Somewhere on facebook, a group of karens believe this.


PreOpTransCentaur

There are definitely redditors that believe this too.


MamieJoJackson

One of them is my mom, and she also believes that abortions are performed in extremely violent and disgusting ways that have only ever existed in the deranged minds of her psycho Facebook groups. I can't even go into them here, they're so awful, and she says these things like it's fact, ffs.


OriginalGuzzler

And they vote :(

Well I guess we know the storyline to the next Boss Baby movie...


Benevolent_Grouch

Having worked in 13 hospitals… this person is more likely to have been a patient in a locked unit, than an employee.


Redstoneprime

More than likely a mental hospital.


RockyMountainHigh-

We still have those? I though Reagan closed them all.


SSara69

Considering she worked in a hospital one must assume she would have the ability to diagnose herself with schizophrenia.


BirdManOfAzkaban

I used to work in a hospital and I diagnose her with stupid.


SSara69

Wait now Im having the opposite perspective on it. Wouldnt that technically be possible depending on the age of the baby though. Maybe not literal crying out loud, but some sort of noise... I imagine they would use a method to finish them off after aborting. But if they just immediately throw them out and let them die that way then I feel like there could be some kind of noise they would make. And that idea is haunting to me lol. Also are abortes fetuses actually thrown in to the trash or are they brought elsewhere. I feel they would be used for science and research in one form or another, unless the mother specifically states not to. Which is an interesting thought...


BirdManOfAzkaban

We did limited abortions at our hospital, but they were packaged up and taken to the lab, not just thrown in the trash. Most were incinerated, I believe, but I could see some being used for research (I'd also assume that the mother would need to sign off on that?) But they're very dead when they're aborted. Very much so.


SSara69

Interesting how I would imagine they dont give mothers the option or make them aware of the fact that their fetuses may be brought to labs for research. Who do the fetuses technically belong to after an abortion. People who get abortions dont have that sort of idea come to mind commonly so its an easy thing to get away with in that way. Not to say its good or bad ultimately but mothers should have the right to know where there babies go at least.


BirdManOfAzkaban

Well they're technically treated a biological waste af transported in the same way as amputations etc. Which sounds super hesrtless if you think about it too much. So I'm not sure about property rights. It was such a rarity in our place that I never really gave it too much thought as plenty of other jobs (e.g. transporting bodies) desensitise you to a lot.


Lessllama

They do give the option, the woman has to consent to the fetus being used for research


Tojatruro

The also go to pathology first.


BirdManOfAzkaban

That's what I meant by the lab... the path' lab


Tojatruro

Oh, sorry, I clearly didn’t think that through.


BirdManOfAzkaban

Lol no worries, I didn't make it clear. We only did them very rarely, but we always had the same group protesting outside every week. Like we could go months without doing any and yet there they'd be... making out like our little hospital was a baby killing factory just churning them out the back door. It was sad.


Tojatruro

I was an O.R. Technician prior to abortion clinics, when hospitals performed them all. We never had protestors, that crap didn’t start until Reagan and his certifiably insane Surgeon General C. Edward Koop decided to convince Evangelicals that they would burn in hell for eternity if they supported choice, which would guarantee that they would vote Republican for the rest of their lives. They were correct.


BirdManOfAzkaban

Ah, this is the UK. Where our protesters were a handful of oldiewonks with seen-better-days signs, several scarfs and a big thermos of tea. And this still goes on even now. Cars drive past and honk/yell at them occasionally, to get a proper hobby.


PreOpTransCentaur

I'd advise you to look up how abortions are performed. You seem to be under the impression that like..whole, live, viable babies are pulled out in a procedure similar to birth and that's very incorrect.


[deleted]

Dude, they don't deliver babies and then kill them. That's not how this works and this isn't possible


SSara69

I was thinking more along the lines of sticking tools up there and pulling them out. Of course that breaks body parts up I would imagine which is what would lead to death. But with just this in mind thats what I was imagining. Them being pulled out but not completely being dead yet. I mean isnt that possible anyway? And use a suction tool too. But still these things dont guarantee immediate death. The fetus would die on its own after that right, unless they have a method for making sure they are dead. I also know they give some kind of medication (sometimes?). Im not sure if this would kill the fetus beforehand or what.


[deleted]

They give a shot directly to the heart. Even if they didn't...the process is going to cause death. They don't talke it out whole. They don't dilate you enough to.We're also not talking about at near term babies, even in most extreme cases. We're talking really small feti that can't live on their own. There are a few other reasons this isn't possible, even in the already impossible event that they pulled out a living, in tact fetus out. They wouldnt be able to cry without a doctor opening the airways; the lungs are filled with fluid at this stage and you need a shot for lung development if you are expected to deliver prematurely.


SSara69

That last bit is interesting about fluid in the lungs.


[deleted]

Well, babies are swimming around breathing in fluid the whole time. As it nears delivery time, the baby starts to develop lungs that can breathe air. If a baby is born premature, they need to account for that with medicine. In fact, they need to take action to clear the lungs in a lot of c sections as vaginal birth helps force the fluids out of the lungs.


Supreme0verl0rd

Yeah well my friend's sister's swimming instructor's garbage collector says this isn't true.


FredVIII-DFH

Just to throw fuel on this dumpster fire: Hospitals don't perform abortions. They're done at clinics. Hospital administrators don't want the headaches that would come with performing abortions. And it's not really that lucrative a business (regardless of what the fundies tell you).


[deleted]

I really wish they did. The clinic is awful. They took away my phone and wouldn't let my boyfriend come in with me while I waited in pain for 5 hours. A hospital would have been infinitely better


FredVIII-DFH

You have my sympathies, but I can understand their precautions considering that the pro-life zealots keep threatening to kill them.


[deleted]

I mean, they threaten to kill the clinic people. And I also feel it's be safer for everyone because hospitals have great security. Better than a clinic, at any rate


FredVIII-DFH

If it was up to me they'd do these procedures at hospitals and security would be air tight, but I suspect that a lot of doctors would be skittish to work in any hospital that performed abortions due to the stalking and assassination of Dr. Tiller in 2009 -- even doctors who don't provide abortion services. I guess this means that the murder of Dr. Tiller was an act of domestic terrorism since it had the desired effect of terrorizing a group of people.


[deleted]

You do make a good point. It would endanger other, unrelated doctors. What a horrible world we live in


Tojatruro

Of all the anti-abortion crap I have read, this is right up there with the dumbest.


PerpetuallyDisplaced

I don't think strawberry jelly cries.


maximoOne

What the fuck!


Mordetrox

I'm pro-life but this is just stupid. There are so many other reasons to not approve of the practice


Wild-Ad3458

what a load of crap. what moron would post this?
