Nursing journal says handling aborted babies is a “challenging clinical event” for nurses

An article in the Journal of Clinical Nursing says:

“… the New Zealand situation would be common in that nurses are frequently required to clean and dress the fetus, ensure transfer to an appropriate receptacle if the mother wants to see it, all the while supporting the woman as she goes through this process. This often occurs after a lengthy period when the women and nurses have been intimately connected, working through a range of decisions such as whether the mother wants to see, and perhaps name or photograph the fetus. Consequently, although women undergoing mid-trimester termination are `well’, this is a challenging clinical event that requires much from nurses in terms of physiological and psychological skill and expertise.”

Pro-Abortion activist “grieved and went wild” after her own abortion

Pro-Abortion activist Jan Wilberg had an illegal abortion with a wire in 1967. She writes about suffering grief and guilt:

“I grieved and was wild for a full year after that. I broke up with my boyfriend, realizing right away that any man who would advocate the wire wasn’t lifetime commitment material. I drank too much, bounced from guy to guy, and remember not much from that time except long times in the shower crying in grief and guilt. For years, I counted the days and months — how old the child would be if the pregnancy had not been terminated. The guilt was overwhelming. But as I matured, I recognized the decision for what it was, what I believed was right. I accepted responsibility and forgave myself. In the truest terms, I did what I had to do.”

A post-abortive woman named Jasmine wrote:

“I was nine weeks pregnant. There was no counseling offered, just a leaflet telling me that I might feel a little upset, but that it was hormonal and would pass…”

Chinese one child policy is compassionate, says pro-choicer

Sarah G. Epstein, a member of the advisory board of the Population Institute, a pro-abortion organization, wrote that:

“The Chinese system is both compassionate and fair. For example, if an oldest child is handicapped, the family can have a second child with all the privileges of an only child. If both parents are only children, the same thing. If the parents belong to minority groups (5 percent of the population), they can have more than one child, with all the benefits of an only child. … Let us work out a rational population policy for our own country and respect policies of other countries that are dealing humanely with the critical need to slow population growth”

Post-abortion woman keeps looking for missing daughter

One post-abortion woman said:

“Night times were terrible for nearly a year with getting up in my sleep looking for my daughter then when fully awakened I found I had a son and no daughter and why in the world was I in such a panic looking everywhere for a baby girl. I have a daughter now and she has said many times she thought she was supposed to have an older sister and wept bitterly when I told her she was correct and that it was her father and me who decided to abort.”

Abortionist talks about “uteri with holes” from abortion

Abortionist William J. Sweeney III wrote:

“Now, as long as we stay inside the uterus, everything’s okay. But if we put that suction apparatus outside – if we happen to perforate that soft uterus – then the machine can suck out lots of things, like a lady’s intestines. The liberal press doesn’t tell you about all the uteri that have holes in them and those that have been removed. So I don’t think it ought to be said that abortions are the benign little procedures people would like them to be.”

Pro-Choice man: Abortion is a handy “escape hatch” for men

A man who identified  himself only as CH wrote about the reasons he loves abortion:

“Abortion is a handy dandy escape hatch for men.

Sure, men aren’t the ultimate judge, jury and executioner of the fetus; that is a special privilege afforded only women — for now. (I’d like to see men have the legal right to abort their financial responsibility for any unwanted pregnancies. In the interest of fairness, you see.) But men have the next best thing — an open invitation and legal sanction for women to do the dirty work and absolve them of 18 years of imprisonment. It’s a bit of a crapshoot to rely on a woman’s whim, but it’s leagues better than accidentally impregnating a woman and having zero recourse to rectify the situation…. Pro-choice means pro-player….

Abortion keeps a woman’s body looking hot. Nuff said.”

Pro-choice author: Scientific advances helped pro-life movement

A  pro-abortion writer wrote the following in Time magazine:

“The antiabortion cause has been aided by scientific advances that have complicated American attitudes about abortion. Prenatal ultrasound, which has allowed the general public to see fetuses inside the womb and understand that they have a human shape beginning around eight weeks into pregnancy, became widespread in the 1980s, and some babies born as early as 24 weeks can now survive.”
