"Don't like abortion? Don't have one." If you don't want an abortion, we're assured, the legality of abortion will have no impact on you. Most women don't realize the scary truth that you don't have to want an abortion to get an abortion. Sometimes all you have to do is trust a prochoice ob/gyn.

My own friend Laura very nearly became a victim of such an ob/gyn. She began spotting during her most recent pregnancy, and went to her doctor for an examination. He told her that she had begun to miscarry. Then he turned to his nurse and asked her to get a canula.

As a prolife activist, Laura associated "canula" with "abortion," so she asked the doctor what he was going to do. He explained that she had begun to miscarry, and that he was simply going to clean out her uterus to prevent infection. Laura refused, saying that if her fetus was going to die, she was going to allow nature to take its course. She would have nothing to do with the procedure he was proposing.

As it turned out, there was nothing at all wrong with Laura's fetus, and she gave birth to a perfectly healthy little boy.

The incident shook her up, and she spoke of it to her friends. She learned that she was not the first pregnant patient whose spotting was diagnosed as a "miscarriage." She was just the first we know of who refused the procedure.

None of the other women can ever know if they were indeed miscarrying, or if they'd been subjected to unwanted and unsolicited abortions of healthy, wanted pregnancies.

Laura's experience underscores the importance of choosing only a prolife ob/gyn to treat your wanted pregnancy. Her experience was not unique. And her doctor was not the only ob/gyn to subject women to unwanted, unsolicited abortions.

Next, we'll look at some of the cases that were uncovered during the research for Lime 5.
