Woman tells of forced abortion

Catherine Glenn Foster, president of Americans United for Life, was 19 when she had abortion. She changed her mind, but was forced by abortion workers to go through with the abortion:

“I went into that center because I thought I had no choice. I thought I had no other option. And I was terrified. “I found there was coercion, lack of information, at times outright lies, at times force.”

She changed her mind on the abortion table, and tried to get up:

“I asked to get up. I said ‘please let me up. Let me off this table, out of this room. I don’t want this anymore.’ I said, ‘I can’t do this. This is wrong and I feel really bad about this. Just let me go. You can keep the money.’ And they shouted for more people and I had four people holding me down. One – a nurse – and a staff member on each arm. The doctor aborted my child. I’m screaming. That’s not choice.

It was not pro-woman, it was not pro-me. They didn’t care about me, they didn’t respect my opinion. They were just in-’n-out. They wanted me gone and they wanted my baby gone.
In the end, I was left alone in the recovery room, wishing that I could turn back time and just go an hour, a week, a month back in time and re-do everything.

It took me a long time to recover…physically, and then mentally, emotionally, spiritually. It was devastating.”

She comments on laws that require women to be shown a sonogram if they ask to see it:

“That’s part of my story. Because I was there in the center and asked to see my child’s ultrasound. I asked and I was refused. They said no. And that’s always haunted me. I’ve always wanted and wished, again, that I could go back. And knowing that women in Wyoming now have that right is so impactful.”
