Here we are again. As we’ve reported, the talking points against abortion legislation post-Roe v. Wade have been sent out; Halley Berry sent out a list of “abortions” that women will die without, such as miscarriages and ectopic pregnancies. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said not to tell her that doctors in the 1800s knew what ectopic pregnancies were (spoiler: they did). Rep. Ayanna Pressley asked a pro-life witness, “When an ectopic pregnancy ruptures what are the chances it can be carried safely to term?” We suppose that was supposed to be a gotcha question, but the answer is zero, and not even Planned Parenthood considers the treatment of an ectopic pregnancy an abortion. Nobody does.
CNN’s Jim Sciutto fears that doctors don’t know the law, and women are “struggling to receive treatment” for miscarriages and ectopic pregnancies for fear of being prosecuted.

He literally says women who have already miscarried aren't getting treatment. That's 100% nonsense.
