‘She Was Alive And Crying!’: Abortion Nurse Quits After Baby Born Alive, Left To Die
Janet Rogers* worked in a hospital that performed abortions. After 30 years, she has come forward with her story.
According to Rogers:
My husband was a resident at a hospital and I just got “the job of my dreams” at a nearby Oakland hospital. I was very much a believer in the abortion issue and now I felt I was going to be part of it.
I got hired as a charge nurse at this clinic that did late term abortions. I spent about 30 days on the day shift getting familiar with everything. I would witness and assist the doctor in the actual procedure, injection of drugs to the fetus, the seaweed, etc. On the day shift I really never saw the actual start of the contractions or the termination process. I was uncomfortable, but I really thought to myself, this was something new and I needed to get more experience.
In these abortions, the woman was dilated with laminaria, which are sticks made of seaweed that are placed in the woman’s cervix. These sticks slowly absorb fluid and dilate the cervix; they can be kept in overnight or longer. Drugs were injected into the baby to kill him or her on the first day the procedure. Late-term abortions are often performed in a similar way today.
Rogers was insulated from some of the horror of these abortion procedures. She did not actually witness the dead baby or the pain of the women going through contractions.
Rogers would later be promoted to a position where she would deal with the actual aborted babies. Other clinic workers have talked about how they were eased into the more difficult parts of their jobs in a similar way. They were started off doing things that were less emotionally difficult, such as record-keeping, receptionist duties or taking blood pressure, then gradually given more responsibilities until they were handling body parts or assisting in late-term abortions. By that time, they are “in too deep” and committed to their jobs. It is a way that some abortion clinics have been known to manipulate their workers.
Whether or not this was the case with Rogers, she would have a life-changing experience working with one late-term abortion:
One evening a young girl was having a very difficult time. I was there with the doctor. I knew even though the doctor wrote this patient was 15 weeks, she was close to 30 weeks. This happened quite a bit, but no one ever said anything.
Other abortion providers, such as Carol Everett and Kathy Sparks, have spoken about their clinics doing abortions further along than was legally allowed, and trying to hide that fact. Kathy Sparks’ clinic disposed of illegally aborted late term abortions down the toilet.
When she delivered this tiny baby (it looked full term to me) she was actually alive and crying. The doctor said to me, “Put it in the room and close the door. Do not enter til the morning shift.” I immediately took the crying baby and wrapped it up and laid it in a room. I then immediately
