Ectopic Pregnancies and Pro Life Stances

The New York Times covers the state of affairs in El Salvador, where ectopic pregancies (where the egg becomes embedded in the fallopian tube, rather than the uterus) cannot be terminated “until fetal death or a rupture of the fallopian tube.”
When you read a bit more about them, it becomes apparent that ectopic pregnancies are not viable. The babie will die, and the danger to the mother’s life is very high, especially with a fallopian tube rupture. So the idea that you can’t terminate a such a dangerous situation is just crazed.
