7. An example, in real terms

A fertilized egg implanted in my fallopian tube. Technically, I was pregnant -- a pregnancy test was even positive. The egg grew until it ruptured the tube and I was minutes away from bleeding to death. Fortunately, I was in a hospital and had a doctor who understood that the fertilized egg would die either way: either by being removed or upon my death. My life was saved by a speedy removal of the egg and the ruptured tube.

My fear has always been that a strict no abortion law or a personhood law would doom women with ectopic pregnancies to death.

Do these people have no conscience at all? Is their hatred of women so vast that withholding desperately needed medical care satisfies them? What kind of warped thinking is this? If THEIR wives, daughters, sisters were in this position, would they recommend standing by and letting them die? I fear their answer is yes.
