Former Clinic Worker: Marleen

Marleen  worked in a hospital that performed abortions. After 30 years, she’s come forward with her story.

“My husband was a resident at a hospital and I just got “the job of my dreams” at a nearby Oakland hospital.  I was very much a believer in the abortion issue and now I felt I was going to be part of it.

I got hired as a charge nurse at this clinic that did late term abortions.  I spent about 30 days on the day shift getting familiar with everything.  I would witness and assist the doctor in the actual procedure, injection of drugs to the fetus, the seaweed, etc.  On the day shift I really never saw the actual start of the contractions or the termination process.  I was uncomfortable, but I really thought to myself, this was something new and I needed to get more experience.

One evening a young girl was having a very difficult time.  I was there with the doctor.  I knew even though the doctor wrote this patient was 15 weeks, she was close to 30 weeks.  This happened quite a bit, but no one ever said anything.

When she delivered this tiny baby (it looked full term to me) she was actually alive and crying.  The doctor said to me, “Put it in the room and close the door.  Do not enter til the morning shift.”  I immediately took the crying baby and wrapped it up and laid it in a room.  I then immediately started calling hospitals around (against the doctor’s wishes) to find someone that would take it.  None around would take it cause they said it was not viable.  I spent many hours trying.  I just wanted to leave this place, but I knew I could not walk out and leave other patients without a charge nurse.  Til this day I hear this crying infant in my head.

I wish others that promote abortion, especially late term would experience what I did.  The next day, I terminated my employment immediately and landed a job in a pediatric unit at another hospital.”
