Abortionist Dr. Henry Morgantaler says that a woman can go into shock during an abortion. He says:
“Shock is a serious condition characterized by a loss of consciousness in an awake patient and by a substantial drop in blood pressure. It may be caused by an overreaction to pain during or after the procedure or by excessive anxiety and nervous tension. Usually under these conditions it does not last long and responds readily to cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
When shock is the result of more serious causes, such as hemorrhage with excessive blood loss or perforation of the uterus, the appropriate measures to treat these complications are indicated and will get the patient out of shock.”
