A proposal in the state of Ohio that is aiming to outlaw abortions would present some doctors with the tough choice between facing potential criminal prosecution, or attempting a procedure considered medically impossible: the re-implantation of an ectopic pregnancy.
If the proposed new law passes, a doctor who terminates a pregnancy could face murder charges under the Republican-sponsored bill unless it is done to save a woman’s life. Even then, the proposal says doctors could be prosecuted unless they do whatever they can to save the child, including trying to move an ectopic pregnancy into the woman’s uterus.
Ohio appears to be the first state where lawmakers have incorporated the idea into proposed law, as the Buckeye State has become a sort of testing ground for new abortion restrictions in recent years. The bill was introduced last month and referred to a committee that has yet to hear testimony on it.
