New Brunswick pays only for abortions performed in hospitals, and women require referrals from two doctors stating the procedure is "medically necessary."Providing what kind of care? Is this the kind of "complete care" she is talking about?
An unnamed doctor filed a complaint with the Human Rights Commission, asserting that the policy is discriminatory and prevents her from providing her patients complete care.
“The doctor brought the ultrasound in and hooked it up so that he could see the baby. On the ultrasound screen, I could see the heartbeat… The doctor went in with forceps and grabbed the baby’s legs and pulled them down into the birth canal. Then he delivered the baby’s body and the arms — everything but the head. The doctor kept the head right inside the uterus.Yes, "doctor"
The baby’s little fingers were clasping and unclasping, and his little feet were kicking. Then the doctor stuck the scissors in the back of his head, and the baby’s arms jerked out, like a startle reaction, like a flinch, like a baby does when he thinks he is going to fall.
The woman wanted to see her baby, so they cleaned up the baby and put it in a blanket and handed it to her. She cried the whole time. She kept saying, “I am so sorry, please forgive me.” I was crying, too. I couldn’t take it. That baby boy had the most perfect, angelic face I think I have ever seen in my life…
And I'd recommend everyone to go ahead and keep reading the article. Especially to all those who wonder "what business do (we) have telling what can or cannot go in or come out of some other woman's or girl's body". Maybe they'll finally realize that a baby in the womb has a body too. And that he wants to live just as much as anyone else.
