Holy Moly what the heck?

Hello - large lawsuit on the way. Stupid nurse couldn't even follow the simplest of job tasks. That should have been 'habit'.(sigh) And I USUALLY don't regard people in the medical field as idiots. I'm seeing more and more of them. I guess the medical profession are desperately understaffed and will keep morons on the payroll.

I just got off the phone and my 'bro' immediately asked where the hell was this. He was relieved to find out NOT Canada. But still.........

Crazy, crazy story.

A number of problems with the whole process. First, there should be a separation between abortion clinic and basic prenatal assessment and care. Secondly, obviously he nurse was not being very vigilent about he tx. Third, the pregnant woman also seemed quite uneducated as she took meds from a complete stranger without being assessed at all and with no medical hx being taken.

I've used Cytotec from http://c-misoprostol.info twice in the privacy of my own home, no one even knew but me and my sister. No one ever knew that I was even pregnant. The drug cost $80 on the internet, no prescription needed. No side effects either time and both were complete abortions. I passed the fetus within hours of incerting the pills. This method is used in third world countries all of the time where abortion is illegal. I personally believe this method should be recognized as a legal abortion method here. It was less tramatic and painless.
