic pregnancy’ or face 'abortion murder' charges
A new bill from Ohio Republicans would require doctors to “reimplant an ectopic pregnancy” into a woman’s uterus—procedure that does not exist in medical science—or face charges of “abortion murder,” which isn’t a thing. This isn’t their real goal, though.
Defo think feminism has gone too far
Stop 👏🏻 writing 👏🏻 bills 👏🏻 about 👏🏻 medicine 👏🏻 without 👏🏻 consulting 👏🏻 doctors. #medtwitter #psychtwitter

The is ramping up their #WarOnWomen in Ohio: The Republican legislature introduces one of the most extreme anti-choice bills to date for a procedure that does not exist in medical science.
Both sides journalism requires us to take the Republican viewpoint seriously for their bill that defies medical science and could kill women. That flies in the face of journalism's goal to provide accurate information. More outlets must grapple with this.

This is obscene, insane and cruel. Where is the #RightToLife for women with #EctopicPregnancy who will die if untreated?
This is insane and medically impossible. Ohio bill orders doctors to ‘reimplant ectopic pregnancy’ or face 'abortion murder' charges
7 years ago I almost died from an ectopic pregnancy. There was no viable embryo when the Fallopian tube exploded. And there is no way to “implant” it in the uterus. This bill either ensures the mother’s death or incarceration. What the hell.

Today's news from the Republic of Gilead
This procedure doesn't exist. Furthermore, ectopic pregnancy is a life-threatening EMERGENCY! As ER doctor, diagnosing this emergency is top of my screening as it is for other medics. Medically & ethically, saving a pregnant woman's life is priority.
Ohio hospitals and doctors need to speak out against this attack on women’s health. I’ve written to my state representative and Governor DeWine. #Thisisourlane Ohio bill orders doctors to ‘reimplant ectopic pregnancy’ or face 'abortion murder' charges

Ohio bill orders doctors to ‘reimplant ectopic pregnancy’ or face 'abortion murder' charges 1. Republicans hate science. 2. They are in favor of big government that controls women’s bodies. 3. They hate freedom, as long as its freedom for women.
The ignorance of the anti-abortion lobby is a public health threat. Sponsors & cosponsors of this bill have openly demonstrated they're willing to act without understanding in ways that endanger the public & they should be immediately removed from office
So...some legislators in Ohio wrote a bill to require doctors to "re-implant" ectopic pregnancies and no pro-life groups were available to comment and honestly say this is NOT POSSIBLE?
I don’t even have words for this. “Ohio bill orders doctors to ‘reimplant ectopic pregnancy’ or face 'abortion murder' charges”
Jesus Christ!! Do you know how many women who are trying to conceive WISH that this was possible - the physical and emotional pain of an ectopic pregnancy is awful, but criminalising it?! FFS

So now we have lawmakers playing doctors in this country: mandating medical procedures that do not actually exist, endangering the lives of women. Send them back to school to learn some basic physiology & anatomy & common sense.
A disturbing read about a bill that would put many women’s lives in danger. With a wave of extreme anti-abortion bills being introduced across the United States, the humanist message is clear: women should't be denied control over their own bodies.
Absolutely barking mad.

Ohio bill orders doctors to ‘reimplant ectopic pregnancy’ or face 'abortion murder' charges | US news | The Guardian Staggering ignorance. No doubt at least one senior Tory would agree with this. Any guesses as to which one?
Re-implanting ectopic pregnancies is obviously absurd and won't be passed, but this shouldn't distract ppl from the bill's proposed near-universal ban on abortion, which might be passed. The anchoring effect.
