Dominique tells a heart-wrenching and horrifying personal story at ProLifeBlogs.com:
She quietly inhaled the gas mixture the doctor gave her to relax. Suddenly, there was incredible pain. She jerked her legs up and cried. The doctor yelled at her and told her not to move. If she moved, she would bleed to death. Her mind was swimming. This didn't seem right. This wasn't a normal medical procedure. Why didn't anyone talk to her? Why were they all so cold? Why was she here?
The gas was having little effect on the pain. She told the doctor she was feeling pain but he icily responded that he wouldn't give her anything else. The pain ripped through her body again. Hot tears flowed down her cheeks as she turned her head in shame.
Suddenly, a machine that sounded like a vacuum cleaner roared. As she looked up she saw clear tubes. And then she saw it passing through the tubes. What had she done? She felt as if they were tearing this child out of her body. Would she ever forget the noise of that machine? Her chest heaved in uncontrollable sobs as the realization of what she had done to her unborn child sprang forth in her soul.
What a terrible realization that must be. Too late.
