An intact dead baby is good for research

British author Mary Kenny describes an abortion by induction:

“Prostaglandin abortion is also a more distressful experience for the woman. The procedure takes between twelve and thirty-six hours to complete. The woman endures the contractions and pains of labor, and delivers at the end of it, what she may perceive (if she actually sees it, which she may do) as a dead baby….. From a laboratory viewpoint, the delivery of a foetus intact is more useful than a dismembered foetus. Better research can be done on a foetus which is in one piece and if it happens to be abnormal, more can be learned from it when it is delivered whole.”

Kenny witnessed several prostaglandin abortions that day.
