The first day, Jessica said that she received an injection of digoxin and her overall visit to the clinic lasted about twenty minutes.
Digoxin is a drug injected into an unborn baby to cause his or her heart to stop in preparation for what amounts to a stillborn birth.
It was very painful, Jessica reiterated.
“The first day I was told there would be mild cramping. And, you actually go into labor. When they send you home…I had my son natural and this was much worse.”
Because the pain was so acute, Jessica’s husband called the abortion clinic’s emergency number and they told her under no circumstances to go to the emergency room.
Jessica said that on day two she was not given any pain medication for the procedure.
“I was told I would have medications and fluids…I was expecting sedation and medication,” she said.
She recalls that after forty-five minutes the abortionist had to stop to call 911 due to a perforated uterus and massive blood loss.
