Former Clinic Worker: Molly Graham

Molly Graham [pseudonym] had several abortions and then worked as an anesthesiologist for an abortion provider. She describes an incident where a baby was born alive:

“The last time I gave anesthesia for an abortion, it was to be a hysterotomy [a C-section abortion, where the baby is removed and set aside to die, seldom performed today,] because the woman was about 6 ½ to 7 months pregnant. I put her to sleep as usual, the incision was made in the abdomen, then into the uterus, and a baby was pulled out – I mean a fully developed, moving, breathing baby. It hit me like a ton of bricks – the baby was put into a bucket of water and drowned. I was shaken; I knew at that moment I’d stood silently by and condoned murder, not only this time, but many times before. I told my boss I would no longer give anesthesia for abortions and was removed from those duties.”
