Students for Life Call for Compassion for Mothers Suffering Miscarriage & Non Viable Pregnancies

Across the country, pro-life leaders are speaking out in support of robust pro-family policies. Most recently, Tina Whittington of Students for Life, encouraged pro-life Christians to take a compassionate approach to women experiencing miscarriage or a nonviable pregnancy.

Though miscarriage is common—15% of pregnancies end in miscarriage— it doesn’t dull the pain for the mother losing her child. 


But now matters are worse—many of the most common treatments for miscarriage are now banned under new abortion laws politicians passed when Roe v. Wade was overturned. And mothers are left to confront the unthinkable without any medical care. 


How could this be? 


When women go into early labor with an unviable pregnancy, doctors are now prevented from inducing delivery because that is technically an abortion.  Instead the woman is left waiting hours or days until the heartbeat finally stops and the doctors can assist in completing the miscarriage. But this prolonged waiting puts the mothers at high risk for severe complications— including sepsis or ruptures that necessitate a hysterectomy, robbing her of the chance to bring another child into the world. In the worst cases, it can even lead to death. 


It's because of these situations that pro-life leaders are speaking out and calling for compassion. American mothers deserve medical care when they are suffering miscarriages or nonviable pregnancies. 


Anything less is anti-life.
