When abortion was legalized in 1973 doctors, nurses and patients could not see the baby being aborted. Today with Ultra Sound an abortionist can see the baby as he or she performs the abortion. Abby Johnson former clinic director of Planned Parenthood in Bryan, Texas was blind to the fact that abortion was murder until she participated in an “ultrasound-guided abortion”
In her book, “Unplanned”, Abby Johnson writes,
“I applied the lubricant to the patient’s belly, then maneuvered the ultrasound probe until her uterus was displayed on the screen and adjusted the probe’s position to capture the image of the fetus (baby). I could see the entire perfect profile of the baby.
Just like Grace at 12 weeks, I thought, remembering my very first peek at my daughter three years before snuggled securely in my womb. The image before me startled me. I could clearly see the profile of the head, arms, legs and even tiny fingers and toes. Perfect.
“Thirteen weeks,” I heard the nurse say after taking measurements to determine the fetus’s (baby’s) age. “Okay,” the doctor said, looking at me, “just hold the probe in place during the procedure so I can see what I I am doing.” My eyes still glued to the image of this perfectly formed baby, I watched as a new image entered the video screen. The cannula, a straw shaped instrument attached to the end of the suction tube had been inserted into the uterus and was nearing the baby’s side. It looked like an invader on the screen – out of place. My eyes looked at the patient’s face; tears flowed from the corners of her eyes. I could see she was in pain. “It’s almost over,” I whispered.
At first the baby didn’t seem aware of the cannula. It gently probed the baby’s side, and for a quick second I felt relief. Of course, I thought, the fetus (baby) doesn’t feel pain. I had assured countless women of this, as I’d been taught by Planned Parenthood. The next moment was the sudden jerk of a tiny foot as the baby started kicking, as if to move away from the probing invader. As the cannula pressed in, the baby began struggling to turn and twist away. It seemed clear to me that the fetus could feel the cannula and did not like the feeling. Then the doctor’s voice broke through, startling me.
“Beam me up, Scotty,” he said light heartedly to the nurse. He was telling her to turn on the suction. In an abortion the suction isn’t turned on until the doctor feels he has the cannula in exactly the right place. The cannula was being rotated by the doctor and I could see the tiny body violently twisted with it. Then the tiny body crumpled and disappeared into the cannula. The last thing I saw was a tiny, perfectly formed backbone sucked into the tube. The uterus was empty. Totally Empty.
