30 years ago, I miscarried at 14 weeks. NON-viable is what my OB/GYN said. I had to to to a hospital out of town because St Agnes hospital would not do a D&C. Not in Texas. Drs prescribing a medication that a pharmacist won't fill. Cowards. These are lawyers advising hospitals not to do these procedures. More afraid of controversy and a lawsuit than women's lives. They are just trying to save money.
