The blog JivinJehosaphat quotes from an article on ABC (now unavailable) about a young woman who claims she was forcibly held down and forced to have an abortion after she changed her mind,
The information comes from Caitlin Bruce’s lawsuit against abortionist Abraham Alberto Hodari. (who years later lost his licence for malpractice) She was 18 years old and 6 weeks pregnant when she went for her abortion.

“I was nervous and I really didn’t have the moral support I needed. And I just didn’t know what to do,” Bruce said.
Bruce says she wrestled with her decision in the waiting room.
“They started the ultrasound. The lady turned the ultrasound toward me and said, ‘This is your baby. This is the heart flicker,'” Bruce said.
Bruce says that’s when she changed her mind. But she claims Dr. Abraham Hodari did the procedure anyway.
“He told his assistant, ‘Hold her down.’ They had my arm pinned,” Bruce said….
“My client acted properly under the circumstance. This was an abortion that was consented to,” said Steve Weiss, Hodari’s attorney.
“When the patient first expressed misgivings about it, it was too far along for Dr. Hodari to stop.”
