Pro-Abortion Lies Make Woman With a History of Miscarriages Not Want to Have a Baby

The pro-abortion movement is scaring women with lies about pro-life laws and maternal health care, so much so that one Tennessee woman decided to stop trying to have more children after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health in June.

Neither the Tennessee abortion ban nor any other pro-life law prohibits or limits medical care for miscarriages, ectopic pregnancies or other medical problems during pregnancy. They ban the elective and unnecessary killing of unborn babies in abortions.

But Fanny Sung, a mother from the Nashville area, told WLPN recently that she and her husband decided to quit trying for a fourth child out of fear that she might have to travel to another state for medical care if she suffers another miscarriage.

“I feel very fortunate to have the family that I have and we’re all healthy,” Sung told the news station. “And it feels greedy almost to kind of push for another.”

Sung said she had three miscarriages in one year, and, in one case, took medicine to complete the miscarriage, according to the report. She and her husband appear to believe the Tennessee abortion ban, which is protecting thousands of unborn babies from abortion, would prevent doctors from providing similar care if she suffers another miscarriage.

Here’s more:

Fanny says she wanted to keep trying — she has always wanted four kids.

But then the Supreme Court decision tipped the scales.

“Once the decision was made, it felt like it just added another layer of complication on something that was already so complicated,” she says. “There was just this extra barrier.”

Fanny just turned 40, and didn’t want to risk being forced to cross state lines if there were problems with her pregnancy. She knows it’s just one example of the ways that overturning Roe alters someone’s life.

She said she feels angry for other mothers in similar situations.

But her anger and fears are misplaced, and abortion activists are to blame. Lies and misleading information about pro-life laws have become prevalent on social media and in mainstream news outlets. Celebrities like Chrissy Teigen and politicians like Stacey Abrams have promoted the misinformation, along with numerous pro-abortion activists.

Many doctors have been speaking out about the misinformation, saying it’s causing unnecessary fear and danger for women. In a recent interview with The Spectator, several doctors said these abortion falsehoods are putting women’s lives at risk. They accused some of their abortion-supporting colleagues of putting politics ahead of their patients.

Even a Texas abortionist admitted to U.S. Congress in September that pro-life laws allow treatment for ectopic pregnancies.

“To date and to my knowledge, there are no laws that outlaw care for ectopic pregnancies,” said Bhavik Kumar, the medical director for primary and trans care for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast.

A fact check from the Charlotte Lozier Institute came to the same conclusions, with researchers pointing out that pro-life laws protect both mom and baby and “pregnant women’s lives are protected in all states.”

Dr. Ingrid Skop and Mary E. Harned, J.D. of the Charlotte Lozier Institute conducted extensive research into the issue earlier this year, including analyses of state pro-life laws, abortion, and miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy care. They found that all state pro-life laws permit “abortion in those rare and heartbreaking circumstances when it is necessary to save the life of a pregnant woman,” including for miscarriages and ectopic pregnancies.

Skop and Harned said the misinformation from abortion activists, not the pro-life laws, is what is causing fear and putting women’s lives in danger.

“A plain reading of any of these statutes easily refutes the false and dangerous misinformation being spread by pro-abortion activists,” they wrote.

Yet, the lies persist. Abortion activists claim to care about women, but they are hurting families like Sung’s by spreading lies about pro-life laws. Pro-life advocates value mothers as well as unborn babies, and they support laws that protect them both.
