Ingrid Skop, M.D., FACOG

Vice President and Director of Medical Affairs

Ingrid Skop, M.D., FACOG, is Vice President and Director of Medical Affairs for Charlotte Lozier Institute, leveraging more than 30 years’ experience as a practicing obstetrician-gynecologist to support research and policies that respect the dignity of every human life.

Dr. Skop 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 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 has served as board member and medical director for pregnancy resource centers in San Antonio, Austin, and Houston. 

Dr. Skop’s research on maternal mortality, abortion, and women’s health has been published in multiple peer-reviewed journals. Additionally, she has provided expert testimony at both the state and federal levels on legislation related to abortion, including standing firm against prominent pro-abortion politicians who choose not to follow the science regarding fetal heartbeat and development.

Dr. Skop is married to a physician and is the proud mother of two sons and a daughter.

Fact Check: “Abortion is 14 Times Safer than Childbirth”

The false claim that abortion is 14 times safer than childbirth arose from a 2012 journal article by two vocal abortion advocates, Elizabeth Raymond and David Grimes. Despite being debunked in the dozen years since, it continues to be repeated by pro-abortion media advocates. This issue of On Women's Health explains numerous reasons this statement is false and not data-driven.

Chemical Abortion

Chemical Abortion Explainer

It is a scientific fact that the embryo or fetus within the mother’s womb is a distinct human being, and, consequently, abortion ends the life of that human being.

Fact Sheet: Miscarriage Management with Mifepristone

If mifepristone is unavailable, patients will not suffer, for there are several other effective options available for treating a miscarriage. Fearmongering about an inability to treat miscarriages in the aftermath of Dobbs should be recognized for the ideologically driven, pro-abortion rhetoric that it is.

Why We Need Federal Limits on Late Abortion to Protect Both Mother and Child

Most on the left vehemently oppose any legislative limits on abortion, and some on the right, even if they identify as pro-life, are of the opinion that a federal limit on late abortions would fail to find consensus and so could not be passed.

Twelve Reasons Women’s Health and Maternal Mortality Will Not Worsen, and May Improve, in States with Abortion Limits

Limiting abortion will not prohibit any life-saving medical interventions, as is clearly shown by every pro-life state law having exceptions for the life of the mother.
