Friday #Medthread—some long overdue physician-related advocacy and reflections especially with the #AlabamaAbortionBan and #GeorgiaAbortionBan.
For the record, and if you couldn’t clearly tell from my twitter feed, I am prochoice. CHOICE. As a woman and a physician... 1/x
Beyond “advocacy as a physician”, what is my experience providing care for women who choose to seek abortions? I’m not an OBgyn, so I can imagine folks saying, “how are you qualified to comment on this as a physician”... 2/x
And brief terminology interlude. Full disclaimer. . I say “women” but this not does ignore the fact that gender identity other than “woman” does exist amongst patients seeking & needing abortions—ex FTM, gender non binary, gender queer...but I will use “women” in this thread 3/x

I want to talk about the #GeorgiaAbortionBan. I was living in Georgia when I was pregnant with my first child. Easy pregnancy. I did everything I was supposed to do. The baby was late. Not a big deal. I was healthy. I was a first time mom. The OB pushed for inducement.
I didn't want to do that if there was no medical need. Finally we agreed that when I was two weeks past due, we'd induce. Again. No issues. No reason to think anything was wrong.
A few days before the scheduled induction, I woke up in labor and gushing blood. I was rushed to the hospital. There was no fetal heartbeat. I wanted this baby. I planned this baby. I needed this baby. And my baby was dead.
