Abortion clinic worker denies that preborn baby has a heartbeat

Sarah Allen shares her abortion experience:

“The councilor [sic] asked me if I wanted an abortion & I said yes. I was not told what would happen during the procedure. . . . He told me where to sign. Even when I was in the little room to get the ultrasound so they could see how far along I was, the girl didn’t speak to me. She was talking to a girl, training her I guess, and I looked at the monitor & asked ‘Where’s the heartbeat?’ All she said was ‘There isn’t one.’ And she turned the monitor so I couldn’t see and ignored me the rest of the time.”

AMICUS CURIAE BRIEF WHOLE WOMAN’S HEALTH, et al., Petitioners, v. JOHN HELLERSTEDT, M.D., COMMISSIONER OF THE TEXAS DEPARTMENT OF STATE HEALTH SERVICES, et al., OF 3,348 WOMEN INJURED BY ABORTION AND THE JUSTICE FOUNDATION IN SUPPORT OF RESPONDENTS FOR AFFIRMANCE

New research shows that a preborn baby’s heart starts beating as early as 16 days after conception.

Before this new research, the time given for the babies heartbeat was about 21 days. Here  you can see a video of a baby’s heart beating at four weeks after conception. Surgical abortions are usually not performed until the seventh week. It is impossible that her baby did not have a heartbeat.
