I was a nurse practicing in North Carolina. I worked on a Gynecology/tumor unit at a teaching hospital. The unit included 4 prostaglandin abortion beds. The babies who were aborted were between 18-20wks of age. Most women were young, but occasionally there were patients whose babies had life threatening defects. I assisted the doctor in the initial placement of the prostaglandin. Then the women were left on the floor to deliver.
In an abortion by prostaglandin, powerful hormones are used to induce labor and the woman essentially gives birth, but to a baby that’s too young to survive. The contractions are so violent that they can kill the baby and are extremely painful for the mother. Babies aborted by prostaglandin often have bruising over their entire bodies. For the most part, the abortion business stopped using prostaglandin because so many babies were born alive.
