Abortionist discusses possible complications, including “most embarrassing” – a baby that doesn’t die

Abortionist Jane Hodgson wrote about the instrument used to perform early abortions:

“The Karmann cannula is a soft, flexible cannula… However, it is not totally innocuous. I have known of perforations to occur with its use. Another disadvantage is the fact that with a small flexible cannula like this, it is very easy to slip over the implantation site. Continuing pregnancy may result. This is a most embarrassing complication. Also, there is a higher instance of retained tissue.”
