  • What kind of symptoms is she having? Is it an ectopic pregnancy?

  • The only case I've ever heard of this is with the woman I named my daughter after. They made her a saint after she died. Saint Gianna. She had a complicated pregnancy and the doctors told her that she would die if she didn't get an abortion. She chose to sacrifice her own life for her baby's.

  • There are pregnancy complications that can be life threatening. It's hard to say from what you have posted on here.

  • Never heard of this...there's got to be some other medical issues going on for a Doctor to say this. I would think. Sorry...
