A chemical pregnancy is a clinical term for a very early miscarriage. It happens before an ultrasound could even detect a heartbeat (before the 5th week of gestation). This occurs when an egg is fertilized but it does not implant on the uterine wall. Chemical pregnancies are actually quite common, occurring in 50 - 60% of first pregnancies. [source]
Studies reveal that anywhere from 10-25% of all clinically recognized pregnancies will end in miscarriage. [source]
And that their efforts to have life defined as beginning at conception puts women at risk of being put in JAIL if they have a miscarriage (something that happens to nearly 1:4 pregnancies) Like when it happened here. Or Here. Or these times.
Pro-life movements are literally making it more dangerous than ever for people to be pregnant, not just medically, but legally.
