"Once came out breathing."<quoted text>
As a former nurse another lifetime ago, the hospital where I worked in the late 1970s was one of the first in Florida to perform terminated pregnancies legally - "TPs".
I was of the mindset abortion was better than bringing a life into the world that would be unloved or neglected. Until I witnessed two abortions - one only 14 weeks.
Not only did I do a 180 degree turn against abortion when that dead baby was put into a cold metal bowl and I was instructed to take it to a room where it would be discarded but I requested not to be assigned TP patients any longer.
I wasn't the only nurse to do so.
One baby came out breathing. The same professionals who had tried to kill it just moments before were panic-stricken trying to feed it to keep it alive.
That juxtiposition will forever be ingrained in my mind.
Yeah, right. LTAs weren't and aren't performed in the same manner or in the same venue, as early term abortions. They were and are a much moreover complicated procedure. You should have stopped writing before that sentence, lady. Lol
