It’s not often—it’s a rarity, in fact– that a 100% pro-abortion congresswoman would reveal that she was the victim of a forced abortion.
Rep. Cori Bush represents the first district in Missouri. She was interviewed by PBS’s Margaret Hoover in a program that aired October 7. Hoover started the segment on abortion by characterizing Bush’s feeling as “nuanced.”
Having gone through one abortion, when she went to the abortion clinic as a 19 year old for a second, Bush said, “I thought I was ready.” Perhaps it was the reality of the “assembly line” abortion procedure but as she told Hoover
And I went in and I went through all the steps because they were like, it’s almost like an assembly line, you know, you go from room to room. And I got into the last room, I was helped up onto the table by the nurse, and I lay there and I started to think, well, one, I didn’t tell the father that that was about to happen. And I just felt like I needed more time. So I said “No, you know what, I’m not ready.” And the nurse, just, you know, wouldn’t listen to me. And I said, “No, I’m not ready.” And as I’m saying, “No,” they continue to pull the instruments and, you know, get everything ready.
“So you were telling them that you didn’t want to move forward, and they were ignoring you,” Hoover said.
Bush added, “Oh, they absolutely ignored me, even to the point of like, you know, ‘calm down,’ as if I was the problem.”
Bush then explained that she was looking around for someone to help her, someone to listen to her, but before she knew it, the suction instrument was inside her and started up.
