One night a lady delivered and I was called to come and see her because she was ‘uncontrollable.’ I went into the room, and she was going to pieces; she was having a nervous breakdown, screaming and thrashing. The other patients were upset because this lady was screaming. I walked in, and here was this little saline abortion baby kicking. It had been born alive, and was kicking and moving for a little while before it finally died of those terrible burns, because the salt solution gets into the lungs and burns the lungs too. I’ll tell you one thing about D&E . You never have to worry about a baby’s being born alive. I won’t describe D&E, other than to say that, as a doctor, you are sitting there tearing, and I mean tearing — you need a lot of strength to do it — arms and legs off of babies and putting them in a stack on top of the table.
