‘My baby began thrashing about…She was in agony’: woman describes horrific saline abortion | The Pulse | LifeSite
May 17, 2017
“…The director of nursing at one abortion clinic described how, every once in a while, a woman coming in for an abortion will ask for her aborted baby to be baptized.
… When it’s a big fetus, you will hear them asking a lot of questions: “is it a boy or is it a girl?”, “Will it be baptized?” We’ve had many requests for that too. We do it, it doesn’t mean a thing. But if it rests somebody’s peace of mind, you baptize a fetus. I mean for the psychological effect. It’s not recognized by the church, how can you murder a fetus and then baptize it? I feel if it makes the woman happy, why not? If it satisfies her psychological hangup, whatever it is.… Anything under 24 weeks goes for the incinerators. They ask you what you’re going to do with the fetus, you can’t say incinerate it. I tell them it goes to city burials.
