NPR Airs Audio Of Woman Having An Abortion

  • “Most patients are partially awake during the procedures, they get IV medication for pain and anxiety,” the reporter continued. “The lights are dimmed, there’s soothing music, it actually feels a lot like a childbirth, in a medical gown, your bare legs and stirrups, and a person next to you, saying, ‘You can do this,’” Wells said during the 11-minute segment.
  • A staffer named Brandy told the mother, “Just keep breathing,” as the child was suctioned from the mother’s body.
  • Upon completion, the audio includes encouragement from someone in the room saying, “You did it!”
