Botched Abortion

I'm curious if anyone has had an abortion that had bad side effects or had something go wrong, or if you know anyone that has experienced this.  

I only know of someone that had a very late term abortion at 28 weeks, she had to give birth to the baby and then they severed the spinal cord.  But I don't think that is legal in the US anymore - this was done in the early 90s.

Never had a botched abortion, but your clue that something has gone awry would be: fever, chills, vomiting, sharp abdominal pain and tenderness, and excessive bleeding.

That is beyond awful. I am pro choice but if the baby is born alive or is able to be born alive it should be considered murder.

What you're describing is not an abortion, it's MURDER. The thought of that makes me freaking sick to my stomach. Some people are truly evil. They'll get theirs though.

My friend had one last year, but the doc didn't remove all of the fetus, so she got chills, fever and had to be hospitalized. I was scared for her.

I was born after my mom had to have a medical dnc.. She found out after she was prego and the doctors were shocked I survived that and my mom was very thankful :)
