From one post-abortive woman:
“I was given a saline abortion at four months, and I never once was told of the pain involved during the injection of the saline solution into my womb. Neither was I told of the pain involved in labor, not even that my body would go into labor to reject the struggling, dying baby that was being burned alive in my uterus. Over four hours after the injection, I gave birth to my dead son. I know he was my son because I asked the nurse what it was as she removed the bedpan, and she said, “It’s a boy.”
Testimony received the National Abortion Rights Action League (now NARAL Pro-Choice America) and Sen. Gordon Humphrey.
