You have to remember the hospital where I worked was one of the first hospitals in the entire state of Florida who performed "terminated pregnancies" right after abortion was legalized.Itmust've been a really stupid nurse if she thought feeding would be an appropriate response...which is why I don't buy the story.
We were all flying by the seat of our pants. Botched abortions weren't even on the landscape - much less how to deal with it.
The reaction among the staff when the reality of abortion hit that close to home created a lot of mixed emotions and tension as well.
I wasn't the only one who requested not to be assigned to TP patients any longer after assisting in a few of them. And I was pro-choice before then.
