Welcome to reality: I'm not sympathetic to the "victim" in this article. It seems like a woman who had an abortion in a Scotland hosptial was dismayed to discover the "products of conception" (in layman's terms -- the aborted fetus) sitting in a jar in a room where the woman was using a phone to call her husband.
She said: "I fell apart. I couldn't believe anyone could be careless enough just to leave it lying there. That image will live with me forever."
Mum-of-three Nicola, 27, received a a full apology from the hospital but plans to sue North Glasgow NHS Trust, claiming the handling of the abortion left her psychologically scarred.
Yes, she's psychologically scarred -- and the baby is dead. It's apparent that this is a case of abortion being used as a form of contraception. The couple have three other children, but decided a fourth would be too much to handle.
Here's an alternate solution: A-D-O-P-T-I-O-N.
(Nicola) said: "Women need more counselling before abortions, not less.
"I will never get over what happened to me."
Neither will the baby.
