Saline abortion procedure


The first thing he did was withdraw 60 cc’s of amniotic fluid. At that point I started to feel afraid for my baby. I could feel her thrashing about, scared by this intrusion. I wanted to scream out, “Please, stop. Don’t do this to me!” But I just couldn’t get it out. I was petrified with fear.


After the fluid was withdrawn, he injected 200 cc’s of the saline solution–half a pint of concentrated salt solution. From then on, it was terrible. My baby began thrashing about–it was like a regular boxing match in there. She was in pain. The saline was burning her skin, her eyes, her throat. It was choking her, making her sick. She was in agony, trying to escape. She was scared and confused at how her wonderful little home had suddenly been turned into a death trap.



This testimony was originally published in 1987 in the book "Aborted Women, Silent No More".

So sad. So, so sad.

Forcing women to do anything is wrong. No wonder she was so traumatised, she was bullied into having an abortion when she didn't want to.

I don't think the procedure is forced on anyone...the doctors falsely assure the patients that their baby is not a baby as yet...that it has no feelings...the whole thing is so heartless...

First of all, this woman should have researched this procedure fully before coming to any conclusion. When she agreed to have the doctor do this abortion it was HER decision. No one else's. If she wanted the doctor to stop she should have said "stop." It was her decision so the consequences are on her shoulders only. Doctors may say the sky is purple, but it is up to the patient to decide their course of action.

It is not the fault of the doctor. The mother CHOSE to have an abortion. All side effects are her fault. And it sounds like she really loves her baby in that testimony. SO WHY IN THE WORLD IS SHE HAVING AN ABORTION IN THE FIRST PLACE?
