Medical Student: Abortion Is “Invasive” and “Gruesome”

Medical student Lesley Wojick learned how to do a suction abortion by practicing with the instruments and a papaya.

Of the real abortion she witnessed, she says:

“It was definitely gruesome. You could make out what a fetus could look like, tiny feet, lungs…”

She goes on to say:

“It’s a lot more invasive than I thought. A papaya doesn’t bleed and scream.” Women do.”
