Former abortion doctor John Bruchalski sat down with pro-life activist Lila Rose a few weeks ago and gave her a bit of an inside scoop of what it's like to be an abortion doctor.
In the interview, he speaks of born alive babies, or botched abortions, and the way in which he would deal with them. He claims the babies would often cry, wheeze, or make squeaking noises, and, well, as an abortion doctor, here's what his first instinct was:
Bruchalski: "In the very next room, separated by eight inches of a wall maybe, the mom doesn't want it. Same gestational age, 22-23 weeks…Because it wasn't wanted, I didn't want it, so I broke water, gave her Pitocin and delivered her."
Rose: "Healthy baby?"
Bruchalski: "Healthy baby, making noise…like crying, wheezing, making squeaking noises. Do you know what my first instinct was? To suffocate it, and put a towel on it so mom wouldn't suffer."
Tragic stuff right there, but very important in our national debate over abortion. I mean, this was a live baby, a botched abortion. I'm told by the left that this never happens, but it seems like Dr. Bruchalski, unfortunately, had to deal with it on several occasions.
You'll be glad to hear that Bruchalski's story has a happy ending:
Bruchalski: "But because the baby was a little bit heavier than I thought, I picked it up and threw it on a scale. It showed that it weighed 505 grams. So that's five grams over what the state of Virginia considers a human life…
"I had to call the NICU, the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit to come in and resuscitate this fetus, this born child that I aborted…
"[The NICU doctor] looked quickly and realized what I did, and she said, ‘hey Bruchalski, stop treating my patients like little tumors."
Rose: "What happened to that baby?"
Bruchalski: "It went to the nursery and lived."
The baby lived!
One of very few happy endings in the abortion game, I'll assume.
