OB-GYN: EMTALA Decision Will Force Doctors to End Patients’ Lives Through Elective Abortions

Washington, D.C.In response to the U.S Supreme Court’s opinion in Idaho v. United States (also called Moyle v. United States), Ingrid Skop, M.D., FACOG, a board-certified OB-GYN who serves as vice president and director of medical affairs at Charlotte Lozier Institute, reacted:

“I am disappointed that SCOTUS has not rejected the Biden administration’s blatant attempt to hijack a law that protects mothers and babies. Throughout my 30-year career, EMTALA has never confused me or my obstetric peers when providing emergency care, especially considering 90% of obstetricians do not perform elective abortions. I have always – before Dobbs, and since – been able and willing to intervene if a pregnancy complication threatened my patient’s life, and every state pro-life law allows us to act. Forcing doctors to end an unborn patient’s life by abortion in the absence of a threat to his mother’s life is coercive, needless and goes against our oath to do no harm.”

Dr. Skop is a co-author of an in-depth analysis of every pro-life state law and its protections for the life of the mother. Twenty-four states have laws protecting babies in the womb at 12 weeks or sooner. Every one of them allows women to receive care in the event of a miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy or other medical emergency.

Charlotte Lozier Institute earlier this year filed a brief supporting Attorney General Raúl Labrador’s defense of Idaho’s law protecting unborn children. During oral arguments, even Pres. Biden’s solicitor general admitted that abortion is not the standard of care starting at the point of viability, saying, “There can be complications that happen after viability, but there, the standard of care is to deliver the baby.”

 

Charlotte Lozier Institute was launched in 2011 as the education and research arm of Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America. CLI is a hub for research and public policy analysis on some of the most pressing issues facing the United States and nations around the world. The Institute is named for a feminist physician known for her commitment to the sanctity of human life and equal career and educational opportunities for women.
