Pro-Life Nurse Asked to Assist Abortion Told: “You just have to catch the baby’s head. Don’t worry, it’s already dead.”

As we’ve reported, a dozen pro-life nurses in New Jersey are fighting for their right to follow their conscience and not be forced to assist at abortions.

This quote in The Washington Post by one of the nurses stopped me in my tracks when I read it:

One of the nurses, Fe Esperanza R. Vinoya, said a manager told her: “‘You just have to catch the baby’s head. Don’t worry, it’s already dead.’ ”

Can you imagine anything more horrific than being forced to “catch” a dead baby’s head? A baby who only minutes before was alive in its mother’s womb?

Pro-abort writers and bloggers are hysterically (I don’t use the word lightly) attempting to attack these women’s motives.

Here’s just a sample of mockery by Erin Ryan of the feminist blog Jezebel:

“From the way the complaint describes it, you’d think they were being ordered to line babies up and shoot them with a crossbow in front of their children.”

I won’t even repeat some of the other things I’ve seen written about these pro-life nurses.

I think the need by pro-abort writers to hysterically blow this story out of proportion is telling: they have to exaggerate because the actual reality of what these nurses have been asked to do is truly horrifying. No one is talking about shooting babies with crossbows, we are talking about crushing a baby’s skull while the baby is still inside his or her mother and severing it from its tiny body. Pro-lifers demand that all sides simply face the gruesome facts.

For a movement that claims to be for “choice”, pro-aborts absolutely cannot admit that pro-life nurses have a choice not to assist at abortions. But the more important choice facing advocates of abortion is whether or not they will agree to discuss and confront the reality of abortion.

So, stow the crossbows and contemplate the heads of the poor victims of abortion instead.

    “You just have to catch the baby’s head. Don’t worry, it’s already dead.” Oh really? I would have never noticed! Of course it is dead, smarty-pants: you just killed it.

    No, seriously: I have to fight day by day against the very same problem as these corageous nurses, that being the disrespect for objection of conscience. As a medical student, I move in a particularly hostile environment for the sick and the helpless, be it born or unborn – which is rather ironic, since hospitals are supposed to be the places where we take care of these people, not dispose of them. But it does happen, sadly.

    Sadly for anti-lifers, however, we do not intend to back down. And these nurses are not alone; far from that, they are twelve among many, many, many other inspiring persons who stay true and stay strong for what really does matter: human life and health. In this case, both the health of women and children. As for how abortion may be of any benefit to women’s health, I am still waiting for anyone to provide at least the smallest piece of actual scientifical evidence. All I get to read or hear is “women’s choice” and “women’s health/life”… well, I am still waiting here: where is the actual medical evidence (and please, please do not come up with Wikipedia, for science’s sake) that abortion does help in any way to improve women’s health?

    Sounds like the pro-aborts are anti-choice.  BAMF.  It ain’t yo body bitch!

    Facebook is hiding this story from my news feed and from my “favorites”. After I recommended it and also made a comment, neither the recommendation nor the comment appeared anywhere on my page. So I made a direct link and comment on my time-line. Now only that direct link appears on my time-line, but NOT on my news feed. That means people (even friends) will see it ONLY if they go directly to my page. Facebook is well-known for pulling this kind of censorship in response to false claims of “offensive” links. In this case, it just means the pro-abortion people don’t want to be confronted with the humanity of those they are killing. The underhanded thing is Facebook doesn’t even tell us they are censoring us.

    Why are we surprised or sickened by this. This what pro-choice means.

    I don’t even know how anyone could sever the body parts of a living human being and not call it murder. It’s truly horrifying- far greater than the Holocaust. This is America’s infanticide.
