Many years ago I personally met a delivery room nurse that told me her emotionally painful story, which traumatically affected her life.

She said that her doctor tried to abort a baby, but the baby was surviving. He strongly yelled at her, telling her to dispose of the baby.

She took the baby and while hidding in a utility room crying, she comforted the baby, which died without immediate medical attention.

That's why I often call abortion, murder. It's difficult to describe it any other way.

Medical professionals will terminate pregnancy to save a mother's life if there has to be a choice.

Saint Gianna Beretta Molla , patron saint of mothers, physicians, and unborn children, chose her baby's life over her own.

A medical professional would NOT risk a mother's life on purpose, if it came down to a choice between the baby's and the mother's life, if the mother wanted to go on living.

Of course rape and incest are very painful to go through. They are not the baby's fault.

Just 1% of women obtain an abortion because they became pregnant through rape, and less than 0.5% do so because of incest, according to the Guttmacher Institute. Abortion & Rape
