Thirty-one. That’s how many unborn babies Missouri abortionist Colleen McNicholas aborted during just one day on the job.
The women’s magazine Marie Claire recently profiled McNicholas for its June edition, portraying her as a heroine for dedicating a grueling number of hours to her abortion work.
McNicholas is heavily involved in the pro-abortion movement, not only doing abortions in three states but also setting up fundraising organizations to pay for them, lobbying state and federal legislators and hosting campaign events for pro-abortion candidates like Hillary Clinton, according to the interview.
“Part of the problem with being so committed and feeling so passionate about an issue is that it’s hard to say no,” McNicholas told the magazine. “It’s hard to say, ‘I can’t do that,’ because that means somebody is going without care, and what that means is, they’re probably going to have a baby they don’t want. So ultimately, I end up saying, ‘I can do one more day’ or ‘I can go one more place.’”
She is a frequent flyer, traveling to abort unborn babies in Missouri, Kansas and soon in Oklahoma, according to the report. Last year, the University of Missouri revoked her “refer and follow” hospital admitting privileges, blocking her from aborting unborn babies at the Columbia, Missouri Planned Parenthood, LifeNews reported. However, she still does abortions at the St. Louis location.
Here is more from the interview:
Whether McNicholas is performing a medical abortion, where the patient takes one pill at the clinic and a single dose of four others within the next 48 hours at home, or a surgical abortion, where the pregnancy is suctioned out of the uterus, she only needs about 10 minutes with each patient. She enters the room with a big smile and a cheerful hello, immediately trying to put patients at ease. The first question from surgical patients is usually, “Will it hurt?” McNicholas tells them she can’t promise it will be painless—most patients experience varying levels of cramping—but she can say it will be over quickly. The actual procedure only lasts three to five minutes. “You can handle anything for three minutes,” she tells patients.
And the hardest part of her job? Saying no to women who want late-term abortions but are past the legal limit.
“It’s so devastating to me to see a woman’s face when they don’t want to be pregnant and you’re the last person who can help them, and you can’t,” she said. “They are forced to continue with their pregnancy by law.”
McNicholas also frequently testifies in front of state legislatures. When she first got started, she remembered thinking, “Where are all the women who have abortions? Why aren’t they standing here with me?” she says. “But as time went on, I was like, Well, we don’t expect the people who have colonoscopies to come and talk to the legislature about it.”
Though the magazine does not mention it, one possible reason could be that women were hurt or regretted aborting their unborn babies. The report fails to mention that dozens of women have been hospitalized at the abortion clinics where McNicholas works. Pro-lifers documented 28 times in six years when women were hospitalized for abortion-related complications at her St. Louis facility.
Despite the magazine’s efforts to portray her in a positive light, between the lines, it is pretty obvious that McNicholas makes a lot of money off her deadly trade – enough to host campaign events at her home with Hillary Clinton and Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards.
According to the interview, the St. Louis abortion facility charges a woman between $545 and $1,470 for an abortion. With McNicholas doing 31 abortions a day, that clinic is bringing in up to $45,570 per day on abortions alone.
McNicholas told the reporter that, by telling her story, she hopes to inspire other doctors to become abortionists. Let’s hope the opposite is true.
