Tubal Pregnancy and Abortion

Tubal Pregnancy and Abortion

A significant increase in tubal (and other ectopic) pregnancies seems to result from an increase in abortions. According to Dr. J. C. Willke, prior abortions can later result in tubal pregnancies in this manner: "If the abortionist’s curette scrapes or cuts too deeply across the opening of the tubes, there is scar formation.... After fertilization, this new human life, many hundred times larger than the sperm, may not be able to get back through the tube if it has been partly scarred closed. Then the tiny baby nests in the tube...."  (Studies documenting the relationship between abortion and tubal pregnancies are cited by Dr. Willke in Abortion: Questions and Answers: scroll down to pages 167-169.)
