With U.S. Presidential Candidates eager to control women's reproductive organs, Dr. Jen Gunter goes to show in her story that banning abortions isn't going to stop them, but simply create more situations where they're done illegaly -- and they go horribly wrong.
On the gurney lay a young woman the color of white marble. The red pool between her legs, ominously free of clots, offered a silent explanation.
"She arrived a few minutes ago. Not even a note." My resident was breathless with anger, adrenaline, and panic.
I had an idea who she went to. The same one the others did. The same one many more would visit. A doctor, but considering what I had seen he could't have any formal gynecology training. The only thing he offered that the well-trained provers didn't was a cut-rate price. If you don't know to ask, well, a doctor is a doctor. That's assuming you are empowered enough to have such a discussion. I was also pretty sure his office didn't offer interpreters.
I needed equipment not available in an emergency room. I looked at the emergency room attending. "Call the OR and tell them we need a room. Now." And then I turned to my resident. I was going to tell him to physically make sure a room, any room, was ready when we arrived, but he had already sprinted towards the stairs. He knew.
Dr. Gunter also wrote a follow-up on the story.
