Interview Opportunity: Veteran Texas OB/GYN Provides Clarity on Texas Pro-Life “Trigger” Law Which Takes Effect August 25th
Board-Certified OB/GYN Says “Plain Reading” of Texas Law Easily Refutes Claims of Confusion by Pro-Abortion Activists
Washington, D.C. – Dr. Ingrid Skop, M.D., a board-certified OB/GYN who has delivered more than 5,000 babies in Texas over the past 25 years, says that misinformation from Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion activists regarding the upcoming Texas Human Life Protection Act is putting women at risk. She is available this week for media interviews to provide clarity about how the “trigger law,” which takes effect this Thursday, August 25th, will impact medical care in Texas.
Dr. Skop has studied the Texas Heartbeat Act (2021) and Texas Human Life Protection Act (2022, sometimes referred to as the “trigger law”) and compared both laws to the standard medical guidance provided OB/GYNs by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. According to Dr. Skop, a plain reading of the law shows no provisions which would prohibit a physician from providing necessary medical care in the event of ectopic pregnancy, miscarriage, or a life-threatening pregnancy complication.
