Abortionist's missed needle leads to life-changing question

Pregnant Woman in Hospital
A woman who, at 22 weeks pregnant, went to the Planned Parenthood in St. Paul for an abortion. She took the initial steps and returned the next day for the abortion with unidentified male and female abortionists.  The male doctor used a needle through the woman's stomach to give the baby a shot to stop its heart. “They told me he found the baby and he put the shot into him,” she says. “From what I found out later on, the baby didn't get the shot. They put the shot in the amniotic sack.” Knowing her son was still alive, she began asking questions. One was what would happen if the baby were born alive during the abortion?

“[The female abortionist] looked at him and she looked back at me,” the mother said, “and I was looking at her very puzzled, and she told me, We don't tell women this, and a lot of women don't even ask this question, but if we were to proceed with the abortion and the baby was to come out still alive and active, we most likely will break the baby's neck.”

The patient changed her mind and kept the baby.

Pro-Life Action Ministries in St. Paul suggests that the woman’s testimony in this case is ample evidence for an investigation.
