Ingrid Skop, M.D. received her Bachelor of Science in physiology from Oklahoma State University, and her medical doctorate from Washington University School of Medicine. She completed her residency in obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. Dr. Skop is a Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and a Board Member of the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists (AAPLOG). In over 20 years of private practice, she has cared for many women who have been harmed, physically and emotionally, from complications due to abortion. She has provided expert witness testimony to the Texas legislature in favor of restrictions on the procedure of abortion in order to enhance patient safety. She firmly believes that women are best served by education and effective contraception, in order to reduce the rates of unintended pregnancy and abortion. Toward that goal, she serves on the board of Healthy Futures of Texas, which provides high school and college level sex education emphasizing abstinence, reliable contraception, healthy relationships and good decision making. Starting fall 2018, she will also serve as Chairman of the Board of Any Woman Can, a pregnancy resource center that provides support and free counseling to women in crisis. She is also active on the San Antonio Maternal Morbidity and Mortality Committee, and Impact San Antonio, a women’s philanthropic organization. She and her husband, Brian, a psychiatrist, are proud parents of two sons and a daughter.
