Abortion provider describes role of nurses in saline abortions

From an abortion provider’s speech at a conference on abortion:

“The procedure for mid-trimester termination was either a saline or prostaglandin injected [into the woman’s womb] to induce labor. The women actually delivered (or aborted) on the ward, either in bed or in a bedpan.

The nurse was left with all the difficult work – you could actually say all the “dirty” work…[T]he nurse had to weigh the fetus, the nurse had to place the fetus in a bag and transport it to a mortuary, the nurse had to clean bed, patients, and any remaining products.

The nurse had to answer patients’ questions, sometimes distressing, about the size, appearance, sex, disposal of the fetus, and whether it was still alive. The nurse had to deal with distressed patients and relatives…”
