ObGyn on having an abortion

ObGyn William J. Sweeney III, wrote:

“In some hospitals [that do abortions] …the patient is conscious. I wouldn’t be able to stand it, to lie there and listen to this suction thing go sworrpp and then hear something splash into the bottle on top of the machine. It’s bad enough for a doctor to hear, but how must the woman feel, knowing that splash was her fetus or baby that just got sucked out of her? Not only that, but in a lot of places the bottle sitting up there on the machine isn’t changed between abortions… To save time, many clinics just let the bottle fill up. Can you imagine walking into a room where there was a bloody bottle full of other people’s abortions?”
