What is an entopic pregnancy?

An ectopic pregnancy is when the egg does not finish traveling down the fallopian tubes before joining with the sperm and creating the fetus.

These types of pregnancies have to be terminated, because its impossible to move the fetus and keep it undamaged (aka alive), and if the fetus continues to grow in the tubes, it will kill the Mother and the baby.
