Here's the story told by the executive director of a Planned Parenthood clinic who quit her job the day after she had to assist in an abortion, instead of just working in the front office.
It was a surgical abortion of a 12- to 13-week-old fetus, in which she held an ultra-sound over the mother's abdomen so the doctor could better see what he was doing. She describes how she got a good side view of the fetus and its face. As the doctor stuck the probe into the uterus, she could see the fetus actually trying to avoid it, as it was "fighting for its life."
Here is the video of an interview of Abby Johnson describing what she saw:
I have been angrily condemned as being hateful and ignorant for a previous post describing the details of an abortion. I have no compassion for the woman who has to have one, I'm told.
Actually, I do. But having compassion for the woman who has to make such a difficult decision and for the victim of an abortion are not mutually exclusive. The media regularly report in detail many horrendous details--from an award-winning picture of a naked young girl fleeing in pain from a napalm bombing in Vietnam to bodies piled up in Nazi death camps. It is considered to be important information for the public to have.
Saying displays of a fetus in its death agony should never be shown is intentional ignorance. It presumes that there is only one life involved. And, in some cases when it is done for the fetus's "own good" displays an incredible degree of arrogance.
I will continue to tell the facts that the abortion industry doesn't want discussed.
