Woman who took abortion pill: I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy

From a woman who had an abortion by pill (i.e. medical abortion)

“[I] wouldn’t wish that my worst enemy should go through a medical abortion. The pain plus the uncertainty as to whether the abortion had really taken place was awful.”

Vivian Wahlberg Memories After Abortion (Oxford: Radcliffe Publishing, 2007) 32

Woman describes her abortion experience: I couldn’t stop crying

From one woman who had an abortion:

“We got inside to a waiting room. I couldn’t stop crying. I realize now I was looking for help. I was looking for someone to say, “You can have this baby, and it will be okay.”

When they called my name I went into a back room. I was shocked at how many girls were there! Some were very young, and each one looked sad and frightened. I still couldn’t stop crying, and I had difficulty breathing.

A nurse took me out of the room and sat me in an office across the desk from a rather stern looking woman in a nurse’s uniform. She looked over her glasses at me and said, “You don’t seem like you really want to do this. Are you sure about this?”

I told her, “My mom will kill me if she finds out, and I’m afraid because I started doing some drugs.”

She just said, “Okay,” and instructed me to go back into the holding room.…

In one room I was put on the table with stirrups before the doctor breezed in. When he tried to examine me, I couldn’t keep still on the table. He rose to his feet, glared at me over my knees, and yelled at me. “If you don’t spread your legs, you won’t get this abortion.” I started to cry again. His treatment was so shocking and devastating; I knew I had to leave. But I didn’t.”

Former Planned Parenthood president : use “coercion” to reduce population

Alan Guttmacher, who became president of Planned Parenthood in 1962 was also the Vice President of the American Eugenics Society until 1963, He said:

“I would like to give our voluntary means of population control full opportunity in the next 10 to 12 years. Then, if these don’t succeed, we may have to go into some kind of coercion, not worldwide, but possibly in such places as India, Pakistan, and in Indonesia, where pressures are the greatest… There is no question that birth rates can be reduced all over the world if legal abortion is introduced.”

Alan Guttmacher “Family Planning: The Needs and the Methods” The American Journal of Nursing, Vol. 69, no. 6 (June, 1969)

Doctor: ultrasound revealed baby in womb to be “active little creature”

Dr. Michael R Harrison on ultrasound:

“The fetus could not be taken seriously as long as he remained a medical recluse in an opaque womb; and it was not until the last half of this century that the prying eye of the ultrasound rendered the once opaque womb transparent, stripping the veil of mystery from the dark inner sanctum, and letting the light of scientific observation fall on the shy and secretive fetus….Sonography can accurately delineate normal and abnormal fetal anatomy with astounding detail. It can produce not only static images of the intact fetus, but real time “live” moving pictures… The sonographic voyeur, spying on the unwary fetus finds him or her a surprisingly active creature, and not at all the passive parasite we had imagined.”

Black women are “uninvited guests” in pro-choice movement, says writer

From an African American writer on the pro-abortion movement:

“Black women are treated as invited guests in the reproductive rights movement – outsiders to someone else’s event… It all just makes us want to leave and never come back.”

Abortion is good for women “yet unborn” says pro-abortion reverend

Rev. Yvonne Delk, director of the Office of Church and Society of the United Church of Christ, said the following during her speech at the March for Women’s Lives, a pro-abortion demonstration:

“What we say and do today has long reaching implications, not only for the women of color in this nation and for women of color throughout the globe, but it is our legacy to the generations of women who are yet unborn.”

Yvonne Delk “The Time Has Come to Stand Up” Common Ground, Different Planes (Washington DC: Religious Coalition for Abortion Rights, August 1989) 5

{Emphasis mine}

The legacy of abortion is good for unborn women? I don’t think she thought that speech through.

Woman reveals horrible abortion experience

One woman gives an account of her abortion:

“I went to a doctor’s office and picked up literature on “choices.” An abortion was described as a simple procedure… In and out in one afternoon… No complications… Removal of tissue. So I decided to have the “procedure.”…

A nurse strapped my feet into high stirrups, and it began. A doctor, who never spoke to me, forced what felt like the blunt end of a branding iron into my vagina so hard the pain caused my head to jerk backwards against the table. He shoved this metal rod in again, and again, and again. I could feel him scraping inside my uterus. Noise exploded in my head! A roar like a loud vacuum sweeper. A sucking noise like a dentist’s suction instrument. Slapping sounds like someone clapping their hands right next to my ear. I thought it would never end.

I screamed and begged them to stop! I shouted for help! But I wasn’t making a sound; my pleadings were all inside my head. Tears soaked my hair and the table under my head. Finally, the doctor pulled the metal thing out and left the room.…

That night I thrashed around in bed; the whirling, sucking, slapping noises roaring in my head. When I did sleep, horrible nightmarish dreams kept repeating themselves.

Then the crying started. A baby’s cry. I checked Sara [her daughter]. She was sound asleep. I looked everywhere in our tiny apartment for the baby… I realized there was no baby! I slumped to the floor next to my bed sobbing. Every night for months, the baby cried.… I asked myself 1000 times, “How could I have done such a thing? Why did I agree to have an abortion?”

Teenager discovers too late about her baby

From one teenager who had an abortion:

“In my junior year health class I found out that my baby had developed to the point of looking like a person with arms, legs, and a head. And she could feel pain. That knowledge will haunt me for the rest of my life… I would trade every success and milestone in my life to have her back.”
