Norma McCorvey said being raised in a home that was both Jehovah's Witnesses and Roman Catholic is another story for another time.

But she did tell more than 700 people Thursday (Oct. 29, 1998) about her recent conversion to Catholicism and to the anti-abortion movement at EPS Pregnancy Services' 25th anniversary celebration at the Holiday Convention Centre.

      Ectopic pregnancies, when detected, are usually treated by surgically removing them. I always understood that this procedure was ok for Jehovah's Witnesses. But the subject came up during pioneer school. The circuit overseer started explaining that abortions are NEVER acceptable. A human is a human as soon as conception happens. But then he asks if there is ever a reason to break this rule. So I decided to raise my hand and mention the Reasoning book under Abortion where is says it's up to the individuals involved to make a choice if it's during childbirth. I also mentioned ectopic pregnancies. 
      Well, this didn't go over so well with him. Oooh noooo! He said the information I had was incorrect and the it's NEVER acceptable even if it means death for the mother and that such things don't happen anymore with all the medical advancements. 
      I was very surprised. Especially since ectopic pregnacies have risen. If a JW woman refuses the procedure to have it removed she risks major blood loss and loss of life. I was and still am surprised by his response. I spoke to other elders about it and they either had no idea what an ectopic pregnancy was or if they did they told me it's one of those things where it's acceptable.
      I didn't find ANYTHING talking about ectopic pregnancies in the Watchtower articles. 
      Has anyone here had an ectopic pregnancy? What did the elders say?

      Why would a God that values life so much he forbids having an abortion, even if there is a valid reason, rather have you die than submit to a live-saving blood transfusion, even if there is a valid reason?
