Dr. Skop is a Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, where she uses science and statistics to counter pro-abortion agendas, and is a lifetime member of the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
Prior to joining Charlotte Lozier Institute, Dr. Skop served for over 25 years in private practice in San Antonio, where she delivered more than 5,000 babies and personally cared for many women who had been harmed, physically and emotionally, from complications due to abortion. She continues to serve as Medical Director of Any Woman Can, a pregnancy resource center that provides support and free counseling to women in crisis. She also serves as medical director and board member of The Source in Austin and Houston, a consortium of full-service women’s centers with a Christian worldview.
Dr. Skop’s research on maternal mortality, abortion, and women’s health has been published in multiple peer-reviewed journals.
